Cyndy Stephens

January 4, 1957 — April 18, 2020

Cynthia Dahl “Cyndy” Stephens, age 63, passed away Saturday, April 18, 2020, at her home in Stover, MO.  She was born in Gary, IN and was the youngest of five children.  The family had a small farm and she raised and showed horses in her youth.    She completed high school in 1974 and was a graduate of Castleberry High School in Fort Worth, TX.  Later she  attended Forth Worth School of Business, receiving her certification in 1980.

As a young adult, she married Michael Kimbrough and had a son, Michael, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.  Later, Michael was tragically lost in a car accident in 2000.  Her dearest  son was 25 years old.

In 1987, Cyndy worked as a dental assistant with Horizon Dental in Fort Worth for two years.  She worked for a short time at Hampton Dental in Azle, TX before returning to Fort Worth where she worked for Dr. James Hamman DDS from 1992 – 1995.  For the next four years she was employed by Dr. Marshall Brown.

On June 24, 1989, in Fort Worth, TX, Cyndy was united in marriage to her beloved husband, Neal Stephens, who preceded her in death May 24, 2019.  They lived at Eagle Rock Lake, TX, where they kept a few horses and miniature ponys.  Cyndy loved to participate in parades with her miniature pony.  After moving to the Lake of the Ozarks area, they ran a “Bed and Barn” business, kept horses, and planted a vineyard. In 2008 they bought a ranch outside Texarkana, AR, continued their passion for horses, and eventually moved back to the Stover area in 2016.

Cyndy loved animals, kept horses, participated in local parades, cared for and raised family dogs, cats, and volunteered at the Stover Animal Shelter. She was a generous and caring individual, always concerned about the safety and comfort of the people in her life.

She is survived by two sisters, Marylyn Scott and Linda Edenfield, a niece, Krista Thompson, and a close nephew, Matt Stephens and his wife Teresa.  In addition to her husband and son, Cyndy was preceded in death by parents, Milton and Mary Dahl, maternal grandparents, Peter Dahl and Catherine Doram, paternal grandparents, Gustav and Gertrude Dahl, and two brothers, Donald and Joseph Dahl.
