Service of Memory

Cindi Jorgensen presents

“Service of Memory”

Worship Leader: Lee Plumb
Accompanist: Gary Smart

About Our Service:

Our national obsession with genealogy and the science of genetics has given us a window into our family trees. These connections fulfill a historical and spiritual need. You might wonder where you got your tenacity, your musical talent, or your athleticism. Haven’t we all at some time yearned to have a few precious moments with an ancestor to search for stories or facts to help define us? For this presentation, you will be asked to transport yourself into the possibility of having lunch with an ancestor and asking them a question. Who will it be?

About Our Speaker:

Cynthia (Cindi) Jorgensen grew up in the Baltimore area and lived in Vero Beach for the last 40 years.  She became a UU seven years ago at the Fellowship in Vero Beach, and was an active member, working in the Fair Trade Corner and acting as chairperson for the Ministries Council.

She and Pete, her husband of 43 years, recently moved to Avondale, where they are busily turning a 1926 bungalow into their forever home. She is a BBUUC member, chairs the Membership Committee, and is an enthusiastic volunteer in many areas of church life.

Cindy’s career as a nurse focused on Critical Care and on Pediatrics. For the last 20 years, she and her BFF developed and taught the very successful medical careers program in Vero Beach.  She was also a National Board Certified teacher in career-tech and active in many schools and community committees.

She also has a degree in history and in an unapologetic history nerd. Cindy loves to travel, and has been to most in Europe, quite a few in Southeast Asia, and to Tanzania where she spent 2 summers volunteering in schools and hospitals.  

She is passionate about the environment, universal healthcare, DACA,  equal rights, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin. She is convinced that being part of a liberal community is essential to leaving a positive footprint on the earth.
