 A celebration of the life of Cindy L. Munk, 47, of Sitka will be held 2-4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26 at the American Legion. Those attending are asked to take a dish to share. Cindy died Aug. 19, 2005 at the home of her mother in Ione, Wash. She had been diagnosed with cancer in May and had been in Ione since leaving the hospital. She was born Feb. 17, 1958 in Spokane, but grew up in San Leandro, Calif. where she graduated from high school.  Her family moved to Carson City, Nev.,in 1977, and she lived there until moving to Ketchikan in 1993. She came to Sitka later in the 1990s and worked as a fisher as well as at Bay View Restaurant. She loved getting together with friends and especially cooking for them. She frequently volunteered in the kitchen for the American Legion, and had a knack of bringing a smile to the faces of her friends and strangers alike.  She thoroughly enjoyed her job at the Bay View, where she cooked, prepped, bussed tables and generally was a jack of all trades for more than four years. She was known for her generosity. "Anyone who knew her would agree that if Cindy had $5 in her pocket, one was for her and the other $4 for everybody else" her friends said.
Although she had known adversity, she unfailingly kept her chin up and a smile on her face, even through the hardest times. "This was especially evident in her valiant battle with the illness that took her from us and delivered her to the arms of the angels" her friends wrote.  "Cindy will be sorely missed by everyone who had the privilege to know her. God bless you our friend"  She was preceded in death by her grandparents Rose and Homer Edge. She is survived by her mother and stepfather, Joseph and Carol (Edge) Iovino, 852 W Joyner Dr., Cusick, WA, 99119; her father Duane Munk of Spokane; grandparents Robert and Elizabeth Munk of Spokane; three brothers, Danile Monk and his son Justin of Reedly, Calif., Todd Munk of Spokane, and John Munk and his wife Kerry and their daughters Nichole and Danielle Munk, of Gardnerville, Nev.; and many cousins.
