Cindy Newhall[KHTS] – Cindy Newhall-Weyant died in her home in Costa Mesa early Tuesday morning after a long battle with multiple sclerosis, according to family members.

She was 51 years old at the time of her death, which was determined to be caused by her disease.
Newhall-Weyant was a fifth generation descendant of Henry Mayo Newhall and the granddaughter of Scott and Ruth Newhall, who once owned the Signal newspaper in Santa Clarita.

“She was a light bulb, a lightening rod that everybody gravitated to,” said Skip Newhall, Newhall-Weyant’s father. “She never met a person that didn’t like her; everybody really adored the gal.”

Newhall-Weyant is survived by her father, her husband Jeff Weyant, and her three children, Christopher and Matthew Halbasch from a former marriage and Derek Weyant.

Newhall-Weyant was training to be a marathon runner when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 15 years ago.

    Time is so infinite,
    so insufficient,
    preciously coveted,
    and injudiciously distributed by the fates.

    What a wonderful person to have
    known a bit for a while, and from
    that to draw smiles in remembrance.

    Sending out smiles to last a while,
    in memory of this wonderful, vibrant,
    smart, funny person.
