Cindy S. Schmitt, 59, died on February 5, 2019, at St. Luke’s Northland Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Her selfless nature lives on through her generous gift of organ donation. She was recognized by the staff at St. Luke’s by being the recipient of their first ever honor walk. Cindy was born on May 18, 1959, in Scott City, the daughter of Pete and Vicky Steffens.
