Cindy J. Kensmoe


Cindy Jane Kensmoe passed into eternal peace, June 20, 2022, with her daughter at her bedside.

Cindy was born September 16, 1958, to William and Ruth (Baker) Stiffler in Brownsville, TX. She moved many times throughout her childhood but settled in Strum, after falling in love with Dan. The two were married May 27, 1978, and awhile later had two children, Bradley and Bailee.

Cindy enjoyed working with the public, especially throughout her seven years as a cook for Eleva Elementary School. Her co-workers and the children adored her sense of humor and ability to make everyone feel special. Cindy’s zest for life, contagious laugh and unconditional love made her a friend to anyone who knew her and a treasure to those who loved her. She was a generous and caring soul who loved to celebrate any occasion, always cheered for the Packers, masterfully decorated for the holidays and lit up every room with her beautiful big smile and personality. She was blessed with the gift of gab and you could often hear her before you could see her! Cindy cherished her family and spent most of her time doting on them. She was the absolute best ‘Nana’ who shared her love of dancing, swimming, shopping and sweets with her granddaughters every chance she had! If you were in Cindy’s presence, you were having fun and making memories to last a lifetime.

She is survived by her husband, Daniel Kensmoe; children: Bradley (Mandy) Kensmoe and Bailee (Aaron) Corlett; granddaughters: Quinn and Gracey Kensmoe and Camryn Corlett; sisters: Janet (Mike) Boulet, Dianne (Bill) Pavia, Donna Sulivan, Karen Lopez, Paula (Dave) Minor, Denise (Eric) Boehne and Shawn (Scott) Scheel; step-brother, Jerry Bacinett; father-in-law, Roger Kensmoe; brothers and sisters-in-law: William (Julie) Kensmoe, Jeanine (Paul) Windjue, Michael (Debbie) Kensmoe, Thomas (Sara) Kensmoe and Douglas Kensmoe; a friend who was more like a sister, Judy Berg; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and loved ones.

Cindy was preceded in death by her beloved dog, Winnie; her sisters: Lori Ann Stiffler and Cheryl (Stiffler) Foye; mother-in-law, Mary Kensmoe; brother-in-law, Paul Sulivan; and her parents.

We would like to thank her staff and family at The Beehive in Eau Claire, for all the love, kindness and care during the final part of her journey.
