Cynthia Lea Kent

Cynthia Lea Kent was born April 16 1952 in Oklahoma City. She was the first of three children of her parents Robert and Urna Lea Stover. She passed away on February 25, 2024.

 Cindy grew up in Claremore, O.K., where she attended Will Rogers Junior High School and graduated from Claremore High School in 1970. Being gregarious and good natured, she was elected "best liked" by her classmates, and was a member of the Pep Club. Cindy then attended Cottey College in Nevada MO and graduated with an Associate in Arts degree. 

 Cindy married Michael Robertson in 1972 at the Claremore First Presbyterian Church. They moved to Chicago where Cindy worked at an advertising agency. Their family grew with the arrival of their two boys, Scott and Matthew. 

Cindy later moved to California, where she earned her R.N. degree at Cerritos College in 1987. She began working as a surgical nurse, There is where she met Brian Kent at La Veta Surgery Center in Orange CA. Cindy later decided to go back to school for her bachelor's degree. Despite working full time, and recovering from a fractured hip, she successfully earned her B.S. in Health Science in 2001. Cindy was a mentor and an inspiration for her younger classmates. 

Cindy loved her Ford Mustangs, her dogs, and an avid runner. Her favorite run was the annual Mud Run at the El Toro Marine Base. Cindy was a girl that didn't mind getting her hands dirty. She completed the difficult muddy obstacle course many times, often with her brother Jim, her sons, and their friends. This brought her immense enjoyment and satisfaction. Cindy was always  drawn to animals and wildlife of all sorts.  Faith was very important to Cindy. She regularly attended church services, and during her quiet times, read her daily devotional. 

Cindy loved her boys: Scott, Matt, and Curt. She never missed a sports activity.  Cindy was an avid, and a loud fan at their games. It was hard to miss that she was in the stands. Cindy had a very special place in her heart for her boys, and was very proud of them. Cindy was also a die hard OU fan. It always amazed me how keyed up she became watching an OU football game at the stadium or on TV. Cindy radiated warmth, confidence, and friendliness. She was kind, thoughtful, humble, and good natured. She made a point of befriending those who others might tend to ignore. 

She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Urna Lea Stover.

She is survived by her husband Brian Kent; Sons Scott Robertson and wife , Matt Robertson and wife , And Curt Salcido .
