Cindy was born in Breckenridge, MN, on June 15, 1957, the daughter of Vernon and Joann (Lehman) Gronwold. She attended school in Tintah, MN. Following her formal education, she worked various jobs in the Breckenridge/Wahpeton community- mostly as a bookkeeper and bartender. Cindy was a tenacious worker with a friendly, compassionate spirit, who valued her family and friends.
