Cindy Jo Shore, age 53, of Rochester, MN was called home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, December 12, 2011. Cindy Jo Franklin was born November 2, 1958 in Cokato, MN to James and LaVerne (Hintz) Franklin. She grew up in the Wayzata/Plymouth, MN area. She married Thomas A. Shore on August 22, 1981 at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wayzata. Cindy worked for Ericksons Super Value in Wayzata until the couple moved to Rochester in 1985. She then focused her attention to being a devoted wife and mother.
She is survived by Tom - her husband of 30 years, daughter Sarah and son-in-law Bobby Anderson of St. Paul, MN, her parents James and LaVerne Franklin of Big Lake, MN, a brother Keith Franklin (Julie) of Clearwater, MN, two sisters Barbara Hartwell (Warren), and Elizabeth Hanson both of Burnsville, MN as well as nieces and nephews.
Cindys strong faith has sustained her through many years dealing with the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis. She enjoyed her weekly gathering with the Parkwood Hills neighborhood ladies Bible study. Her contagious smile continued to brighten every space she entered and inspired others to seek her source of peace and comfort.

Please know that the years and miles that have separated
us physically, do not keep our prayers from finding you at
this time. There is a circle of love that surrounds you and
will lift you when you need it.
Much love always,
Paul and Carol Breyer
When I heard about the loss of Cindy, I could not help but to think of her smile and her laugh that always lit up the room. I am so thankful of the times we were able to visit at the dental office. Her spirit was uplifting and I will remember her always! You are in my prayers.
Sorry if this is crossing nurse-patient boundaries, but I wanted to tell you how very sad I was to hear of Cindy's passing....she was one of my first patients at my new job position (and caused my first cry there, too...I cried when Cindy's mom cried) and I know I won't ever forget her. The love and support that your family showed for each other is truly beautiful, and it was a privilege to have met all of you. God Bless.
Tom and Sarah --
We are lifting you both up in prayer these days, trusting in
the precious promises of Our Lord Jesus that Cindy held so
dear. Her quiet smile and perseverance in the midst of
suffering along with your loving gentle care for her all these
years have been a sweet blessing to us all.
God Bless you as you grieve,
Anne and Roger Lindahl
