Cindy Sue Basler, age 56 of Polson, lost her battle with cancer, passing away peacefully in her home with family Sunday, December 30, 2012.
She was born September 21, 1956 in Billings, MT to Lenard and Helen Temanson. Cindy and her family lived many places in her young years, most time being spent between Dayton, MT and Alaska.

That summer she met Bruce Basler and they were married October 4th of that same year.
Bruce and Cindy were partners in both life and work. She helped run the family beekeeping business while providing a home for her family. She was an avid quilter and reader, but also enjoyed time outside where she could often be found enjoying a long walk. In recent years, she also attended the cancer support meetings and made many special friends there.
