Cindy Marie Pitman, 24, passed away on December 13, 2015.
Drugs are no secret to anyone. Everyone knows what happens. But no one thinks it will happen to them, or they don't care because they have reached that point of no return, and they know they will go out in a pain free way. They just don't accept help, it always starts small, then your body reaches that point. She knew it, we knew it. Cindy was a college graduate and a Licensed Massage Therapist, drove a brand new car, worked two jobs, and her free time was spent cuddled up with her dogs or helping her friends in any way possible. She found a wrong path in life, and once she was on that path it took hold of her life. She knew she was better than this addiction. Cindy Lou was loud and outspoken, and a perfect friend.
She is survived by her mother, Kim (Jim) Bishop; father, Kenneth Pitman; sisters, Kayla Nagy, Baylee Bishop, Paige Vogus, Dakota Pitman and Taylor Poling; brothers, Tyler and Hunter Bishop, and Kenny Jr.; grandmother, Carol Finch; and many other relatives and friends.
Family will receive friends on Sunday, December 20, 2015 from 1 to 3 p.m., with the service immediately following at Newcomer Funeral Home, 131 N. Canton Rd., Akron, OH 44305. Everyone that has this addiction, wake up, put the needles down, and ask for help.
Pitsman was a graduate of Schnee Learning Center in Cuyahoga Falls and Stautzenberger College
