Cynthia Helen Ostlund, born May 25, 1965 in Orange County. Was a resident of Lake County California for the last 20 years. She passed away surrounded by her family after a long battle with medical issues on March 17, 2019.

She enjoyed her family, friends and most of all her grandchildren. She loved camping, watching her son and friends fish, gardening, being in the sunshine just enjoying life for what it was.

She was preceded in death by her daughter Mandy Sue Ostlund; mother, Julia Lee Qwinn Knight; and father, Richard Curtis Knight. She is survived by her children David Ostlund, Lance Ostlund, Lisa Ostlund and Bruce Leaton; her siblings Mickey Johnston, Rhonda Greek and brother-in-law Brad Greek, Sherrie Warnow and brother-in-law Steve Warnow; her grandchildren, Shane Ostlund, Kimberly Leaton, Harvey Leaton and Cameron Ostlund; nieces and nephews, Jeremy Johnston, Barbara Nati, Brian Warnow, Kayla Warnow, Brittney Warnow, Devon Allen and Nick Greek; great-nieces and great-nephews Simonne Masse, Brody, Karson, Kyrie Warnow and Mason Allen; and lots of very close friends.

We will be having a celebration of life on May 25, 2019 at 1 p.m. at Newburg Park in Fortuna, at the grass area by the playground. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace!
