Cynthia (Michael) Yensel, 61, of London, Ohio, passed away Nov. 17, 2014, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
She was born June 8, 1953, in Wabash.
Cindy was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter and sister. Cindy worked as a nurse in Children’s Hospitals for nearly 40 years. Recently she was a nurse practitioner at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, for the last 13 years. Cindy was one of a kind kindred spirit. She always focused on the needs of others before hers. She flourished in her profession with a positive “can-do” attitude and was unafraid to take on a difficult situation. Her love for her family and friends will be greatly missed. Cindy was also an avid Indiana Hoosier basketball fan and loved her college basketball.
