Cindy Lynn Orozco

February 29, 1980 — September 16, 2023

Pembroke Pines

Cindy Lynn Orozco de Leon was the kindest-hearted person you would ever meet. This is often said about someone after they pass, but Cindy lived every day of her life for the ones she loved. At 19 Cindy became pregnant with her first child, a daughter, Katelynn. She was blessed to marry the love of her life and raise their baby together. Cindy and Luis worked hard to provide the perfect life for their growing family and soon welcomed Alexander into this world.  Their family was complete. Katelynn grew up to follow her dad’s footsteps and fell in love with softball. Cindy spent every weekend watching Katelynn play. Long work weeks turned to weekends away for softball, late nights of laundry and homework, to start over again the next day. Alex fell in love with basketball and Cindy sat proudly in the stands at every game, recording every time Alex touched the ball. She was their biggest cheerleader and found true joy watching her children do what they loved. At 28 Cindy was diagnosed with colon cancer. Surgery was able to remove the cancer and Cindy quickly got back to her life of being a mom.

Cindy surrounded herself with people she loved, and everyone loved Cindy. A negative word could not be said about her. Cindy and her husband would open their home to the family every holiday. She tirelessly cooked, cleaned, served, and entertained the family. Cindy did not eat until everyone else had their plate. If you needed something, Cindy would not rest until she found it. If you asked for advice, Cindy would talk and share what she knew, research and learn new things and not let you leave without an answer. Cindy often times sacrificed her own needs and wants to ensure those around her had their needs and wants met first. She was the definition of selflessness.

At 43 Cindy discovered a new battle with cancer was upon her. Her selflessness led her to make the decision to battle again. She underwent Chemo and radiation while suffering side-effects and symptoms of a rapidly growing cancer in her uterus. Enlarged lymph nodes caused her leg to swell and immobilized her. Through the pain and beyond the fight she continued to care for those around her, shielding them from the harsh reality of what she was facing. Through pain and with the assistance of a walker, Cindy attended Katelynn’s college senior softball night. Unfortunately, she was too weak to attend Katelynn’s graduation a few months later, attending only via video. Watching Kate cross that stage brought such immense pride to Cindy. She was able to enroll Alex in college and set him on a path toward lifetime success. We hope she rests easy knowing her children will live successful and fulfilling lives because of the way she raised them.

Cindy leaves behind the love of her life, Luis, whom she grew up with from teenagers. She leaves her daughter Katelynn, her mini-me, whom she was so proud of every day. She leaves Alex, the boy who stole her heart, and he never left her side. She leaves parents who should not have to say goodbye so soon. She leaves sisters who looked up to her and shared so many memories with her. She leaves brothers who won't get to grow old with her. She leaves nieces and nephews whom she loved showering with gifts and watching them grow. She leaves countless cousins and friends who don’t know how they will go on without her being a phone call away. She leaves behind a world that is now dimmer without her smile. A world that is missing her joy and kindness. Of all the people in all the world we would not trade the short time we had with Cindy for anyone else for any amount of time. To know her was to love her and to love her was a gift.

Cindy is survived by her husband Luis, children Katelynn (23) and Alexander (19). Her father Manuel Orozco and in-laws Luis and Belinda de León. She leaves her sisters Jennifer Estevez, Misty Weech, and Monica Orozco. Brothers Manny Orozco and Billy Orozco. There are countless family members that will mourn her today and forever.
