May 25, 1919 – August 30, 2009

After her husband died, she moved to Calgary with the help of her sister and brother-in-law Yvonne and Ron McNeill. She moved from their home to an apartment near the old General Hospital where she worked in Central Supply until her retirement. Cecile moved into the Brentwood Care Centre in 2001, where she met her good friend Len. She and Len would make weekly trips to the Bowness Legion to enjoy a drink or two and play Nevada cards.
