Cynthia “Cyndee” Kay Holle Ulmer, of Avon Park, Fla., went home to be with the Lord on Monday May 22, 2023, in Sebring, Fla., at the age of 76. She was born on Dec. 31, 1946, to Charles H. McColley and Margaret Hitesman in Muncie. She was a 1964 graduate of Royerton High School in Muncie.
After high school, Cyndee spent most of her life in the Warsaw and North Webster area. Professionally, she worked for Zimmer Biomet and retired after more than 20 years. She previously worked for First United Methodist Church in Warsaw and United Telephone Co.
Cyndee dedicated her time to giving back to the veterans of this country. Cyndee and her husband of 30 years, Robert “Bob” Ulmer, were members of many veterans associations spanning from Indiana to Florida, such as the American Legion Post 69, the Moose, the VFW 4300, Amvets Post 21, VFW 9853, all of Sebring and Avon Park, Fla. Along with the Eagles, the Blue Goose Brigade, the DAV and the HCVVO, all of Indiana. She was also past president of the American Legion Auxiliary Post 253 and the VFW Auxiliary in Syracuse. Cyndee was passionate about being involved with these organizations and had many friends in every location. She gave no thought of a reward or anything in return.
Cyndee’s life was one of commitment and care for her family and friends. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend. She will be ever present in the hearts of her daughters, Tonya Stanford (Pat) and Heather Nave; stepdaughters, Karen Olds and Shelly Pring; four grandchildren; numerous stepgrandchildren; and many step great-grandchildren. She is further survived by her first husband, Jerry Holle, as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, one brother and two sisters.
