She was born on January 22nd, 1935 in Canton to the late Ben and Mildred (Paquelet) Heggy. In 1954 she graduated from St. Aloysius Academy in New Lexington, Ohio, where she was a cheerleader. She and Richard Wollenberg met at the Academy and later married on June 22, 1957. Together they shared four children. Cindy spent her life serving her family as a homemaker, wife, and mother. She deeply loved her children, grandchildren and friends. The love and appreciation were reciprocated by her family and friends. Her passions included traveling, interior decorating, and assisting the less fortunate. She will be remembered as a kind and generous person who had an impact on everyone she met. She worked for her father at Ben Heggy Candy Company, which she and Richard later became co-owners with her sisters. Later in life, she became a third-order Franciscan at the Sancta Clara Monastery, where she dedicated her time to charity, social service, and works of mercy.
