Cyndi was born on November 26, 1966 in Tacoma, Washington, to Greg and Kathleen (McDaniel) Gauthier. She attended Cooper Elementary School and was honored to draw the school mascot—go Cooper Crickets! She also attended East High School in Sioux City.
Growing up Cyndi lived in Tacoma, WA, Cedar Rapids, IA, and Denver, CO, before moving to Sioux City. On July 17, 1998 she married Sheldon S. Koeppe and they made their home in Ponca, where they lived for 25 years.
Cyndi’s pride and joy was her family. There was nothing she loved more than spending time with her grandchildren and kids. She cherished family holidays spent together, grinch day, and pumpkin day were some of her favorite activities. She also enjoyed various crafts, as well as casino trips with her mother-in-law.
She spent 18 years working for the Dixon County Sheriff’s Department as both a dispatch jailer and a compliance officer.
She is survived by her husband, Sheldon Koeppe; children: Jeremy Koeppe (Jessica), Brittney Wood (Brent), McKinzi Worrell (Brady), Beau Koeppe (Jill), Mikki Demary (Michelle), Garrett Palmersheim, Kylee Rohde (Jake Jones), and Riley Koeppe (Ashley); grandchildren: Jackson Koeppe, Will Koeppe, Kambrei Wood, Brinley Wood, Hadley Wood, Gage Wood, Kinsley Worrell, Kennedy Worrell, Reed Worrell, Ryder Worrell, Morgan Worrell, Nora Koeppe, Avery Koeppe, Aiden Palmersheim, Brock Rohde, Blake Rohde, Parker Koeppe, Layla Koeppe, Owen Koeppe, and Milo Koeppe; brothers: Kevin Schwartz and Keith Schwartz; and a special aunt, Lulu Stucks.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Kathy; her father, Dave Schwartz; and a son, Francis Palmersheim.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Dixon County Sheriff’s Department family for the love they showed Cyndi over the years.
