Cindee Lynn Copeland

Cindee Lynn Copeland, 61, of Clear Lake Tx, passed away surrounded by loved ones on January 22, 2023.

Cindee was born on March 22nd, 1961, to Cecil and Thelma Hess in Centerburg, OH.

Cindee was passionate about cooking, crafting, and an obsessive Ohio State Buckeyes fan.

Cindee was a fiercely dedicated mother to all her children, raising all 6 of them to go on and start families of their own.  Family came first and was above all else to her, a value she installed in all those around her.  The hole left by her absence will be impossible to fill.

Cindee was preceded in death by Father (Cecil Hess), Mother (Thelma Hess), and Sister (Darlene Hawkins).

Cindee is survived by her 6 children and 12 Grandchildren: Travis/Sheena Yoakam (Tinsley & Sevey), Kendra Lawless (Reese & Ryder), Casey/Mandy Lawless (Rylie & Jackson), Baili/Josh Bryson (Kaelynn, Paetynn, Haedynn, & Caesynn), Blayre Copeland (Kenli), and Kiernan Copeland (Kallum).

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to MD Anderson Cancer Research at the link provided below.

  2. Cindee Lynn Copeland was strong and beautiful. I never got to meet her but she created Kiernan so I know she was a wonderful lady. I’m so sorry for the Copelands family loss. I pray that they feel strength and heal throughout this difficult time. May she rest in peace and look down on her family from heaven smiling.

  3. I remember Cindee from school many years ago. I have heard for years that she fought this horrid disease for years. I remember she was always smiling. So sorry to her family and friends for her loss. I know there will be a huge void in your lives without her. But Cindee has her wings now and she is happy young and healthy. No more pain or sickness. She is now at Peace forever more.
