Cindy Blackwell Death, Obituary – We kindly ask that you pray for Cindy’s family as well as all of her other families in the OOH during this unbearably trying time. Please remember them in your prayers and thoughts. Each and every one of us feels absolutely crushed and is going through a terrible sense of sorrow as a result of the loss of Cindy Nelson Blackwell, who was a beloved member of our Original Oyster House family. Her vivacious personality and contagious grin will live on in our hearts and minds for a very long time.
We are praying for her children and the rest of her family during this difficult time. All of them are on our minds and in our concerns. Alonzo Blackwell and Lillian (Wilson) Blackwell, her parents, had both died before she was born in Jasper, Alabama; as a result, her maternal grandparents raised her. She had an Alonzo and a Lillian Blackwell as her parents. She was a product of the community because she was raised in Jasper and graduated from Jasper High School.
She was a member of the neighborhood. She moved to Lynn sixty years ago and has only visited Jasper again in the last three years, but she lived there when it was a small town. During his time serving in the Coast Guard during World War II, Mr. Blackwell suffered an injury that required him to visit a hospital. She was an active member of the AF and AM Masons in addition to the Italian Community Center. She participated actively in the events held at the Italian Community Center.
She loved playing cards, going fishing, tending to her garden, and carving wood. These were just a few of the pastimes she enjoyed. She spent many years working as a repairman at Harbor Vehicle in Lynn, where she excelled at performing work on car bodies. She stayed there for a while. One son, Scott Blackwell, who lives in Jasper, Alabama, two daughters, Susan Panagakis-Collari and Richard of Middleton, and Denise Coglin and Barry of Nashua, New Hampshire, four grandchildren, Randy and Amy Panagakis, Mark and Janet Panagakis, Cynthia and Emily Coglin, and four great-grandchildren, Matthew, Melissa, Mark, and Elizabeth, are left to carry on her legacy. Her husband is also left to care for her. Her four great-great-grandchildren and great-great-great-grandchildren are also left behind.
