Cindy Ann Smith
1955 - 2019
Cindy A. Smith, 64, of Findlay passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 24, 2019 at Blanchard Valley Hospital. She was born July 7, 1955 in Findlay to the late Harold (Hoke) R. and Shirley A.

Cindy graduated from Findlay High School in 1973. She worked at the Whirlpool Corporation for many years. Cindy was able to fulfill a life-long dream: she opened, owned, and operated the Howl-A-Day Inn, Inc. Doggie Day Care (in Findlay) for 14 years. She was a free spirit who loved attending Rolling Stones concerts, traveling, and riding her motorcycle. Most of all, she loved her friends and family (including all of her dogs and the dogs at HADI). The family would like to thank the Blanchard Valley Hospital ICU nurses and doctors for their care and kindness. Special thanks to Nurse Desa for her compassion and dedication. Arrangements have been entrusted to COLDREN-CRATES FUNERAL HOME. There will be no visitation or funeral service per Cindy's wishes.
