Cindy Ann Larson, of Isle, formerly of Mora, passed away on Sunday, September 26, 2021, at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis from complications of COVID-19. She was 64 years old.

Cindy was born the 2nd child of 4 on May 6, 1957 in Rochester, MN to Ernie and LaVonne (Silker) Butts. Cindy grew up in Austin, MN with her siblings Carol, Sue, and Bill. Cindy was married to David Hughley in 1976. That marriage resulted in 3 children, Joshua, Jeffrey, and Jessica. Cindy and Dave moved their family to a farm in Isle, MN in 1984. Where they raised their family until they separated.

Cindy married Jerome Weaver in 2003. She and Jerry operated CJs Resort in Wahkon, MN during their life together until Jerry became ill and Cindy was widowed in 2009. She and Jerry lived in Mora, MN.
Cindy returned to the farm in Isle in 2019. She then married Jesse Larson on June 30, 2020.

Cindy has been a caregiver with the Volunteers of America for 24 years. She had a passion for the individuals she cared for. Each of them became like family to her. She started her career with the VOA in Wahkon, MN where she had the pleasure of working with one of her closest friends, Sue Kingsbury. She then spent many years caring for the residents in Princeton and most recently was working in Milaca, MN. She made the transition to Milaca to support the needs of Lori Kent who Cindy has been taking care of for 18 years. Lori became like a daughter to Cindy.

The things that brought Cindy the most enjoyment in her life were the people in it. Cindy loved spending as much time with her grandchildren as she could. She would take them to movies, the park, waterparks or simply just her home where they could snuggle and play. Cindy also enjoyed her “girls’ day” with her sisters, Carol and Sue, and sister-in-law, Jen. They would spend the day shopping at the Mall of America followed by the latest movie release. Cindy simply loved living and being with the people she cared most about. For those that knew her, they knew that she was the kindest, most giving person.

Cindy was a regular attendee at Emmanuel Baptist Church where she was Baptized in Christ in 2019.

Cindy was preceded in death by her parents, Ernie, and LaVonne Butts; sister, Carol Yarwood; son, Jeffery Hughley; and former husband Jerry Weaver.

Cindy is survived by her loving husband Jesse Larson; son, Joshua (Tina) Hughley; daughter, Jessica (Leslie) Hughley-Sadler; grandchildren, Alexander Hughley, Emily Hughley, Cooper Bredeson, Kalyn Faulkner, Beckett Bredeson, Ryan Utz, Hallie Hughley and Kota Hughley; sister Susan Olson (Don Jackels); brother William (Jennifer) Butts; brother-in-law Vern Yarwood; Jesse’s parents, Mark and Michele Larson; Jesse’s children, Kyle (April) Larson, Kayla (Don) Utz, Keith (Kayla) Larson, Dylan (Leah) Czech; many other relatives and countless friends.

  1. We only got to meet you a couple of times due to distance, but you raised a daughter that is near and dear to our hearts. Thanks for sharing her with us. But could immediately tell you were a good person with lots of love.

    Please accept my condolences for your family’s loss. I’ll continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.


  3. Cindy was my best friend,, I will miss her so very much, her smile, her laugh, good thoughts and advice. She loved my little sister Lori like a second Mom to her, Lori loves her dearly also. I am sorry for your loss, just know she is watching over you all and is no longer suffering. Love you Cindy

  4. I am a former consumer of VOA and my moments with Cindy were always so short and sweet. I loved all the times I got to see her and loved getting a lot of advice from her some of which I will never forget. So glad GOD allowed us to cross patches. I will miss her very much

  5. Cindy was such a wonderful person, I enjoyed working with her at the casino. I still have the spider plant she gave me 17 years ago when my son was born and think of her every time I look at that plant. Thinking of you all.

  6. Cindy was one of my closest friends. We were also co workers for many years at VOA. We shared so many years of our lives ups and downs together. Many laughs and many tears as friends do. Cindy was loving and caring plus a little rough around the edges, which I loved. She was truly a blessing to me in my life. I will forever miss her. Love you Cindy.

  7. May God bless Cindy as he welcomed her into her home in heaven. Please Lord wrap your arms around Cindy’s family in this time of sorrow.

  8. Jessica,

    Words won’t dull your pain right now. But please know that you have people in your life that’ll be here to help you, Leslie, and the kids get through this. We love all of you and are praying for your strength.
