Cindy Kunz Thigpen reached her Heavenly home on November 19, 2018, atthe age of 68. Cindy, or as her grandchildren called her, Cissy, was born on October 3, 1950, in San Antonio, Texas.  She was the firstborn to Ralph and Mildred Kunz, and she was their tiny bundle of joy. 

Cindy was an avid football fan, an incredible cook, and had a personality that led her to never meet a stranger.   She graduated from Ross S. Sterling High School in 1968 and was a proud member of the Ross S. Sterling Stars.  One of her favorite memories was sharing the football field during her senior year with her little sister, Patti. 

She met and fell in love with her husband of 47 years, Harold Thigpen in 1971.  They settled in Highlands, Texas, where they have lived for 40 years.  They had two beautiful boys, and sports became the focus of their home for many years. In recent years, the grandchildren’s sporting events brought her untold joy. 

Cindy is survived by her precious parents, Ralph and Mildred Kunz; husband, Harold Thigpen; son and daughter-in-law, Marcus and DeeAnn Thigpen; son, Nathan Thigpen; grandchildren, Tillman Thigpen, Tanner Thigpen, Payton Thigpen, Cullen Thigpen, and Tucker Thigpen.  She is also survived by her loving sister and brother-in-law, Patti and Bart Albright; sister-in-law Diane Allen, and mother-in-law, Laverne Davidson.  Several nieces and nephews lovingly called her Cissy, as well.  

Honoring the family as pallbearers will be Scott Wilks, Russell Wilks, Adam Albright, Clay Kuykendall, Wesley Williams, and Allen Williams.
