As a child she enjoyed riding ponies with her friends in parades, all over town, and on back roads of the country, playing softball, swimming, taking trips to the Black Hills of South Dakota, riding motorcycles water and snow skiing. She was fortunate to live close to her Grandpa and Grandma Hollstein. Cyndi loved Grandma’s cooking and memorable rides in the country with her Grandpa (where she first learned to drive at about age 8). After Cyndi’s father, John, moved to Custer, South Dakota, she spent memorable time with her Dad camping, hiking and staying at his home in the Black Hills. Cyndi gained another father, Fritz, who adored her and always called her his favorite.
