My heartfelt condolences to the family – I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up near Cindy in Latonia and we attended Holy Cross together. I moved away and did not know Cindy as an adult. But I remember her as a very real person, alive and full of life. She was also very pretty and sweet and once told me I had pretty eyes. For a shy and insecure boy that meant a lot and have appreciated that moment of kindness ever since! Thank you Cindy for giving so much to life.
We were sadened to hear of the passing of Cindy Gayle Terlau Koenig. She was one of “the girls” from Holy Cross. She will be missed. She added her something special to any gathering. To Shannon, Scott, Dave, Sue, Karen, Jim and your families, we extend our heartfelt condolences. She blessed us all with a lifetime of memories and laughter. Take comfort that her suffering is passed and she will always be with you.
Dear Scott,Shannon, & all loved ones,
I can’t begin to tell you all how much your loss of Cindy is shared. I too lost my mom too this year and there’s “nobody else like either one of them”. I always loved Cindys’…since of humor…none other like it. I’ve known her since the seventh grade and it always put joy and fun in my heart to be with her. Her presence will always be there, but highly missed. I enjoyed her so much…Lloyds Roller Rink, Rosedale Pool, high school, girls parties, sons high school and baseball games, grandchildren football games, and just passing by her home as I do everyday…the loneliness will always be felt. The last time I saw Cindy, in the middle of October she was still laughing and hoping for better health.]
She was so blessed to have such wonderful children and family.
Due to circumstances out of my control and the weather (I can only imagine what she would be saying about that), Ryan and I feel so so sorry we couldn’t be with you at her funeral.
Please know you are all in our thoughts, prayers, and best memories.
All my love,
I have known Cindy since I was in the first grade and every single time I saw her we had a laugh together. She was like the team mom for our Hut AC baseball team even though she was only a few years older than the players. Cindy will never be forgotten. A classy fun lady. I regret not being in town for the funeral but my sincere condolences to the family.
Scott and Shannon, Lisa and I send our deepest condolences to your family along with our parents. I’ll never forget the many, many laughs we all shared over the years along with the countless stories. Your mom was truly a wonderful person! God Bless.
Scott and Shannon… so sorry for your loss. I felt like I really got to know your mom working with her at TMC. I’m so glad for that time. She will be missed. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Members of the Koenig Family,
It has been my pleasure to know Cindy and to work with her at HUC-JIR over these many years. She was always warm, gracious, helpful and cheerful. I am sorry that as I assume the Presidency of HUC-JIR January 1, hre smiling face will not greet me on the days that I will spend in Cincinnati.
May God grant you all peace and comfort as you mourn your beloved Cindy,
Rabbi Aaron Panken, President-Elect, HUC-JIR
Shannon & Scott, Sorry for the loss of your mom. Deepest sympathy and prayers to you and your families during this difficult time.
Scott and Shannon, I am truly heartbroken for you. Your mother was always a ray of sunshine to us growing up. I was just telling my kids how much fun we use to have calling our friends out for play “OH” Scott “OH” Shannon can you come out to play? They looked at me like I was crazy! But boy those were the days! Your mother always made Kathy and I feel like family. Love to you both! Nancy
Dear Shannon & Family, My prayers are with you as you grief your Mother’s passing. May you be consoled with the thought and faith that Cindy is in the arms of our loving God.
Shannon, Scott and Jimmy,
We are very sorry for you on the death of your mother/sister.
She was a great person and will be missed by many, Mary Lou and I are two. Each of you and Cindy are in our prayers.
Russ and Mary Lou
I met Cindy for the first time in the 70’s when she visited her sister, Sue, who lived in Ohio at the time. I loved her the moment I met her. Never have I met anyone infused with such joy and exuberance and who could find hilarity in any given situation. That is a rare quality and Cindy possessed it. She will be missed by everyone whose life she touched!
Scott, Shannon, & Families,
We are truly sorry for your loss. Cindy was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed.
The Coleman Family

To the entire Koenig family, my sincere condolances. Cindy was such a joy to work with at Thomas More; she put up a good fight till the end. Now we have another angel in heaven watching over us.
To the Koenig Family,
It was a pleasure working with Cindy. Every time we spoke, she made my day that much better.
I know she was incredibly proud of all of you, and I’m sure that you are of her as well.
Thinking of all of you,
Cindy was such a RAY OF SUNSHINE!
May the Lord give you peace, comfort, and even joy during this time of loss. I’m sure that Cindy showered her family with love, smiles, and hugs while she graced you all with her presence.
She may be gone in body, but her spirit lives on within each of you.
I am honored to have known of such a strong, sweet person, even if the time was rather brief.
May the Lord bless you all abundantly,
I worked with Cindy here at Hebrew Union College for seven years. She was not in my department, but I had many occasions to speak with a her. She was always a lovely, funny, smart, professional and classy lady. It will be a big loss to our campus.
