Cynthia K. Rieger, 67, Grand Forks, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 22, 2019 at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks.
Cynthia Katherine Schneider, the daughter of Anton and Angeline (Hoffart) Schneider, was born on October 7, 1952 in Rugby, North Dakota. She attended school in Selz, North Dakota and was a member of the first class to graduate from the newly constructed school in Harvey, North Dakota. After graduation she took art classes by correspondence. On November 6, 1970, Cyndi married Ronald Rieger in Selz, North Dakota. They lived in Esmond, ND, and Selz, ND before moving to Grand Forks, ND in the spring of 1971. She worked at Northwest Mutual Insurance as an underwriter. Cyndi later provided daycare in her
home for many families before she decided to work full time as the office manager for Ron’s Electric and later RBB Electric in Grand Forks.
Cyndi and Ron enjoyed dividing their time between their homes in Grand Forks, Arizona, and White Earth Lake. Together Cyndi and Ron loved traveling to many places including Maine and a railway trip through Canada. While traveling they were always excited to try out new restaurants and shops. Baking and gardening were hobbies of Cyndi’s that always seemed to keep her family and friends well fed. She played cards every Monday with a great group of friends. Her favorite show was the Voice which she never missed along with Wheel of For-tune. Above all she loved spending time with and watching her grandkids in
any activity they had.
