BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Cynthia Janne (Patterson) Wagner of West Melbourne, FL, died at William Childs Hospice House (Palm Bay, FL) on January 15, 2024.

She was born in Fort Madison, IA on March 14, 1952 to E.A. (Pat) and Eilene Patterson.

After her retirement, she and her husband, Bob, moved to West Melbourne, FL where they both enjoyed ministering to seafarers at Canaveral Port Ministry. Besides her passion for the Lord (both at Ministry and at Calvary Chapel), Cindy enjoyed introducing her friends and family to Kennedy Space Center, rocket launches, and Disney World.
