Cynthia DeBord Weigel was born Cynthia Lou DeBord in Marion, Virginia on August 4, 1952, the third and youngest daughter of the late Woodrow and Vera DeBord. She attended elementary and high school in Rich Valley, Virginia and graduated in 1970. Some of her favorite memories of RVHS were those of playing trombone and being a majorette in the Steer Band, and she often talked about doing a science project with her lifelong pal Junebug Carter about the science of shooting pool. Back in the days when she was playing a lot, she could clear a pool table before you got started. She attended the University of Tennessee, graduating with high honors in 1974 and establishing a lifelong love of Volunteer football. She was a member of Alpha Xi Delta sorority and Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society. After graduation from UT, she worked for Virginia Department of Social Services until her marriage to Roger Weigel in 1976 and beginning their life together in Atlanta. She began to work in advertising and marketing until her most important job and all-time favorite work began in December 1983 with the birth of her son, Ryan Blake Weigel. Daughter Emily Grace Weigel was born in September 1987, and being the mother of these two children was the most beloved part of her life. She strived to raise healthy, well educated, principled and caring children who could follow their own paths in life, and she was absolutely convinced that she had done so. Her enthusiasm for all their sports or music activities when they were younger is legendary. Never did youth baseball or soccer have a better advocate or bigger fan. There was never a complaint about trying to wrangle a cello in a case into the back seat of a two door car. Chirping crickets all over the house because a science project was in progress was music to her ears. Her family and their wellbeing were her mission in life. When they were grown with families of their own, she got to be Nana for a little while enjoying her four grandchildren.

Cindi is survived by her son Ryan and daughter-in-law Kelsey, daughter Emily and son-in-law Philip, best friend and former husband, Roger Weigel, sisters Carol and Carla, beloved grandchildren Charles, Patience, Charlotte and Christian, and many sorority sisters and lifelong friends.

Cindi was an ardent supporter of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and often gave a memorial donation to honor a deceased friend or relative. Without a doubt, she would be pleased if you should be inclined to contribute to their mission in her memory.
