In Memory of Cynthia Siegel

Cynthia Lynne “Cindy” Siegel, age 73 of Hudson, passed away on November 4, 2020 at Comforts of Home in River Falls. Cindy was born on October 17, 1947 in Stillwater, Minnesota to Paul and Mavis (Johnson) Siegel. She grew up in Hudson and graduated from Hudson High School in 1965. Cindy had a wonderful sense of humor and was known by one group of friends as the ‘Goddess of mirth and joviality’. Cindy worked a long and rewarding career at 3M. She held several different positions. In 1989, she had an aneurysm that affected her the rest of her life. However, with her positive attitude, she continued to work at 3M as a receptionist until her retirement.

She enjoyed traveling with her family to Arizona, the east coast, and especially enjoyed shopping while vacationing in Mexico. Prior to her aneurysm, Cindy was fond of sewing and was a skilled seamstress.

Cindy will remain in the hearts of her mother, Mavis Siegel; siblings, Paula Randall of River Falls, Ronald “Rick” (Joan) Siegel of Winter Springs, FL, and Gina Nilsen of Ellsworth; nephew and niece, Brian (Jill) Siegel and Kate (Steve) Odom. She is preceded in death by her father; and brother-in-law, Jon Nilsen.

A private funeral will be held to celebrate Cindy’s life at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Hudson. Interment at Willow River Cemetery. Memorials and cards for the family may be sent to O’Connell Family Funeral Home: Care of Cindy Siegel Family, 520 S. 11th St., Hudson, WI 54016, to be forwarded on your behalf.

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • My condolences to all of you. I remember Cindy fondly. When we were in high school, she was always friendly. Years later, it was nice to occasionally run into her at 3M. And after that, I was able to chat with her a few times at CCH. I always admired her strength and perseverance…she was a strong lady! Hoping good memories will help you through.

    • Sending our sympathy to the family.. Oh how we will miss Cindy, had many good times. I will never make doughnuts without thinking of her. So long my dear friend and cousin! Sending love from Tom and Kathleen.

    • Our condolences to the family. We know Cindy will be greatly missed. She was in my confirmation class at Bethel Lutheran Church in Hudson, and we graduated together from Hudson High School. What a pleasant surprise when I married her cousin and we became cousins-in-law!

      I enjoyed the many birthday celebrations with the “girls” in the family over the years. Cindy was so helpful to my mother-in-law, Marian, and she took her to get her groceries when she couldn’t drive anymore. I have great memories of Cindy, Mavis and Penny when they would travel to Arizona to stay with Marian, who had a vacation home 5 miles from ours. We had a great time getting together and sharing meals.

      Cindy had a great sense of humor and she had a great love for children.
      She beat us into Heaven, but we will see her again one day.

      With deepest sympathy,

      Vicki and TImothy Hieb
