Cynthia "Cindy" L. DuBois, 59, of Fort Smith, graduated into Heaven, Saturday, May 13, 2017, at Mercy Hospice surrounded by her family after a long battle with lung disease.

She was a deputy clerk for the City of Fort Smith, and city clerk for Barling. In addition to her parents, Cindy was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald "Gerry" DuBois.

Cindy had a wonderful, out-going personality and was loved by her family and friends. An exceptional storyteller, she had a great sense of humor and always made people laugh.

She was also part of the Invotek team that created a Dementia Care training application with the support of the National Institute of Aging and UAMS. This application will be named in Cindy's honor.
