Obituary

Cindy Lee Portigo slipped into the loving arms of our Lord on December 19, 2017 at the age of 52 in Port Orange Florida. Cindy was born in Blue Island, Illinois on 08-18-1965 to Gerald and Diane Flassig. Cindy grew up in Alsip, Illinois before moving with her family to Port Orange, Florida in 1978. Cindy worked as a 5th grade science teacher at Champion Elementary School in Daytona Beach, Florida. Cindy loved teaching and was well respected by her peers. Cindy was very creative in developing educational resources. Cindy loved the beach, loved camping, and liked to spend her vacations camping on the beach in the Florida Keys. On 03-31-97 Cindy gave birth to her only child, Tanner Adam Portigo. Tanner was Cindy’s pride and joy. She affectionately referred to him as her “Tanman.” Cindy is survived by her son, Tanner Portigo, brother Alan Flassig and his wife Ann, sister Susan Flassig, brother Cliff Flassig, sister Natasha Whalen and her husband William, nephews Corey Davis and Matthew Flassig, nieces Lindsey Flassig and Alison Whalen, as well as many extended family members and friends. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Baldwin Brothers Heritage Place, 620 Dunlawton Avenue, Port Orange, FL 32127 on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in Cindy’s honor to Halifax Health Hospice, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange, Florida 32129.

    Smiling, wind in our hair, sun on our faces. I love you. My hugs to Tanner, Sue, Alan, Tasha, Cliff, Ann, all of you all. The students, the teachers, all of us. "Here's  the deal" you said to me "Life's too short"

    Rest in paradise, you were the greatest teacher any kid would be able to have, you were always passionate about teaching me and my class of 2014. Even then no matter how many characters I type it won’t be enough, to truly express how much I miss and loved you.
