Cynthia Diane Canchola-White

Cynthia Diane Canchola-White passed away Saturday, May 2, 2020, after her battle with cancer. She was born October 3, 1958, to Abel Canchola Sr. and Naomi Avila. She traveled across country as a teen and finally settled in the Grand Coulee Dam area in 1980, where she has called home ever since. While there, she spent her time being the tiny, quirky, loveable bartender that everyone remembers to this day. She was hard working, selfless, with a true heart of gold, and would have done anything to help anyone.

But everyone knows Cindy's most favorite job in the world was being a mother. She was devoted to her daughter, whom she always spoke of, beaming while doing so. Their bond was immeasurable.

Other loves were the Chicago Bears, Tweety Bird and coloring; which was fitting, as she colored the world and all the many lives she touched in her years with us.

On September 25, 2018, Cynthia married her companion and friend Johnnathon White in Coeur d' alene, Idaho. He remained steadfast until the very end. She is survived by her husband, Johnn, daughter Blue Harmony Meek, brothers: Abel Canchola Jr, Ronald Canchola, and Victor Canchola; sister, Renee Canchola, as well as many loved nephews and nieces.

She is preceded in death by her father Abel, mother Naomi, and sister Sylvia Montes.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
