Jane ìCindyî Wadsley, born January 7th, 1952, from Lomita, California, every manís dream, leader of the mother-daughters troop ìmimiís,î flower whisperer, badass Swedish Viking, and loving mother, did what every bad ass thrill seeker does, she went in seek of a greater adventure with her longtime best friend, God, on February 21, 2015. On her new adventure, she leaves behind her legacy to husband Ali Alimahomed, brother and fellow badass Swedish Viking Jimmy Wadsley, daughters Tracey Story Hutzenbiler, Michelle and Stephanie Hicks, and adventure cadet grandkids Ava and Grant Hutzenbiler.

When not out exploring the world, Cindy lived at the house she and her family had built from the ground up, in Lomita. The very same place where her amazing craft skills cultivated. Being opposite of a jack of all trades, she was Jane of all trades, master of everything! There isnít one thing this tough cookie couldnít do! She enjoyed using power tools, cutting saws, woodworking, landscaping, and most of all gardening. She had a magical way of bringing beautiful flowers, plants, and trees to life. It was so enchanting, that even passer-byes would stop and sit in her white gazebo to admire her beautiful garden. Among the other things full of life in her garden were the many bunnies, praying mantises, kitties, geckos, crickets, dogs, and a scarlet macaw that she fostered. Her genuine personality, passion for life, and sense of humor were off the charts! She liked to play jokes on strangers by pretending to speak in Norwegian with a heavy Swedish accent, which people always fell for, especially doctors!

Among other accomplishments, she graduated and became a nurse alongside her mother. She was so sweet, caring, nurturing, compassionate, and the ìcouldnít even hurt a flyî type of girl. Well, unless it was a spiderÖ in that case theyíd receive the opposite treatment! She had an undying love for her favorite sweets – Red Hots, Abba Zabas, root beer, bread pudding, and chocolate chip mint ice cream. She always seemed to pull a candy bar out of her purse during the perfect moments. She loved to go bungee jumping, dancing, snorkeling, scuba diving, defying the odds, being a daredevil, anything challenging or thrilling, you name it, and sheís done it!

Cindy will live on through us every day! She has taught us to live life to the fullest, not to live in fear, go out there and try something new, and how to be one tough cookie!

Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at A.M. Gamby Funeral Home, at 2:00 p.m. Reception will follow at the Funeral Home.
