GILLETT, Cecelia (nee Healey)

Oct 30, 1929 – Jun 16, 2015

Cecelia passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of June 16, 2015 at The Good Samaritan Wexford Creek

Complex Care in Nanaimo. Cecelia was predeceased by her husband Don (2008) after being married for 58 years. She is survived by her children; Don, Janice, Kevin and Keith and their respective spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Cecelia was a surprising woman who was a very determined individual. She was an inspiration for many who suffer from Type 1 Diabetes and she set a great example for how to look after yourself.

Cecelia’s life revolved around family and Church, but mostly she was devoted to her husband with whom she can now rejoin in Heaven. She was also a member of the CWL at St. Mary’s Parish in Ladysmith.

The family would like to thank those who took special care of her in her last few years. She was surrounded and blessed by exceptional and kind caregivers.

Prayers will be held for Cecelia on Friday, June 26th at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church at 7 pm.

Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, June 27th, 2015 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 1132 – 4th Avenue, Ladysmith BC at 11 am. Mass will be conducted by Father Tony Gonsalves.
