lasting and special friendships while there.
Cecilia loved travelling and was
fortunate enough to have family members live in different parts of the
world over the years. Some of her favorite adventures included two
trips to Ireland with family; numerous trips to Virginia, and Ontario,
and occasional trips to the Dominican Republic, Central America, North
Carolina, and Alberta to visit her children, grandchildren and their
families. She also had some very memorable train trips.
She was an avid baker, making the
best apple pies and strawberry jam. She also loved to knit, gifting
mittens, sweaters and so many special things to family members.
She was one of the biggest fans of
the Toronto Blue Jays and loved her old Country Music. In her later
years she always enjoyed local drives, particularly to Whycocomagh for
her favourite bread and pastries. Cecilia had an incredible green
thumb, taking great pride in her beautiful flowers.
loved making cherished memories with her family during Christmas and
will be dearly missed by so many.
