Losing a friend is one of the hardest experiences that we go through. Our friends play such an essential part of our lives, providing support, laughter, and unforgettable memories.
Today our hearts our heavy with grief but also brimming with gratitude for having had Cindy Ferritto in our lives.
Cindy was not only a wonderful friend, but a great teacher as well. While in high school, Cindy worked at the Deepwood Center with special needs adults. This experience inspired her to continue on to college where she earned her bachelor’s degree in special education. Cindy spent the next 24 years teaching for the Madison School District. She started her career in Madison teaching special needs students at the middle school. Cindy took on more training and became a pre-school special needs teacher. Before retiring in 2013, Cindy spent the last few years teaching third grade.
Family and service were also important facets of her life. Cindy was a member of Immaculate Conception and upon retiring, she became a case manager for the St. Vincent DePaul Society. Throughout her life, teaching and education played an important role. She was an active member of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society serving as president as well as various committee chairs through the years.
In between chairing committees and meetings, Cindy found time for herself. She enjoyed swimming fitness classes, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Her cats Binx and Winnie provided her with much needed comfort and entertainment. Cindy was the beloved wife of 43 years to Jim Ferritto and loving mother of Megan Ferritto. She leaves behind family and friends that miss her dearly.
