Cinda was born to Jack and Sonna Hart, Nov. 17, 1953, in Danville, IL. As a child, Cinda lived in Olivet among many close relatives and where her lifelong friends were made. She graduated from Georgetown High School in 1972 and went on to earn her BA in education from Eastern Illinois University. She is survived by her husband Steven P. Johnson, whom she married in 1998. They lived in Georgetown where both were teachers until their retirements. Steve was her devoted caregiver for several years-- tending to her every need, devoted to her beyond measure.
Cinda was a dedicated elementary-school teacher, an avid gardener, and world traveler. Until her retirement, she taught third and fifth grades in Georgetown Schools. In her leisure time, she cared for her lovely backyard garden. She and Steve traveled widely, taking 15 cruises to 20 foreign countries. Some of her other interests included reading, collecting antiques, nurturing her beloved cats and beagle, Maggie, and enjoying nature walks at Forest Glen.
She was a courageous, strong and kind woman.
Cinda is survived by two step-children: Nathan Johnson (Myla) of Saipan and Amy Streuer of Covington ,IN, two grandchildren, Ethan and Addison Streuer.
