Cindy Maycock

She was surrounded by her loving family in Ocean Pines. Cindy was born on June 4, 1936, in Ripley, Derbyshire, England. She grew up in Ripley and later married her childhood sweetheart, the late Dr. John Norman Maycock, an internationally recognized scientist. In 1961, Cindy made the bold decision to move to the United States with her husband, settling in Catonsville. Norman called Cindy his hero for taking such a leap of faith with him. Together, they raised their two daughters, Susan Pamela and Sally Patricia.

A lifelong athlete, Cindy found her passion in field hockey. She joined the Baltimore Field Hockey Association and excelled as a goalie. Her dedication and love for the game led her to serve as the President of the association for an impressive 30 years. Cindy was also a valued member of the Southeast Field Hockey Tournament Team, where she hosted a pre-Thanksgiving feast for her teammates and friends every year.

After retiring from field hockey, Cindy discovered new passions. She enjoyed flounder fishing and clamming on her boat, “Sally Sue.” She was a longtime active member of the Maryland Kennel Club and Ocean City Golf Club, where she served as the Hospitality Chairperson and President of the Nine Hole Ladies, respectively. Cindy was also a devoted fan of the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens.
“Miss Cindy,” an affectionate moniker given to her by her daughters’ friends, will be best remembered for her sense of humor, her ability to tell a joke, and her warm hugs. She had a love for music, played the organ, and possessed a beautiful soprano voice. Her sparkling blue eyes and love for Christmas and a roaring fire brought joy to those around her. Cindy’s dinner table was always welcome to all.

She is survived by her daughter Susan and son-in-law John Mendoza; grandchildren Alexandra (Christian) Pallazola of Scituate, Mass., Captain Ian (Camille) Mendoza of Surf City, N.C. and Jack and Anna Watsic of Mt.
