Her guidance will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Perry, Jeffery, Kimberly, Kevin, Natalie and their spouses. Proud great-grandmother to Taylor, James, Sydney, Cameron and Quincy. After a year filled with physical challenges, Cecile was prepared to be reunited with her husband, her parents, siblings, on great-grandson Nicolas (deceased 2005), and most of all, her treasured son Maurice Jr. (deceased 1996). Her wit, wisdom and support will be greatly missed, but we are comforted knowing she is now resting at peace with her strength and independence replenished. Cecile was very appreciated of the Catholic services offered to her daily at St. Joseph’s Villa by Father Dumoulin and the volunteers. To honour Cecile’s previously expressed wishes, there was no visitation. A private family service was held in Nativity Parish Cemetery. If so desired, contributions in her memory made to Pastoral Services c/o St. Joseph’s Villa, 14 York St., Cornwall ON K6J 5T2 would be very much appreciated by the family.
