Cynthia "Cindy" Sue (Huntsman) Freeman

October 20, 1945 ~ July 5, 2022 (age 76)


Cindy was born on Oct. 20, 1945, in Stuttgart, Arkansas to Marion Ellis Huntsman and Dorothy Newton Huntsman, both of Stuttgart, and passed away at her home on July 5, 2022.

Although her life started in Stuttgart, her parents moved to West Monroe, Louisiana in 1950, with Cindy and her siblings. She met the love of her life and husband of 58 years, Robert Freeman, on a blind date at a West Monroe football game in 1963.  They were married on March 6, 1964 and were inseparable from then on.  Cindy moved to Germany with Robert while he served overseas in the Army for two years.  After a few more stops, they made Crossett their home with Cindy holding several jobs over her 35-year career, but her favorite was being next to Robert at their business, Sporting Good Athletic Awards & Apparel until her retirement.

Cindy enjoyed spending as much time with family, which would grow to include three sons, nine grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.

She and Robert could always be counted on to attend every ballgame and any other event a grandchild or great grandchild participated in.

Cindy was a lifelong member of Community of Christ Church, where she served as an ordained minister and pianist.

In addition to embracing Jesus, Cindy was welcomed to her eternal home by her parents, Marion, and Dorothy; her sister, Marilyn; and her brothers, Johnny, and Freddie.

Cindy is survived by her husband Robert Freeman, sons Robby (Lori), Jason (Amy), and Justin (Samantha); grandchildren, Brooks, Robbi Jo, Lexie Ruth, Stella, Stetson, Maggie, Samantha, Nora, and Amanda ; and eleven great-grandchildren; along with her brothers, Alma “Oogie” Huntsman (Faye), and Chester Huntsman (Laura); one aunt, Ruth Owen; one very special friend, Eloise Adams; and several nieces and nephews.
