Cecelia was fashionable and known to “dress to the nines”. She was artistic and loved wearing jewelry. Cecelia enjoyed sewing and was excellent seamstress.
Cecelia was friendly and social. She was a natural caregiver. She was especially attentive to any friends sick or in need. She was an excellent cook and often baked pies and candies as gifts for her friends. In her spare time, Cecelia loved to read.
Cecelia was a strong-willed lady. Despite her advanced age, she never lost her independence. She was even out on the town and driving the day before her passing.
In her younger years, Cecelia loved traveling and often took her camper on trips. Her favorite destination was Maine where she had deep family roots.
Cecelia spent the last 30 years of her life at Christian City in Union City where she had many dear friends. She was an Episcopalian but enjoyed attending services at Christian City on Sundays with her sister, Peggy and friend, Doris.
