Cindy Lou (Tollakson) Mau
Heyer Anvil Cloud at Sunset

On Friday, October 4, 2019 Cindy Lou (Tollakson) Mau went home to be with her heavenly father after a courageous battle with cancer. Cindy was born November 11, 1957 in Freeport, IL, the first daughter of Ted and Darlene Tollakson. Cindy graduated Blackhawk high school in 1975 and married her husband Steve Mau on June 21, 1975. They farmed in South Wayne ever since. Cindy most enjoyed tending to her flowers, her beloved cats, and most lovingly, spending time and caring for her six grandchildren, Thomas, Caroline, Jovie, Jack, Ivory and Vince.

Cindy is survived by her husband Steve, children Ben (Ellen) Mau of Argyle, Daniel (Crystal) Mau of Monroe, Josh (Alyssa) Mau of South Wayne, and Caitlin Mau, Dubuque, IA. Cindy also leaves her team of sisters and a brother, Debbie (Mike) Mau of Argyle, Marne (Steve) Bechtolt of South Wayne, Kim (Mark) Stalker of Kenosha, Greg Tollakson of South Wayne, Robin (Rick) Nafzger of Monroe, Jodi (Tim) Schliem of South Wayne, and Patty (Todd) Ritschard of South Wayne; and many nieces and nephews. Cindy was preceded in death by her brother Gary, paternal grandparents Harvey and Blanche (Seffrood) Tollakson and Maternal grandparents Ralph and Helen (Kaiser) Hurst.

A memorial fund has been established for her granddaughter Jovie Mau. Jovie experiences a severe form of cerebral palsy and this is one-way Cindy can continue caring for her. Cindy has touched so many of us in her life and despite sorely missing her, we know she now experiences complete wholeness in God's love.
