Cynthia Ellen Lukovski passed away peacefully into the arms of her Saviour on December 31, 2023 after a courageous battle against breast cancer. Born in Youngstown, Ohio on June 25, 1945 to Robert and Laverne (McCreery) Metzger, she was the older sister of Robert Metzger who preceded her in death.
Cindy graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School and began working thereafter. She married the love of her life, (Paul) Richard Lukovski and moved to Rittman, and later to Wadsworth, Ohio to raise her family. Cindy’s life took an unexpected turn when she was widowed at the age of forty-eight. With no prior experience, Cindy immediately took over the family’s industrial tooling distribution business at B&G Supply in Akron, Ohio. Through hard work, determination and sometimes while fighting back tears, Cindy learned the world of industrial tooling and grew to become a valued resource to her clients, many of whom would go on to become her friends. She continued to build on what her husband started and created a thriving business, where she worked until her retirement. Her greatest source of pride was her family. She lived for her family, taking immense joy in seeing them flourish.
Mother of Scott (Mandi), Twins Kelly Wright (Ian) and Brett (Julie), Carey (Dave Wesig) and grandmother to Meredith, Gretchen, Mitchell and Kyle. Cindy was happiest when her family was together, be it a weekend of boating at Lake Erie or gathering for a holiday meal while sharing stories and reminiscing.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all of the providers at Summa Health who prioritized Cindy’s comfort and dignity throughout her illness.
The family will receive friends for visitation at the Hilliard-Rospert Funeral Home, 174 N. Lyman St., Wadsworth, Ohio on Monday, January 8, 2024 from 4:00pm – 8:00pm. Funeral Mass will be held 11:00AM on Tuesday, January 9, 2024 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 260 Broad St. Wadsworth, Ohio. Private burial will be at a later date.
