She attended school in Frazer and then also went to Nashua and Brockton schools before she ended up going to Chemawa Indian School in Oregon. She made life long friends during her time at these schools. She married at a young age and two children were born to this union, Marvin Jr. and Cherish in 1983 & 1986 respectively. She married for a second time and was blessed with two more children Kira in 1988 and Tyrone in 1990. Cindy worked many years at A & S Industries and that is where is where she met Byron Bauer, whom she always considered her soul mate and love her of life. They married and made their home in Wolf Point, Mt. In later years after the closure of A & S she started working at Albertsons, where she enjoyed her job and co-workers tremendously. Cindy loved and enjoyed her family always making sure to remember birthdays and holidays. She was so proud of all her children and especially her grandchildren. Her and Byron enjoyed raising Nathan since he was a baby and later also took in his brother Xavier. Cindy always made sure she was a good friend and took care of family as best she could.
