In memory of
Cynthia (Cindy) Roper Bankester, 59, of Birmingham, AL passed away Jan. 6 due to lung cancer. She was born Sept. 13, 1959 in Trussville, AL to Jewell and Murray Roper. Cindy was happiest at the beach, especially her favorite place - St. Thomas. She could often be found in the kitchen dancing to her favorite music and cooking delicious meals. She loved generously and cared deeply for others. Her unique sense of humor will be sorely missed. Most of all she loved her beloved daughter and grandchildren. She is survived by her daughter, Katie (Brad) Tapscott; her grandchildren, Ellie and Tate Tapscott; her sisters, Janice (George) Whitman-Petrie; Reba (Tom) Norwood and Sonja (Phil) Foster and loving nephews and niece.
