Cynthia “Cyndee” May VanCuren (1957-2019)


Cynthia “Cyndee” May VanCuren peacefully passed away on Sunday, July 21, 2019 at the age of 61, at her home in Colusa, California.  Since her birth on October 6, 1957 in Colusa, California, she lived a life in many places sharing love, happiness, faith, and joy with many she held dear.  Among those, she treasured most her husband, Larry VanCuren whom she is now celebrating eternal life.  Others who preceded her are her sweet baby boy, Rodney Wren, her eldest brother, Rodney Huson; Father, Cletus Huson; Stepfather, Perry Bonnett; and Mother, Virginia Bonnett.  

Her love and memories will continue to live on in many that she loved dearly including brothers: Floyd Huson, Wesley (Debbie) Huson; sister Betty Huson; children: Amy Martin and Aron VanCuren, grandchildren: Anthony Martin, Allyssa Martin, Alana Martin, Lacey VanCuren, Jacob VanCuren, Rosalie VanCuren, Opal VanCuren; great grandchildren: Braelynn and Regan.  Although she immensely loved her all her nieces and nephews: Lucas Huson, Jeremias Huson, Allyssa Smith, Brandon Smith, and Zachary Smith, she had a special, parental bond with Ashlee (Samie) Gutierrez and Megan Huson; and loved and enjoyed her great nieces and nephew, among the closest was Alexa Velazquez.     

Whether Cyndee was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother, bartender, truck driver, certified nursing assistant, medical assistant, foster parent, club member, neighbor or friend, she brought love, laughter, and a bit of mischief to others lives.  She always strived to make sure others were happy, healthy, and know someone truly cared.  

As per Cyndee’s request, there will be no services and arrangements have been made through McNary-Moore Funeral Services, Colusa.  Cyndee would prefer that each of you that knew her share kindness, concern, and most of all love with others than to mourn her death.  You do not have to be defined by your past; you can choose and life to live who you wish to be.  Let kindness and love live through you. ■
