Aunty Sindy was as a wonderful lady.

My Grandma (Ms Daisy) and her were good friends from Jamaica - England and were more like family than friends.

A sun filled day to celebrate a beautiful life.

Mother Cindy I will miss you. I’ll miss your humour, that look that says don’t try it , your words of encouragement and your testimonies reminding me of the goodness of God.

I take comfort however, knowing that you are in a better place in safe hands.

Rest well with the 2 loves of your life (Mr R Francis and your Lord and saviour Jesus Christ) until the trumpet of God sounds

To the sons (the apple of your mothers eye), be strong in the Lord knowing that prayers are always going out for you and the entire family .

I did not know Mum Cindy personally, but Horace, Marsha, Ethan and Cameron have been an important part of my life for many years, and I know how loved and cherished Mum Cindy has been, and how deeply missed she will be.

To the family and friends of the late sister Cindy Francis, I have known sister Cindy for over 20 years. She was a quite going sister of mine in the Lord, I cannot recall seeing her talking to anyone for long period of time. Sometimes when church services is finished, she would respectfully and calmly come over to me and talk with me briefly about her illness and late husband.
She would hardly stop long in church when services was over. she was respectfull and considerate. She would Sometimes remind me. "IS BISHOP BROWN AND YOU BAPTISED ME"! She was a true child of God and sister of mine in the Lord. I want to let you know ,death is not the end of sister Cindy, death is not her termination but a transition into eternity. For the Christians death is a door into eternity rather than been the end of life. It will be her birthday into eternal life.
Measured against eternity our time on earth is a blink of an eye. The Bible offers three metafors that teaches us God's view of life. Life is a test, a trust and a temporary assignment. Sister Cindy finished them all. And God has called her home to rest.
Sleep sister Cindy, sleep and take your rest.
Pastor Ricketts

I didn't know Mrs Francis personally but only through her sons, and especially Clive. From this alone I know that the family she stood as matriarch of are a testament to what an incredible woman she so obviously was. May she rest in eternal peace and her legacy continue strongly through the loving family she left behind x

I looked and I stared at this blank page,
Searching my heart for what to say..
Sadly, Aunty you have left us all behind,
But with moments and memories of a very special kind.
All of us, in some way, connected to you,
Because only you could do things so uniquely you.
A woman of style and grace that was second to none.
A spirit filled, God fearing woman who has now gone home.

Rest in eternal peace Aunty C.

My heartfelt sympathies to you all. It seems hard to believe this is the phase we are now at in our lives where we say goodbye to our parents, especially when it only seems 5 minutes ago we were racing round the park on our bikes as kids. I hold in my memory a fine figure of a woman, proud and classy. I hope you all take some comfort in knowing she is now with Dad again. Love from the Kyprianou family x

Dear Horace, Clive & Warren,

There is not a great deal more that we can say about Mum that has not already been said.

We knew her as a women of class, who always carried herself with dignity and grace. She had a strong presence and a sense of humour that gifted us with many laughs over the years.

Your Mother was such a special lady who we will truly miss.

Our love and deepest sympathies go out to you and all of your families.

Tribute from Auntie Peggy
I have known Cindy Francis for 59 yrs. A gentle, loving, kind, caring person with a heart of pure love that epitonises humility and empathy are just a few words that describes Cindy Francis. She has left an indelible set of footprints on the hearts of her family, friends, associates and anyone who knew her.
Cindy Francis legacy will always be remembered in her children, Horace, to whom i am a godmother, Clive and Warren. We are consoled by the fact that so much of her admirable traits have been passed on to her "boys" as she living called them. Cindy loved her children with a passion abd instilled in them the value of life.
Perhaps out of the endless memories, is one that will always shine out; is when she had her first child. She was in her element and told me that she can't wait for others to follow. Cindy was an honorarable well respected woman, and her values were reflected in her commitment to servicing her church, Wood Green New Testament Church of God.
Cindy your death has been a struggle for me. In fact it's a "double whammy" to lose a husband and a friend within 3 months of each other, it's not easy. Not easy!
I quote from a writer the following words: "don't think of her as gone away her journey has just begun. Life holds so many faucets, this earth is just one if them. And think of as living in the hearts of those she touched. For nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much".
End of quote
Cindy Francis has fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.
I take this opportunity to offer condolences to Horace, Clive and Warren and other members of the extended family.
Cindy my friend, walk good. Rest in sweet eternal peace. Your friend Peggy Shippey.

Aunty C, you are one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. You always made me feel welcome and your vibe was always positive. I’ll miss your sense of humour and kind nature. I wish I could’ve said goodbye, but it comforts me to know you’re Resting In Peace.

Sending love Warren, Clive, Horace & families. xx

Dear Aunty Cindy,

You were an exceptional lady who welcomed me with open arms and love. I remember you having a great sense of humour especially when the boys played pranks on their cousins. You would always rescue them with hugs and kisses. The girls and I loved spending time with you. You supported me and gave me advice when I was at my lowest without judgement. You were an inspiration to me and the girl’s.

RIP love you Aunty Cindy, Mellodie xxx

I will miss you Sister Cindy. You always had a way of stopping me in my tracks with a stare and I knew I had to make my way back to you, to say hello. My only regret is that I did not say hello more often. We had such a lovely chat in September, a beautiful sunny Sunday and you were all co-ordinated, looking lovely as ever. You were a kind and generous lady. Always happy and enthusiastic for God and His work. I enjoyed the time you came with us on the Spiritual MOT Weekend. You just needed reassuring that you would be able to keep up and of course you did. You said your legs were healed following that weekend. I know you loved the presence of God and I know He did something special for you that weekend. You are now in Gods presence enjoying heavens rewards. Well done Sister Cindy. You have been a blessing to all at COP.

I send my sincere Condolences and Love to sister Cindy’s sons and extended family. You are in my prayers. God bless and comfort your hearts

Heaven rejoices as she enters the Pearly Gates to meet her maker.

My deepest sympathy,

Sincere condolences, Horace, Clive and Warren.

Cindy was a remarkable woman; she was astute, sharp and witty. Having lost our own mother in 2011, Marsha was fortunate enough to still have a mother whom she adored.

Cindy did not mince her words; she gave it to you straight. That was her beauty, you knew exactly what was on her mind. She had a way of speaking her truth which often left me in a fit of giggles. Boys take comfort in the fact that you were raised by a rare diamond; you are all a testament to her love and devotion.

May she rest in perfect peace.

Lots of love, Cris and Dom xx

her Life
Cindy Veronica Francis
Born in St Catherine, Jamaica to Audley Cummings & Rosie Davies, Cindy was one of 4 children; Daniel as well as the late Joel and Agatha being her siblings. Sadly Rosie died when Cindy was only 10 years old and was subsequently brought up by her Grand Aunt Ambrozene McDonald.
Cinderella came to the UK in 1961 when her own Prince Charming Ridley ‘sent for her’ to come and join him after he had ‘got things set up’ and had enough saved for her passage. They married on 7 July 1962 vowing to save enough money together and return to Jamaica. Something they never did as they built a family and a home in Wood Green, which they jointly decided was where they wanted to remain.
Cindy did a variety of jobs ranging from ‘piece work’ in a local factory to what she affectionately described as her favourite and final job as a care assistant in Friern Barnet psychiatric hospital.
Cindy is survived by her brother Daniel, 3 sons Horace, Clive & Warren, 4 grandsons Ethan, Christian, Cameron & Joshua, hundreds of family and friends and thousands of wonderful memories.
As a wife she was loving and caring. A woman that would always back her husband even if it meant “straightening things out” behind closed doors. In fact, her sons cannot remember one occasion where mum and dad argued with each other. She was a Godfearing woman, and would always use the teachings of the bible to guide her through any challenges they faced together.
As a mother she instilled in her sons the difference between right and wrong from an early age. She also taught her sons the value of hard work and aiming to achieve the right things in a humble manner, often quoting “When Eskimo have money him buy fridge”.
As her sons grew, she listened more (and I must add – moaned less about us ☺). Her methods for upbringing became less directive and more consultative thus evolving from being the sometimes feared mum, when we strayed, to that loving friend who we would go to when we needed advice from someone that had decades more life experience than us.
Mind you, even when her sons had grown up and started families of their own she still had the knack of reminding us who was in charge with the famous stare and a sharp comment which just cut straight to the point.
So Mum, you know we will love you forever in the same way you have shown us unconditional love. We will treasure every beautiful memory of our time together. Rest in peace, we know you are safe and happy at the Lords’ side.

Horace, Clive and Warren on behalf of my mum Florrett, Pauline along with the Clarke family we send our heartfelt condolences and prayers for your loss. Your mum always gave time with wise words to everyone and remained strong in her faith along with her love for you all. Our families have been connected as friends for over 50 years starting out as neighbours in the days where friends could support each other and share experiences with many happy memories. The times I spent at your house as a child (temporary proxy big sister to you) was an education, inspiration and created my understanding of true FAMILY UNITY. Your mum and dad taught me so many life lessons through all the decades (my lips are sealed) and my mum is missing their conversations terribly. Continue the Francis family legacy as your mum and dad are together now watching you all with pride. Cindy Francis RIEP
