Cecilia was a longtime parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Joliet. She was the last surviving member of the Young Junior Misses and enjoyed all of her time spent with the club. Cecilia was an excellent cook and loved to put on a great meal for her family. She was a talented arts and crafts artist and enjoyed sharing stories about her earlier years. The stories that she told date back to the depression era and always kept the families interest. Cecilia had a great laugh and an amazing sense of humor, which will never be forgotten.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Cecilia’s name to Joliet Area Community Hospice or Rainbow Hospice would be appreciated.
A celebration of Cecilia’s life will begin on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 with a visitation at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Joliet from 10:00 a.m. until the time of Mass of Christian Burial to be held at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at SS Cyril and Methodius Cemetery in Joliet.
