She was born April 8, 1953, in Columbia, and graduated from Liberty High School in 1971. She was happily married to Dick Schaffner for 28 years until his passing in 2002. Together they owned and operated Dick’s Imports and Aluminum Head Service in Belton.

After retirement, she enjoyed volunteering with the Belton School District and spending time with her family.

In addition to her husband, Cindy was preceded in death by her mother, Arlys Pitts; father, Bruce Peterson; and three brothers Arnold, Donald and Kenneth Peterson.

She is survived by her son, Scott (Cathy); daughter, Tracy Goodall; brother, Ronald Peterson; sister, Kathleen Hale; and five grandchildren, Taylor (Curtis) and Scott Schaffner Jr, Bryce, Bayler and Brinkley Goodall.

Cindy was recently awarded the Pirate Pride Community Partner Award and the first official “Nanday” was declared at Cambridge Elementary School in Belton for her contributions to the community.

In lieu of flowers and donations, we ask that you give back by volunteering your time and donating blood. A private burial and celebration of life will take place at a later date.
