Lucinda S. “Cindy” (Sherman) Adams, passed away unexpectedly on Friday September 18, 2020.

Cindy was one of four children of the late Robert L. and Mary T. (Noponen) Sherman. She was born in Worcester and spent her formative years residing in Boylston. After graduating high school, she received her Associate’s degree in Retail and Merchandising from Becker College and was employed as Regional Merchandiser with Thom McAn in Worcester. She later served for many years as Town Clerk of Boylston. Cindy always kept her eye for design, whether it be decorating her many homes, or building several homes with her former husband, as a general contractor.

Cindy leaves her loving son, Jason L. Adams and his partner Travis Lepkowski, of Worcester; sister, Debra Magiera and her husband Gary, of Myrtle Beach, SC, and brothers Robert Sherman, of Ellicott City, Maryland, and Stephen Sherman, of Shrewsbury. She will be missed by her many cousins, nieces, and nephews, including Christopher Sherman and Stephanie Sherman-Dolan; her granddogs, Rylee and Zoey; and her former husband, Steven R. Adams, of Worcester.

Cindy will be remembered by all for her friendship, loyalty and dedication, especially in her caretaking of her parents and her brother. She will also be deeply missed by her beloved dog, Sophie.

Roger and I are so sorry for your loss. Cindy was a lot of fun and we remember so many great times boating and enjoying camping when we were young. She will be missed.

Your Mother/Sibling was a very special and dearest friend to me. I will always remember the good times, the laughter, and the lessons she taught me. Cindy was an incredible who can never be replaced. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. All my love in this difficult time. I leave you with this poem by David Harkins--She is Gone:
You can shed tears that she is gone,
of you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of love you shared.
You can tur your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
Smile, Open your eyes, love and go on.

Also: Tao Te Ching stated: "To hold, you must first open your hand. Let go"

Again, my very deepest sympathy. She is and always will be missed. Love, Linda Burke and David Kennedy
