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.


  1. I worked with Cindee at Ryder. We kept in touch over the years and she had a huge impact on my life. I am so saddened to hear of her passing, she truly was a light in the world and will be very very missed.

  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.

  6. Cindee, there are no words that can be spoken of how much she was loved. A strong person who was there when you needed her most. She helped me get through my cancer almost 30 years ago. I will miss her truly

  8. I met Cindee when she became my manager at Pier 1. What a breath of fresh air to work with someone my own age! We became great friends. She made me laugh every day! She will be truly missed! May her family and friends feel God’s presence during this difficult time.

  9. I met Cindee some a few years back at Ryder Logistics. Always smiling and always vey very positive. Every year it was nearing time for “The Game” she’d shoot me a message and share a little trash talk (because she knew I’m a Michigan fan). But Cindee was so nice, it barely even felt like trash talk. Just 2 sports fans who can’t wait to see their teams face-off. I think about you all the time, Cindee. My heart goes out to your family. Until we meet again…

  10. I miss you buddy!

  11. I met Cindee when she came to Ryder. I left a year after starting but I kept in touch with her. Unfortunately I lost touch with her and randomly thought of her today. I looked her name up and my heart is broken now. Cindee was my buddy. I loved her, her shrimp bread and our petty back and forth banter at work. She is the BEST supervisor I ever had and that title will never go to anyone else. I pray she is finally at rest and I will miss her. RIP my love 😍
