[PRpond.  Cindy Honn, Service - Rain or Shine]

Cynthia (Cindy) Ann Honn's passing was announced by an organization closely associated with her many years of service, El Dorado Search and Rescue.

December 7 at 1:59pm "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing today of Cindy Honn, SAR 1. Cindy was an incredible person and mere words alone cannot describe just how much she meant to all of us in the EDSAR family. Cindy has been part of our EDSAR family since May 1975... 42 years of service to El Dorado county and beyond.
God bless you Cindy, you are deeply loved and will be sorely missed.
"

Another organization she is very close to, National Pony Express Association, added: 

"It is with heavy hearts that we reach out to you with the news that our friend and Rider Cynthia Honn has passed. She shared her time between National Pony Express Association California Division and El Dorado County Search and Rescue and was honored to do so, it was her way of giving back. She will be missed greatly by all and will be thought of often and fondly by those who knew and loved her.  Mom and I greatly appreciate the support everyone has given along with the cards, letters and phone calls and we thank you greatly for your love, honor and respect during this time."

Michael Stroude noted that Cindy worked several seasons as a rec tech on the Amador Ranger District. "Over the years I believe she has worked on every district within the Eldorado National Forest. She will be missed," he wrote on Facebook.

Sara Wehe Such: "Cindy was one of my biggest supporters when I was in 4H. She taught me so much about horses and I even leased her horse Caper, which some of you might remember as she used him in SAR. I was also in the 4H sheep project and looked forward to going and finding her everyday of fair to say Hi while she was working with SAR. Very blessed to have had her in my life."
