Cynthia (Tulowiecki) Sardella, 64, of West Monroe passed away peacefully December 6 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. Born in Syracuse, NY, she was the oldest of nine children and spent her earliest years wishing for a sister in a house filled with brothers. Her wish was granted twice and together she and her eight siblings forged an unbreakable bond that lasted the rest of her life. A graduate of Liverpool High School and Powelson Business Institute, she was a founding partner and Vice President of Human Resources of the logistics company, Mohawk Global, where she worked for 34 years.
A selfless child of God, devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, she was known for her open heart, warm smile, and compassionate ear. Her cheerful, melodious voice sang a song of faith, friendship, and the deepest love for all those around her. So strong was her love of life that she dedicated every moment to sharing her gift of infinite, vivacious joy. It radiated from her in every way imaginable, through her cooking, get-togethers, memorable poems, the stories she loved to tell and retell (like the time she touched Keith Urban’s hair during a concert), and her signature dance move—the “Cindy Snap”. Music was what moved her, especially country songs and tunes from the 60’s and 70’s. By far her greatest passion was spending time with her grandchildren, who she couldn’t get enough of.
She is pre-deceased by her loving husband, Ed Sardella; her parents, Stanley and Veronica (Czaja) Tulowiecki; and her brothers, Mike (Liese) and Anthony (Sue) Tulowiecki. She is survived by her three children, Michelle (Brent) Kelley, Danielle (Shawn Monroe) Lewis, and Alex Sardella; grandchildren Devin Lewis and Winter Monroe; brothers Pete (Terri), Paul, Stan (Val) and Andy (Wendy) Tulowiecki; sisters Theresa (Ed) Baker and Linda (Tim) Colwell; many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, friends, and her beloved dog, Georgia. Memorial services will be held at a later date.
