Cindy was born in North Bay, Ontario on December 28, 1961. Cindy grew up in North Bay. She graduated from Ecole Secondaire Algonquin and went on to follow her artistic passion, graduating with a Diploma in Animation from Sheridan College.
Cindy returned to North Bay where she embarked on a long career as a designer/digitizer for Wrightway Sportswear. Her work can literally be found on the jackets, jerseys and hats of club members and sports teams around the world. Outside of work Cindy enjoyed a simple life, doing crafts, gardening, going for walks, and spending time at her country home in Rutherglen.
Cindy never married. She instead focused her energies on her family, her home, her work, and her hobbies. She had a great love of animals from a young age, and until recently always had a dog.
Cindy is survived by her mother June Ohlman (nee Ryan), her brothers Michael Ohlman, Jeffrey Ohlman, Stephen Ohlman, her sister-in-laws Tina Ohlman (nee Ferris) and Carmen Thierfeldt. She will be lovingly remembered by her nephew Keita Ohlman and her niece Akina Ohlman, and other family and friends.
Cindy is predeceased by her father Vince Ohlman.
