(nee DIDUCH)

It is with heavy hearts, and tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Cindy Perillo, on January 18, 2021 at the age of 64. Cindy was born on November 23, 1956 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
She is survived by her loving husband Frank; her brother Wayne (Lilliane); sister-in-law Lenore; brother-in-law Bob; in-laws, Rosa (Felice), Geraldina (Greg), Rocchina (Art), Anna (Joe), Molly (Larry), Maria-Enza (Lucio); as well as her many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was predeceased by her mother Louise; father Leon; brother Gary; and sister Charlotte.
Cindy and Frank were a match made in heaven, meeting at the Mint where they both worked. They were married on March 17, 1984, and for 37 years, they were inseparable. They did everything together, from grocery shopping, carpooling to work, to their annual trips to the desert. Cindy loved her trips with Frank. Twice a year they would head off to their condo in Vegas for two weeks. Their "second home". The love, compassion, hilarious banter, empathy and care between the two of them was like no other. They were truly meant to be together, and were so lucky to have found each other in this lifetime.
Family was everything to Cindy. She was the heart of it. She never missed a birthday, a get-together, a holiday, a dance recital, or any sort of achievement. She was always so supportive of everyone. It was in her nature. She always wanted to be surrounded by her nieces, nephews and the kids.
The Brereton Lake days were always filled with that. Cindy loved the cottage and spending time out there all year round with family and lake friends. Unless there was a thunderstorm, then you could find her under her bed.
Cindy was one in a million. She was the most selfless, empathetic, emotional, loving, supportive, positive, caring, smart person you ever met. She loved her job at River Ridge, her volunteer work formally at the Maples Community Club, and her family and friends. She loved life and always showed up with a smile on her face, lighting up a room with her bright aura and infectious attitude. Saying she will be missed is an understatement.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Liver Foundation in Cindy's honour.
There will be a private Celebration of Life at a later date.

"We love you, we will miss you,
until we meet again."

Condolences & Memories (37 entries)

  • My deepest condolences Frank. I know its over a year, but I never knew. Cindy and I met working at L. V. Patterson and then East Man Feeds. We had some great times be it at the "Gay Cavalier", "Pandora Inn, or her cabin, but we also had some not great times which I prefer to forget. Even though we were not in touch with each other, when ever we did meet up it was like old times, always so much to talk about, always good laughs. I can't believe she is gone. Rest in peace Cindy. Until we meet again! - Posted by: sandra moffat (Friend) on: Feb 15, 2022

  • Words cannot describe the sadness at the loss of this truly wonderful person. We had the privilege to work with, volunteer with and become friends with a person who would do anything for someone she called a friend. To say she was a giving person would be an understatement. She loved children and you could see the joy being around them brought her. She was always there to help with any events at the community centre. She was loved by all who knew her. Our kids were sad to hear of her passing. They loved Cindy and had also adopted her as part of their pack. We will miss the brunches that we used to have with her. We will miss her smile and her laughter.Our deepest condolences to Frank, family, And to Amber you were more than a niece to her, you had a special place in her heart. - Posted by: The Tocci Family (Friends) on: Jan 22, 2021
