Obituary for Cindy Jo Mobley

Cindy Jo Mobley of Hartland, Michigan passed away on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at the age of 63.

Cindy Jo Mobley was born in Flint Michigan to Lloyd Austin Young II and Joanne Carol Edmonds. Cindy moved 27 times during her school years and lived in seven states. She eventually settled in Kettering, Ohio, where she met her husband (Larry) and graduated from Fairmont East High School in 1976. Cindy quickly assimilated to life in Kettering, and into the Mobley family. While in Kettering, she participated in the Holiday at Home pageant at the urging of friends and family. After graduation, she married her high school sweetheart on October 30, 1976. Her love of travel led the newly married couple to move to Florida where they could enjoy the weather and weekend trips to the beach.

In 1978, Cindy and Larry returned to the midwest, moving to Michigan to be closer to family and start their own family as they welcomed their first son in August of 1978. Soon after another son followed in 1979 as the couple built a life through hard work and tight bonds with a close group of friends and frequent trips to visit family within a four-hour drive. Cindy always valued her family and spent many nights working to help support her new family and ensure that her children and friends knew her home would always be welcoming and full of love, but not always gadgets.

Cindy prioritized family, new experiences, and spending time together. Her love of travel and her family resulted in annual trips to Florida in the Spring, Summer trips to see the country that she loved, and camping trips to Waldenwoods in Hartland nearly every weekend. Cindy loved camping so much that the Mobley family would continue to camp in the Michigan winters, while everyone else in the region planned trips to the Gulf of Mexico. Cindy was not the outdoor type, she did not enjoy fishing, cooking outside, or bugs. She loved the nights with friends and family around the fire fellowshiping. The only thing that slowed family trips was when her boys entered high school and began playing sports, which restricted her ability to travel, but opened a new opportunity to spend time together and grow lifelong friendships.

She loved her boys and the things that interested her family. When Jeff and Chip entered South Lyon High School, football was the sport both boys pursued. She was concerned with the physical nature, but would never deny her boys a chance to excel at their passion. Cindy became the biggest South Lyon Lions supporter and threw herself into the fervor of football in South Lyon. She loved decorating the town on game days, the locker room on nights before the game, and leaving bows around the old KVC after South Lyon road wins. She forged life-long friendships with other parents that shared the common experience of loving their sons while enjoying the experience of life. Cindy's football life took a turn over the past five-years, she has shifted her allegiance and become the biggest Milford Maverick football supporter. She only missed one game in the past five-years. She had to be at those games, she had a son on the sideline. Cindy was always fascinated by the things that interested her family. She transitioned from a mom in 1994 that asked why her son that played offensive tackle was penalized when he tackled someone to the mother that questioned play calls and offered strategy advice in 2021.

Cindy looked forward to welcoming daughter's into her family, much like the Mobley family had welcomed her. She was happy to hear a female voice call out "mom" the first time it happened. She beamed because the family that she so loved expanded. As a Mom of only boys she loved welcoming daughters into the family and the new experience that created. She loved her daughters as her own and would protect or defend her daughters against anyone.

Cindy took advantage of her empty-nest status to begin traveling the country with Larry and their dogs. Seeing the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains, Texas, and most of the United States while visiting family. The common theme remains traveling with, or to see, the people she loved. She always wanted to live in a log cabin and see all the lighthouses. She achieved her log cabin dream when she and Larry moved to Tennessee. Cindy chose Tennessee because it was halfway between her grandchildren in Michigan in Florida. She still wanted to travel, but she knew she wanted to see her grandkids as much as possible.

She saw countless dance recitals, theatrical performances, volleyball games, and lacrosse matches over the past 21 years. Cindy loved her grandkids, she saw their games, but invested time in the growth and development of those young girls and boy. Going to see grandma meant hours of board games, cards, puzzles, drawings, or any other activity that the kids decided they wanted to do with grandma. Grandma's house also meant wholesome movies that she would play until you also loved them, uplifting music that nourished the soul, and baking cookies that grandpa could not eat. She cherished her grandkids, she traveled hours to see as much of a game or performance as possible, and contributed to every fundraising drive that a team, theater group, or organization that her grandchildren participated in.

Cindy loved her family. But her greatest love in this life was her relationship with Jesus. She rediscovered Jesus in 1997 when passing a church. Since that time, Cindy has been a light to her family leading them back to the love of God. She prayed daily for her family and friends, maintaining prayer books for her sons and their wifes, as well as an individual book for each grandchild where she would pray for their lives and salvation. Cindy participated in multiple bible studies with women across the country and willingly shared her faith. But she believed it more important to demonstrate her love through actions in her day-to-day life. She shared the love of Jesus with her grandchildren, and the hope and peace that death can bring to the point that they were scared to die. Grandma would then spend the time talking to her grandchildren about heaven, the love of Jesus, and the eternal life they could experience. She would use the Bible to explain Heaven and comfort them about how there would be only happiness when we get there.

Cindy loved people. She leaves a legacy of love, selflessness, and sacrifice. Cindy's family mourns her loss and will miss her smile, embrace, and corny made-up songs to cheer you up. But they know that she is in the hands of God and their pain and sorrow is only of this world. She has moved to a place where there is no sorrow, no pain, only happiness and glory.

Beloved wife of Larry for 45 years. Loving mother of Jeff (Heather) and Chip (Heather). Proud grandmother of Olivia (fiancé Ryan Stults), Hannah, Chloe, Dakota, and Jackson. Dear sister of Greg Young (Bev), Ron Young (Christa), the late Jeff Young and the late Vicki Vincent (Mason).
