Cecilia’s life was tragically cut short and she will forever be missed by countless friends, colleagues and those whose lives she touched in one form or another sharing her boundless love for life. Being in the service industry, her lust for life was born out of the love of doing for others.
Her love of family sustained her, especially during the Christmas holidays, always her favorite time of the year. All those who knew and loved her would agree she shared her mom’s passion of being in the kitchen surrounded by loved ones.
She loved Nova Scotia summers and spending time at the beach. She would either take someone along with her or find her own solstice; she very simply just loved the sound of the waves and the sun on her face. There probably wasn’t a beach in Nova Scotia that she hadn’t visited.
What we wouldn’t do for just one more hug, one more giggle and to hear your laughter just one more time. She made everyone feel special, because she was.
Cecilia is survived by Paul Stacey and step-daughters; Lyndsey (Mark), Jennifer (Mark) and Kourtney (Julia); her four special grandchildren; siblings, Cheryl Warren (Gary), Barbara Crouse (Terry), Brian Gorman, John Gorman (Bernadette), and Daryl Gorman (Louise); her life-long friend, Ray McKinley, who will find it hard to imagine life without her, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews from near and far.
