Cynthia Mays Peebles

October 26, 1959 — June 17, 2023

Cindy, our much loved mother, sister, doggie grandma, and friend, passed away on Saturday, June 17, 2023. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Ruth Howarth Mays, and John Mays on October 26, 1959. Cindy was a firecracker her whole life. Her signature laugh could be heard from a mile away. She enjoyed loud music and watching the Sound of Music at top volume while she went about her day. Cindy enjoyed the hospitality business, working at various hotels and car rental agencies; at one point even owning a hostel in the Avenues for wayward travelers. She found joy in making sure everyone she came across who was in need had a meal and a place to stay. She was an excellent cook and was always experimenting with new ingredients and recipes, much to the delight of those who were invited to dinner. Cindy spent some time as a young woman living in Hawaii where she learned that she loved the sun and sand before returning to Utah to settle down.

Cindy married Edward Franklin Peebles in 1988 and became a mother to her much beloved only son Zachariah in October of 1991. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Michael Mays. In addition to her son, she is survived by her two other siblings John and Patricia Mays, and many, many friends.

At Cindy's request there will be no funeral or other services.
