Cynthia Jean Olin came into this world December 6, 1952, and on that day this world became a better place. Cindy was born in Houston, TX to Wesley Charles Olin, Jr. and Elsie Ruth Olin, both of whom preceded her in death and we are certain greeted her with open and loving arms as she passed peacefully at her Somerville, TX home on March 12, 2019. Cindy is survived by her devoted partner and true love of 38 years, Karen Green; Daughter, Jamie Green Wilson and Granddaughter, Madeline Wilson; Brother, Douglas Olin and his wife Delores; Sisters, Sharon Auberry and her husband James, Aneisha Remsing and her partner Ray Ayers; Niece, Stormi Nugent and her partner Chad Glatfelter; Nephews, Shawn Auberry and wife Kc, Petty Officer First Class Bryan Remsing II and wife Chelsea, and nephew Eric Olin; numerous great-nephews, great-nieces, and friends whom she deeply loved and considered family.
Cindy was the hardest working person in any given room, she was a spitfire full of sass and truth and she wouldn’t hesitate to tell you right from wrong. She hated cancer and cursed it out a few times but she never once let it take her sense of humor because she was also a little stubborn in the best possible way and she wouldn’t let cancer take her humor too. She kept her family and friends laughing all the way. She would always tell you what you needed to hear, not what you wanted to hear, and you always knew it was out of love and that she was usually right. If something broke, she knew how to fix it and if she didn’t then she learned real fast. She loved being at the lake, fishing with friends, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, peanut M&Ms, a cold beer, Tina Turner, and was annoyingly lucky at any casino she entered. She was generous with her time and with her love. She didn’t just say she loved you, she showed you she loved you. Of all the things she loved in this world her family was the thing she loved most. She loved her friends and she loved her neighbors. She did not want anyone sitting around crying about her having to leave us too soon, or that life isn’t fair, because she’s not lost at all. She will always be with us when we laugh, and when we go fishing, when we pop open a cold beer after a day of hard work, when we get a lucky win at a casino, when we help out a friend in need, when we love unconditionally and find joy in the simplest of things. Cynthia Jean Olin was pure unselfish love and that love will forever be with those who were blessed to know her.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society in memory of Cynthia Jean Olin and as a way to also honor her nephew Bryan Remsing II who was an invaluable source of strength in our family’s most difficult time.
