CANFIELD, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Cindy L. Sciarra, 62, of Canfield, passed away on Monday, April 10, 2023, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Youngstown.

Born April 29, 1960 in East Liverpool, Ohio, Cindy was the daughter of William and Gloria (Foster) Brown.

Cindy was a 1978 graduate of East Liverpool City High School.

Early in life, she was a ballroom dance instructor in the Boardman area and she continued to have a passion for dancing long after, whether it was at a wedding or in the aisle of a grocery store. She later became a clerk at West Side Merchants License Bureau and a senior tax advisor at H&R Block, where she gained a loyal following of clients and cultivated friendships lasting decades.

Cindy was a wonderful friend, sister, mother and nana. She loved her family but especially doted on her grandkids. She loved to bake cookies during the holidays and send them to everyone she loved. Her clothespin and buckeye cookies were renowned.

Cindy leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Pat Sciarra; her sons, Brent (Anna) Stansbury and Adam (Gabriela Flowers) Stansbury; stepchildren, Michael (Christina Covert) Sciarra, Robert Sciarra and Stefanie Barrett; her grandchildren, Adele, Clara and Austin Stansbury; her siblings, William (Rose) Brown and Jeannie (Ron) Plummer and many nieces and nephews.
