Cindy Kaleilehua Piltz, loving daughter, sister, aunt, and friend; passed away at the age of 49 in Orem, Utah. Our beautiful daughter was born on October 17, 1970 in Salt Lake City. She had many health issues and failed to thrive for several months. As her parents, we were told that she probably wouldn’t live to be a year old. But Cindy began to improve over the next year and proved the doctors wrong.
Cindy had a way of touching people’s lives and making them feel like they were the most important people in her life. She was a ray of sunshine and brought so much joy and happiness to everyone she knew. People became fast friends as soon as they met her.
Cindy’s health improved over the next few years but then began to decline. She was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure around 1984 and was put on oxygen permanently. She lived in a group home in American Fork and Orem, Utah beginning in 1994. Her favorite things to do were to spend time with her family, go out to eat, and going to the movies. She also loved to do puzzles for hours. Cindy was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and liked to attend church. She had a sincere love for the gospel.
Cindy will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her, but especially her family. Cindy is survived by her mother Nancy Wanner, brother Christopher (ReNae) Piltz, nieces Hannah Christine Kaleilehua Piltz and MaKenna Mai Victoria Piltz; nephew Alexander Piltz, and half-sister Tamera Richardson. Cindy is preceded in death by her father Harry Christopher Kalehua Piltz.
A graveside service will be held in her honor on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 12 P.M. at Larkin Sunset Lawn (2350 East 1300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah). A viewing will be held prior to services beginning at 11 A.M. in the same location. Interment at Larkin Sunset Lawn. Any contributions towards Cindy’s burial would be greatly appreciated.
