Beth Sindler
Apopka, Fla.

Beth Sindler, born June 30, 1952 on Shaw Air Force Base, SC was a person dedicated to service, God, her community, and her family. A person of great warmth and kindness, she served as a teacher, a library director, a community volunteer, a Sunday School leader and church Elder, and as a devoted wife and mother to her five children. She modeled compassion, strength, diligence, intellect, honesty, and all around goodness to everyone she met. She was a Matthew 25:34-40 type of Christian, with a heart bent towards addressing the needs of the poor and the marginalized. She was a giving person in every sense of the word; giving her knowledge, time, effort, and countless pints of her own blood every eight weeks as a frequent donor to the Central Florida Blood Bank. 

She poured every ounce of her heart and soul into being a wonderful, wonderful mom; teaching lessons and values that her children are still trying to learn and emulate. An avid sports fan of baseball, football, and basketball, she enjoyed rooting for several teams, including her alma mater the Georgia Bulldogs. She passed away on January 18th 2016 in the presence of her family who love and miss her dearly.

Her final breath was taken on a day named after a man she greatly admired and celebrated. Every day of her life she manifestly answered Dr. King’s persistent and urgent question, “What are you doing for others?”

Beth is survived by her husband Robert, their five children Julie (Sam), Amy (Victor), David (Melissa), Sean (Kyeong Seon) and Derek; her five grandchildren Allan, Jennifer, Charly, Thomas, and Elizabeth; and her siblings Susan (Jake) and Ernie (Karleen). Beth is predeceased by her parents Earnest and Margaret McLeod. Memorial Services are Saturday Jan. 30 at First Presbyterian Church of Apopka at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be sent to Habitat for Humanity Seminole-Apopka.
