Cynthia “Cindy” Herrick, 63, passed away in her home on (Thursday) Sept. 16, 2021. She was born in Bristol on November 30, 1957 to the late Natalie (Drost) and Wallace Bosse. 

Cynthia had a large family who loved and cherished her. If you knew Cindy, you would know she was definitely a family person. Cindy worked for a number of years at Quinoco Oil Company, as well as a teller at Webster Bank. She had quite the green thumb and loved planting and gardening; so much so, she owned and operated Colonial Nursery. In 2010, her best friend and husband Roger sadly passed.

Cindy is survived by two of her three children: Gary Parker of Plantsville, and Sonia Matthews of Hartford; her two step-sons, Robert Herrick and his wife Courtney, and Scott Herrick; her siblings: Dan Bosse and his wife Valerie of Bristol, Linda Belden and her husband David of Houston, Texas, Jackie Centrella and her husband Sam of Winsted, Joan Conlon and her husband Jim of Bristol, and Dorothy Gager and her husband Anthony of Houston, Texas. She also leaves behind her seven grandchildren, who were such a big part of her life: Felisha, Michael, McKenna, and Sean Matthews, Ariana Audi, and Luke and Brianna Parker; her two great-grandchildren who she took care of and adored, Mileena Matthews and Ava King; and also her beloved K9 companion Deazle.

In addition to her parents and husband, Cindy is predeceased by her daughter Melissa Parker.

She will be missed by her entire family who cared so deeply for her, and they will continue to talk of all the fun memories and amazing things about Cindy. As they mourn her death, they will always remember her beautiful personality and heart.

Calling hours will be held from 9-11a.m. on (Saturday) Sept. 25, 2021 at Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, who has the honor of serving Cindy’s family. At the request of her family, masks are required. Burial next to her beloved husband and father will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, 522 Terryville Ave., Bristol.

A Celebration of Life will be held immediately afterwards at the American Legion, 245 Main St, Terryville. To visit Cindy’s memorial website please visit
