On January 26, 2023, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, Cindy Wai Sin Durant, peacefully entered into heaven at her home in Fairfax, VA after a long illness. She was 59 years old.\n\nCindy was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to America with her family when she was 4 years old. The oldest of 4 sisters, she grew up in New York City. The whole family was proud to become naturalized citizens. Cindy attended Syracuse University where she met her husband, David Durant. The couple married and began their life together in Syracuse where they welcomed 4 children. Cindy remained dedicated to her education while raising her family, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Eventually, the family relocated to Fairfax, VA. She was strong and independent and placed a high value on education for herself and her children. After her youngest left for college, Cindy returned to school and graduated from Marymount University in 2014 with a Master’s Degree in Human Resources. She went on to earn a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification in 2015 and became Benefits Manager for Crestline Hotels, a job that she loved. Cindy was an avid board game player and hosted a large weekly meetup at her home. She and her husband were active members of Cedar Run Community church. Her favorite place to be was enjoying family vacations in Duck, NC with her husband, children, and grandchildren.\n\nLeft to cherish her memory are her husband, David Durant; children, Kimberly (Jesiah) McCann, Steven (Kiersten) Durant, Eric (Joe) Durant, Laura Durant; parents, Nelson and Yin Kuen Ma; sisters, Wendy (Andrew) Pfiester, Mei Mei Stark, Jeannie (Aaron) Gasper; and 4 grandchildren.\n\nA memorial service will be held at Cedar Run Community Church in Herndon, VA on Saturday, March 18 at 1pm.
