Cynthia Lee Ciochetto
Cynthia Lee (Lytle) "Cyndy" Ciochetto, 76, of Forestville, passed away on Wednesday (Jan. 22, 2020) at home after a six and a half year battle with ovarian cancer.

Early jobs she held were a cashier at Penn Theatre, a secretary at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, and an office person at Bolotin's Furniture Store.
After raising her children, she worked at Slippery Rock University in the North Hall dining room, and later as a data transcriber/trainer for OPM/FIPC, which later became USIS when they were privatized. She also worked several years at the Mercer Township Election House.

Cyndy and her husband Dave enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Cancun, Mexico; cruising the Caribbean; and wintering in North Fort Myers, Fla. She also completed her bucket list trip to Alaska on a cruise and interior tour with her family in 2015 during one of her remissions.
