In Memory

Cindy Chelarin (Grossman) - Class Of 1961

Cindy Chelarin (Grossman)

We don't have a lot of information in that both Cindy and Wally are both gone.

Cindy passed away about 10 years ago.  She had a brain tumor.  She and Wally were living in California.  We know for sure that had at least one daughter that would be about 40 years old.

Anyone with contact information about the daughter should let us know.

Cynthia, as she was known as when she first came here back in Beach School days, was who my mother always referred to as "that pretty girl".  I remember, because of her fair complexion, she always showed embarrassment easily.  Having said that, I'm not sure how she married Wally Grossman, but then again, I've never been much of a matchmaker.  She always seemed such a quite and gentle person; the type that we can never have enough of.  I know she is missed.

We are so pleased that Cindy and Wally's daughter found us!  She lives in Orange County California. She has a wedding photo and some other pictures that she would like to share so we will be adding those when we get them.  She will tell us all about her parents and we look forward to hearing from her.   She shared that Nancy Cross was with Cindy the night she met Wally at a sock hop...and, as they say, the rest is history!

Actually she was with Paula Meyer at the Sock Hop (the Valentine's Dance in 1961). 

Mom went to the senior prom with Dad and I should be able to find a picture from that as well.  Nancy Cross was mom's best friend, but I think when they were younger.  I will have to ask her (Nancy Cross) more as I have recently been in contact with her as well.

For those of you who knew other Chelarin/Grossman siblings.  Nancy lives in CA, Charles lives in OH, Don and Larry live in IL and Susan died in 2003, just before mom.

I just noticed on Facebook that Cindy and Wally's daughter,Michelle, passed away a couple days ago. There are no specific details just a lot of postings from friends. Apparently the death was very sudden.  Our condolences to her friends and family.
