Rev. Cindy, as she preferred to be addressed, died peacefully in her sleep June 16 at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, Wyoming USA following a painful, lengthy illness.

Cynthia Ann was born Dec. 10, 1952 in Tulsa, Okla., USA to Marvin & Nancy Pleasant and raised and educated in California before entering the ministry.

She was called as the shared minister for Encampment/Saratoga Presbyterian Churches, Wyoming USA in January of 2003 and served until March of 2006. Upon leaving a settled ministry she continued to live in the Saratoga/Encampment area where she applied her clinical training in psychology with COVE retiring from active work after a series of heart attacks. She continued a worldwide pastoral and Intercessory prayer ministry from her bedroom by smartphone until she passed away.

She recently reflected, “I’ve gotten to do (and then some) all I dreamed about as a young person. I’ve seen 82 countries and lived and worked in five (USA, Switzerland, Canada, Guatemala, Australia); spent ten years teaching at college and graduate school levels; served as pastor of 20 churches (up to five at a time); been a Presbytery officer for 34 churches (Maya Quiche Presbytery, Guatemala) and a Synod consultant for 400 plus churches (Consultant for Evangelism & Renewal, South Australian Synod, Australia).”

Prior to her becoming a minister she was a waitress, school hall receptionist, geology and psychology lab assistant, camp counselor, and an intern clinical psychologist.

She earned AA degrees in geology and psychology with a minor in African Studies, plus received bachelor degrees in psychology and philosophy; a Master’s of Divinity and was named a Fellow of Pastoral Leadership Development while doing Doctoral Studies at Princeton University.

Cindy is survived by her husband, David; two sons, Jonathon and Emmanuel and his wife Jadyn; a grandson Barrett Lester; a sister Patti, and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews in both USA and Australia.

Recently, Rev. Cindy wrote, “I have had a full and rewarding life so please celebrate my life, hold onto that which is good and learn from any mistakes I made, Honor and Respect God and enjoy your life.”
