Cindy Ann (Hughley Weaver) Larson, of Isle, formerly of Mora, died on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021, at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis from complications of COVID-19. She was 64 years old.

She was born the second child of four on May 6, 1957, in Rochester, to Ernie and LaVonne (Silker) Butts. Cindy grew up in Austin with her siblings, Carol, Sue and Bill.  She was united in marriage to David Hughley in 1976. That marriage resulted in three children, Joshua, Jeffrey and Jessica. The couple moved their family to a farm in Isle in 1984, where they raised their family until they separated.

She married Jerome Weaver in 2003. She and her husband operated CJs Resort in Wahkon during their life together until he became ill, and she was widowed in 2009. The couple lived in Mora.

She returned to the farm in Isle in 2019. She then married Jesse Larson on June 30, 2020.

She was a caregiver with the Volunteers of America for 24 years. She had a passion for the individuals she cared for. Each of them became like family to her.  She started her career with the VOA in Wahkon, where she had the pleasure of working with one of her closest friends, Sue Kingsbury. She then spent many years caring for the residents in Princeton and most recently was working in Milaca.  She made the transition to Milaca to support the needs of Lori Kent who she had been taking care of for 18 years. Lori became like a daughter to her.

The things that brought her the most enjoyment in her life were the people in it. She loved spending as much time with her grandchildren as she could. She would take them to movies, the park, water parks or simply just her home where they could snuggle and play.  

She also enjoyed her “girls’ day” with her sisters, Carol and Sue, and sister-in-law, Jen. They would spend the day shopping at the Mall of America followed by the latest movie release. 

She simply loved living and being with the people she cared most about. For those that knew her, they knew that she was the kindest, most giving person. 

She was a regular attendee at Emmanuel Baptist Church where she was baptized in Christ in 2019.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernie, and LaVonne Butts; sister, Carol Yarwood; son, Jeffery Hughley; and former husband, Jerry Weaver.

She is survived by her loving husband, Jesse Larson; son, Joshua (Tina) Hughley; daughter, Jessica (Leslie) Hughley-Sadler; grandchildren, Alexander Hughley, Emily Hughley, Cooper Bredeson, Kalyn Faulkner, Beckett Bredeson, Ryan Utz, Hallie Hughley and Kota Hughley; sister, Susan Olson (Don Jackels); brother, William (Jennifer) Butts; brother-in-law, Vern Yarwood; Jesse’s parents, Mark and Michele Larson; Jesse’s children, Kyle (April) Larson, Kayla (Don) Utz, Keith (Kayla) Larson and Dylan (Leah) Czech; many other relatives and countless friends.

A funeral service was held on Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021, at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Mora with Pastor Mike Rue and Pastor Dave Everson officiating. Burial was at Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls. Arrangements were entrusted to the Akkerman Ingebrand Funeral Home of Mora. Condolences may be posted at
