Obituary of Cynthia Jean Bracken

Cynthia Jean Bracken gained her wings on March 3rd, 2023, in the comfort of her home in McGregor Minnesota at the age of 72. The family likes to say she was “promoted”.

Born on December 16, 1950, in St. Paul Minnesota she was the daughter of Claren and Lorraine Dorman.

Cindy was a loving Wife, Mother, Grandma, Great-Grandma (GG), Sister, and Friend.

She loved the outdoors. Gardening, and having a quiet fire with twigs collected from their woods. Crafting, writing, and sewing were a few of her favorite things. Steve and Cindy traveled to many amazing places. Sometimes just the two of them. They also enjoyed traveling with family and friends.

Of all things her heart was the sweetest part of her. She devoted all her love and attention to family and dear friends. Any interaction with this lovely woman was always guaranteed to be genuine and heartfelt.

Preceded in death by: Grandparents Lee and Mildred Hanson. Mother and Father Lorraine and Claren Dorman. Brothers Jack, Russel, (Twins) Ronald and Robert. Beloved son Gilbert.

Survived by: Husband Steven. Children Sherry (Rick) Peterson, William (Stacy) Rutherford, Tracy (David) Hoffrogge, Kenny (Kalya) Bracken. 16 beautiful Grandchildren. 10 precious Great Grandchildren.
