Meet our Blog Writer, Cindy Sheerer!

A retired English teacher, Cindy now enjoys her summers at the lake and especially enjoys her winters in Cape Coral, Florida. While at home, she loves spending time with family. She is the mother of 4 children and GiGi to 8 grandchildren. She also spends time with her husband, Larry’s two boys and his six grandchildren in Michigan. With whatever free time she has left, she plays pickleball, teaches water aerobics, works-out, visits with friends, and tends to her lawn and flowers. If she could have had any career, she would have been a talk show host. She loves to tell stories and to read and eventually would like to write her own story one day.
