Cynthia Anne Ruggeri passed away in Katy, Texas, on September 28, 2015. She was born in Fayette, Missouri, and graduated from Central Methodist College with a degree in Political Science. She went on to finish a Master's in Library Sciences from the University of Missouri in Columbia.

On September 28, 1974, she married John William Ruggeri in St. Louis, Missouri. Cindy worked in both the St. Louis Public Library and Fort-Bend County Public Library systems for over 45 years in total. Her passion for bringing new knowledge to others extended beyond the bookshelves, into crochet and knitting workshops that she hosted through many library programs. She ended her career as the Branch Manager at the Sugar Land branch.

She is survived by her husband, John; her three children, Joseph (Holly), Kathryn (Wesley), and Matthew; two grandsons, Tommy and Dominic; her three brothers, Eugene Jr., James, and Matthew; her sister, Betsy; and many nieces and nephews.
