Cynthia E. Westhoelter (nee Huether), 80, of Washington, passed away on Monday, April 8, 2019, at her home. She was born in Washington, Missouri on June 3, 1938, to the late Charles and Virginia (nee Kampschroeder) Huether and was united in marriage to Bernie Westhoelter on January 7, 1956, in St. Louis, Missouri. Cynthia stayed active with her beloved Boston Terrier dogs in obedience, agility, and conformation competition for many years. The close bond that she forged through partnerships with her dogs is evidenced by the ribbons, photographs, and trophies that graced the walls of their home. She also enjoyed gardening and flower arranging, often exhibiting her iris arrangements at the Washington Town and Country Fair.
