Mindi Lou Cash Weber passed away at the age of 57 at 10:00 PM on Sunday, July 18th, 2021, after a rollercoaster of a battle with her health.
Mindi was born at the Balboa Naval Hospital in Coronado, San Diego, California on November 3rd, 1963. She was the first born and the only girl of six children to Kathy Stevenson and Don Cash. She may have been born with a bit of a fiesty spirit.
After 2 years while her Father was stationed with the Navy, they moved back to Salt Lake City, Utah and then onto a farm in the Cleveland area in Ohio.
At the age of 14 she returned to Salt Lake City, Utah and stayed within the valley for the remainder of her life.
At 18 she was married to her first husband, Bill Weber, and together they had two girls: Tifanie and Holly. They ended up divorcing and some time after that she had her third daughter, Adrienne, who, once she was born, was adopted by a very loving family. It was difficult for Mindi to make this decision but felt that it was better for this daughter to be able to grow up in more stable circumstances.
She was determined to pick her life up, so Mindi worked hard and succeeded in getting her GED and an Associates Degree. She then started studying to become a Paralegal. Her dedication to work and school had kept her from home, but her children had a hard time so she decided she needed to put her kids first and sadly stopped this pursuit.
She worked as a Payroll Administrator at various companies such as Hillcrest Care Center (for adults with disabilities), C.R. England and Intel. She enjoyed playing on the company softball teams’, usually as their 3rd baseman.
She then met and married her second husband and had a son named Dallyn. Shortly afterwards, they divorced. Mindi had to try and pick up extra work in the evenings to make up for not receiving any child support, so her children tagged along to help her clean offices and houses to make ends meet.
Her favorite title was "Grandma". She LOVED to spoil grandchildren with love and give them things to do. She really enjoyed watching them have fun. They always left her feeling loved and cherished.
She was also an amazing cook. She loved to cook and share it with others. She was an avid scrapbooker. She enjoyed the mountains, whether it was the drive, camping or fishing. Even road trips were always highly encouraged.
In 2013 she suffered a massive stroke after going into diabetic shock along with other health complications and Dallyn was the one who found her and immediately got help. She had to have her legs amputated to try to stay alive. She had a hereditary blood clotting disorder called Factor 5 Leiden and was Heparin resistant which made things very difficult.
Mindi wasn't ready to go. She fought and persevered. The stroke left her with paralysis of her right side, however, doctor's wondered if because she was left-handed, if that had been why she was able to regain her speech. What a wonderful blessing it was. She persevered to the best of her abilities and had a whole new view on life and fought hard for more time to be here with us.
During this time many precious relationships were rekindled and she was able to watch her children and grandchildren grow into wonderful (and little) people as well as restore relationships with her brothers and parents.
One of the biggest rekindlings in just this last year was with her daughter, Adrienne. This was the beautiful girl that Mindi gave birth to 30 yrs ago. We deeply adore Adrienne who has brought so much joy to her and the rest of the family. She is just what Mindi’s soul was waiting for and needed before she could finally rest.
We are greatly saddened but joyous she is no longer in pain and for the beautiful reunion with her two brothers, Steve and Don Cash, mother Kathy Stevenson Cash, first husband Bill Weber, Aunt Jo-Ellen along with grandparents and others who have passed before her.
She is survived by her father, brothers - Jared (Lisa), Justin and Nate (Ani) Cash, children - Tifanie (Tyler) Fitzgerald, Holly (Matt) Nielson, Adrienne Davis and Dallyn (Angelene) Riddick, Grandchildren - Abby, Tom, Hannah, Katie, Colten, Conner, Lilly and Preston and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the healthcare team at Spring Creek Care Center of Salt Lake City, Utah, for their care over the last 7 1/2 years of her life. Especially David, her favorite CNA, and Josie who has looked over her in different positions while there.
