Most recently, she worked at Professional Infusion Pharmacy and Geneva Woods Heath Care Services. Her family wrote: "She loved animals, particularly her dog, Bayley, and her cat, Elvis. Cindy and Bayley were dedicated walking companions. She enjoyed reading, walking and spending time with her family, especially her nieces and nephews. "Cindy will be remembered as a sweet and kind person by all who knew her and she will be greatly missed by those closest to her, especially her true love and best friend, Rodney. At Professional Infusion Pharmacy, she held a special place in the hearts of co-workers and clientele alike." Mrs. Bales is survived by her husband of 27 years, Rodney Bales; mother, Patricia Neilson; mother-in-law, Lois Wright-Swank of Mabank, Texas; stepfather, Daniel Mariniello of East Aurora, N.Y.; brothers and sisters-in-law, Steve and Lori Neilson of Anchorage, Bruce and Dusty Neilson of Clam Gulch, and Michael and Jamie Neilson of Seattle; sister and brother-in-law, Christel and Rob Jones of Anchorage; nieces and nephews, Scott and Jocelyn Jelich, John, Kacie and Collin Neilson, and Alison and Laura Jones, all of Anchorage, Libby Spangler of Seattle; uncles and aunts, Tom and Vicki Packer of Anchorage, and Ron and Joy Packer of Cincinnati; and cousins, Michelle Myers, Heather Horton and David Packer of Anchorage.
