Cynthia Gale Self of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma passed away peacefully on February 22, 2024.

 

Cindy was born to her mother Sarah Jane Morgan and her father Danny Mac Morgan on December 6, 1962 in Huntsville, Alabama. She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Lois Williams of Pensacola, FL, her mother, Sarah Morgan of Pensacola, FL, her father, Danny Morgan of Monroeville, AL, and her younger brother, Daniel Eric Morgan.

 

She is survived by her children, Jasmine Miller of Jones OK and Christopher Self of Oklahoma City, OK, brother Sam Morgan of Atlanta, GA, and three grandchildren, Penelope, Valerie, and Nicholas.

 

At the age of 18 in December of 1980, Cindy joined the United States Marine Corps. She served the United States of America until a few months prior to giving birth to her daughter in 1983. She loved telling stories of her time in Okinawa, Japan and her experiences with the food and culture. Riding motorcycles became a passion of hers, as she would ride along the coastline of California. She met and married fellow marine, Michael E Zamudio-Self, who shared her love of motorcycles, after just a few months of dating. Cindy and Michael moved together to Oklahoma City to be near his family and start their own. Soon after moving, she started working as a correctional officer for the State of Oklahoma and did so for over 15 years. Cindy had many joys in life, which included being a mother to her children. She raised Jasmine and Christopher with every bit of her heart and soul. She absolutely loved riding motorcycles and letting the wind blow through her hair. She became part of the Oklahoma City motorcycle community. She wasloved and admired by all who knew her. She loved to sing and could turn every head in the room when she started belting out Desperado during karaoke. She often participated in open mic nights as well. Her laugh was contagious and her smile lit up a room. She loved beadwork and jewelry making and often gifted these handcrafted items to friends and family. She loved animals and almost always had a dog. Later in life, she even acquired a stray cat or two.

 

Cindy was an active member of the AA community in Moore, Oklahoma for over 17 years as she was raising her children. However, soon after they were grown and had left the house, she relapsed into her alcoholism and soon thereafter into her darkest years with drug abuse. They say that addiction does not discriminate and that was never truer for her. This mother, sister, and friend fought her battle until the end. As she left this world, she is finally at peace. We will choose to remember her big heart, her beaming smile, her infectious laughter, her melodic voice, and her warm and genuine embrace. The values she instilled in her children will never be forgotten including one of her favorite mantras, “Enjoy the little things in life for someday you will realize

they were the big things”.

 

Ride free, soar with the wind, and do so in peace knowing you were loved and never alone.
