Cynthia Sheren (Stirling) Scott

Only stage-four colon cancer could slow Cynthia Sheren (Stirling) Scott down in her life full of family, friends, and FEMA adventures.

After a two-year, hard-fought battle, she passed away Wednesday, March 3, 2021, in Boise, ID, surrounded by her children and the prayers of many family and friends far and wide.

A Celebration of Life to honor Cyndi will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, March 27, 2021, at the United Methodist Church in Highmore, SD, with Pastor Kippy Udehn officiating. For those unable to attend, the service will be livestreamed on the funeral home’s website. A lunch will be provided directly after the service.
