Cindy M. Blanchard

June 23, 1958 ~ February 3, 2024 (age 65) 65 Years Old


Cindy M. (Melone) Blanchard, 65, of Methuen, MA, passed away peacefully at Brigham and Women’s Hospital surrounded by her beloved family. Cindy was the wife of William “Bill” Blanchard with whom she shared 37 years of marriage.

Born and raised in Malden, MA, Cindy was the daughter of the late Ferdinand “Fred” and Roberta “Babe” (Jensen) Melone and predeceased by her sister, Jamie. Cindy was a graduate of Malden High and worked in Boston at Prudential Life and Northwestern National Life Insurance during her early career. Most recently she worked at Andover Dermatology for 17 years, where she met her favorite group of “work ladies” who were her support team in countless ways.

Cindy loved life and would always have a way to make you smile. She enjoyed attending all Brendan’s and Michelle’s sporting events while meeting lifelong friends along the way. She also enjoyed her days on the boat and lake vacations. Cindy’s greatest joy came from being with family. “The sisters” were inseparable and were always together enjoying Saturday shopping and trips to Foxwoods, New York City, Hoboken, and Loon Mountain, to name a few. Cindy was a member of the “Chick Mobile” crew who shared many great times growing up in Malden.

Cindy’s proudest moment was becoming a grandmother. Bennett was the sparkle in her eye as she would beam sharing stories and pictures of him.

Cindy is survived and will be greatly missed by her husband Bill; loving son, Brendan and his wife Allison (Conway); loving daughter, Michelle; sisters, Kim Lyons and her husband Dave of Revere, Teri Hynes and her husband Gary of Peabody, and Jody Melone of Melrose. She will be missed by her husband’s family, mother, Florence of Dracut; late father, Roland "Doc," brother, Thomas and his late wife Annmarie of Methuen; sister, Carolann Desjarlais and her husband Daniel of Bridgewater; and brother, Andrew and his wife Rachel of Dracut.

She adored her nieces and nephews, Casey Sieck and her husband Dan, Courtney Lyons, Jeremy Hynes and his wife Theresa, Jared Hynes and his wife Gamze, Nicole Desjarlais-Paulick and her husband Spencer, Bianca Magnell and her husband Brian, Ashley Paine and her husband Derek, and Meghan McCarthy and her husband Jack, along with many grandnieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the medical team of 3B Medical ICU at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for the compassion and care they provided Cindy. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in Cindy’s memory to The Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Inc., 375 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115.
