Cynthia Sue (Halpert) Cardillo, 62, of Hopkinton, passed away Wednesday, October 4, 2017 surrounded by her close circle of family and friends. Born in Boston, she grew up in Chestnut Hill and was the daughter of the late Ruth Ann (Janis) and Charles Lawrence Halpert. She was the beloved wife of twenty-five years to John David Cardillo of Hopkinton and loving mother of Jason P. Cardillo of Brighton, and Kimberly A. Cardillo of Hopkinton.
Cindy’s life work as a Physical Therapist and healer brought joy and comfort to so many through her life and her 35-year practice – Rowe Physical Therapy of Newton, Wellesley and Hopkinton. Her spiritual energy, love of the outdoors, and enthusiasm for health was infectious to all those around her. Cindy was also extremely passionate and instrumental in helping pass a legislative bill that requires doctors to inform their patients on whether or not they have dense breast tissue so that they can have a 3D mammogram in order to get early and accurate results. Cindy was truly loved by so many, especially those she touched and helped heal. The family also wishes to thank all of those who cared for her over the years.
Cindy will be lovingly remembered by her husband, her two children; her siblings, Jon Halpert and his wife Deborah and Janis Halpert Maloney and her husband Michael all of Needham; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.
Services will take place on Sunday, October 8th at 12:30pm at Temple B’nai Shalom, 117 East Main St. Westborough. The family will share in a celebration of Cindy’s life and sit shiva at their home on Monday, October 9th from 2pm – 9pm. Kaddish will be recited at 7:30pm.
