Memories Timeline


  1. Cheers to you, Cec! What a great ride you’ve had – glad I was a part of it for 55+ years. I will raise a glass to you, often.

  2. Lovely lady, dear friend, Cec. My sister Marlene and mother Louise loved her and cherished her friendship, as did I. May she rest in peace.
    With deepest sympathy, Rosemary Laurita.

  3. My Dear Friend and buddy Cec. So many memories. Went to the Rockies game and you always come to mind. Hans and I loved you dearly. Rest In Peace Sweetheart.

  4. Learning that this world no longer has but memories of Cec saddens us. She was one of a kind and such a dear friend to our family for many years. She had such enthusiasm always and she loved to be in touch with her friends. I still have on my bulletin board a little writing she loved starting with “Finish every day and be done with it.” Others may have it also. And she educated us all about fava beans!!!

  5. I send my sympathy to all of Cec’s Loved ones. She was a wonderful friend to my mother Betty Moyle. She encouraged my mother to get out and do many things with her for many years. I am grateful to her for this.

  6. Cec and Doc use to take me fishing as a kid. Sometimes a hatchery, sometimes a stream. Once I cast my line and caught her earlob instead of a trout. But she never flinched. Doc just pulled the hook through and that was that. She and my mom, Isabel were often up to no good and delighted in one another’s company. We all loved our times with her and will keep her memory close.
