Cindy Sue Fisher-Ojeda, age 61, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at River City Living Community.
She was born on May 12, 1957 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Eldon Leroy and Doris (Bastean) Elledge. Her mother later married, Paul Richard Fisher, who adopted and raised Cindy from the age of three.
She was married on September 6, 1996 at Natural Bridge in Henley, Mo. to Leo Ojeda who preceded her in death in February of 2012.
A lifelong resident of Cole County, she attended school at the Cole County R-V School in Eugene, Mo.
Cindy was employed with Scholastic for over 10 years and was a member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
Cindy worked hard as a single mother to raise three children and loved spending time with her family playing cards and yahtzee. She called her grandbabies every day to check in on them and was such a good listener. She loved listening to music while spending time with her siblings and friends. Cindy was easy going, giving and thoughtful – she never knew a stranger. Her family will miss her dearly.
