Cynthia Ann Simpson-Tumeh

Cynthia Ann (Cindy) Simpson-Tumeh passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 9, 2020, at the age of 59.

She was born on March 31, 1961, in Monument Valley, Utah, to Duke and Rose Simpson.

Imagine if you will, a spirit now unfettered by the temporal world; newly freed to explore the cosmos, to float upon and within the ether that was, is and will be. To have recently witnessed perfection along with truth in all things. In this world, our dear Cindy was an explorer; an individual who tested the bounds of being in an attempt to reveal new, unique ways of seeing, believing and accomplishing goals. She pushed, pulled and bumped against barriers and boundaries in an attempt to find new exciting ways through or around. We are certain that Cindy will continue to grow and evolve within her newly discovered universe.

Cindy will always be with us. Although we can no longer embrace her physically, she touches us with her vision, her tenacity, strength and passion. We must know and recognize her now through memories; a scent on the wind, a twist of phrase, a ghostly touch when one cannot be. A small summer bird building an intricate nest reminds us of her boundless energy. Distant bells on the breeze bring back her delightful laughter and a glint of refracted sunlight the twinkle in her bold brown eyes; sensitive reminders that stimulate our minds and imagination to Cindy’s enthusiastic energy.

Cindy would not choose to be painted as perfect, so we will not do so here, but to her adoring family she was a woman of wonder who will be greatly missed, so please: imagine and remember. Cindy would appreciate that.

Cindy is preceded in death by her father, William Woodrow (Duke) Simpson of Blanding, Utah. She is survived by her mother, Rose Simpson of Blanding, Utah; her husband, Amer Tumeh of Bluff; her son, Tarrik Tumeh of Moab; Susan and Renis Hylton of Mesa, Az.; Craig and Kathy Simpson of Blanding; Barry and Laurie Simpson of Blanding; Steve and Georgianna Simpson of Bluff; her nieces, Breanne, Kacee, Andrea, Alyssa, Dacia, McKale and Kira; and her nephews, Adam, Spenser and Grange. She reveled in being a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt and friend.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 11 a.m. at the Blanding City Cemetery. Friends are invited. Condolences may be sent to the family at
