Cynthia Fort

November 14, 1959 — August 26, 2023

Winona

Cynthia Marie Fort, 63 of Winona, died Saturday, August 26, 2023 at her home with her family by her side.

Cindy was born November 14, 1959 in Winona to William and Eunice (Dhein) Stevens.  She graduated from Winona Senior High School and Winona VoTech with a degree in Horticulture.  On May 27, 1979, she married Gary Fort at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Winona.  Cindy worked at the Winona Daily News for several years and most recently was a realtor with Edina Realty.  Cindy was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Ridgeway.

Her meticulous gardens were her pride and joy.  She also enjoyed feeding and attracting several species of birds, all which she could name; as well as spinning, rendezvousing and quilting.  However, being a grandma was second to none and she treasured the times spent with her granddaughters.

She is survived by her husband, Gary; son, Ben (Megan) Fort of Plainview; daughter, Megan (Nate) Mraz of Lewiston; and two granddaughters, Lorali and Audrei Fort.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Memorial Service will be 2 p.m., Thursday, August 31, 2023 at Hoff Celebration of Life Center – Goodview with the Reverend Jason Threlkeld officiating.  Visitation will be 12 p.m., until the time of the service.  She will be laid to rest at Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
