Obituary for Cynthia J. Beer

Cynthia Jean Beer, age 66, “Cindy”( as she was known to all who knew her), of Iowa City, passed away Sunday, July 22, 2018 in her sleep. The Lord called, and she answered.

Visitation will be held Friday from 4:00 to7:00 pm at Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service in Iowa City. Funeral services will begin Saturday at 11:00 am at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Iowa City. Burial will follow in Memory Gardens Cemetery in Iowa City.

The family asks that memorials be directed to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church or the Bird House Hospice Home of Johnson County.

Cindy was born February 16, 1952 in Williamsburg, Iowa, the daughter of Martin and Jo (Mente) Beer. Upon their arrival, she and her twin sister Connie were the joy of the family. Moving to Iowa City in 1954, Cindy graduated from Iowa City High School in 1970. She attended the University of Iowa and received a diploma from Kirkwood Community College.

Cindy loved horses. She took great delight in the dressage of exhibition and riding.
She always enjoyed gardening but her family was her joy and she loved family get togethers. This was especially true about the holidays – especially Christmas and Easter.

Survivors include her parents, Martin “Butch” & Jo Beer of Iowa City; a brother, Theodore “Ted” Beer (Deborah) of Overland Park, Kansas; uncle, Herbert Beer;
aunts, Paula Sandersfeld, Norma Mollison, Sylvia Taulbee, Lois Dunnevant, Genevieve Meier and Geraldine Reeve; nephews and nieces, Alicia McConathy (Mark), Eric Beer (Jennifer), Christopher Beer (Natalie), Jessica Kinney, Stephen Kinney (Kelly), James Kinney and Sarah Schroth (Matt) and 8 great-nephews.

Cindy was preceded in death by her grandparents, her maternal-twin sister Constance Beer Kinney and an infant brother, Michael Beer.
