Cynthia Diane Thistle, wife of Steven Thistle (owner of Robert E. Thistle Graphic Arts Equipment in Vaughan, Ontario), passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on December 17, 2018. Born on December 7, 1960 in Toronto, Cindy was a key part of the company, and was well known throughout the printing industry for her humour, infectious laugh and brimming smile. Cindy married Steven in 1989. Her pride and joy were her two son’s Zachary and Jacob. She supported them 100% in all of their endeavours, and always felt that they were the couple’s greatest achievement. She also took the time to maintain friendships with those in the industry and with many people she grew up with. Warm and fun-loving, Cindy will be sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Maple, Ontario (9860 Keele Street).
