Cindy L Bruning

Cindy L Bruning

May 13, 1956 – November 27, 2022

Born in May of 1956, Cindy, the daughter of ‘Big Fred’ and Rose Bruning, devoted her life to her family restaurant, Big Fred’s, and to her three children: Mia, John, and Philip. Her bold personality and quick wit left a lasting impression on all those she encountered and she will be dearly missed by friends and family.

As Cindy is greeted in heaven by her parents, friends and family who preceded her in death, her loved ones who survive are blessed by the time they had with her. Cindy’s three children and six grandchildren cherish the memories with their mom/granny/nani, knowing that they will all meet again.

Cindy’s family sincerely thanks all of those who cared for her — especially Diane Hernandez, and her team of caretakers, who provided support for Cindy in recent years; Dr. Selveraj, whose compassion and skill brought peace to Cindy; and to the dozens of other nurses and doctors who cared for her over the years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Rose Bruning. She is survived by her children: Mia Bracht (Tim), John Murante (Melissa), Philip Murante (Lindsey); grandchildren: Lura, Cecilia, Paul, Grace, Natalia & Michael; brother, Phil Bruning (Ginna); aunt, Ellen McCaig; uncle, Bill Bruning.
