Cecelia, and the privilege of knowing her, will always be precious to me. She was a strong person, not afraid to speak what she believed. She taught me so much . In the last few years we spent many hours talking by phone and we always prayed for God to forgive us where we have failed. She was humble before God and loved His Son Yeshua. I am so glad she is Home!

Thoughtful, passionate, optimistic —with an unshakable belief in God’s love—Cecelia. She will be greatly missed. Ceal truly believed God loved her and that He loved everyone else too. She lived out this reality by loving others—from the gracious consideration she showed to her own or to strangers —to the kind, generous and thoughtful gifts, cards, notes, dinner invitations and phone calls. We will miss her cards and notes sent on the Jewish holidays and on our birthdays, anniversaries or other life events. Her deep love, care and concern as well as her desire to enjoy and celebrate life blessed us all. Cecelia truly loved life and truly loved people because she truly loved God. Her passion and purpose in life —to teach that Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah—was evident in all that she did. Cecelia faithfully walked out her understanding of God’s purpose for her life—to introduce Jewish people to the Messiah—Yeshua—and to introduce Christian people to the importance of His Jewish roots. She certainly left the importance of Jesus being Jewish indelibly in my life. Cecelia also has left a portrait of courage and faith in the face of incredible suffering. Her unshakable belief in God’s love gave her a supernatural ability to wrestle with cancer and death and yet remain optimistic and in love with life throughout the battle. I love and respect Cecelia. She was an older sister to me, and though I mourn my loss here, I am happy for her to be finally with the Lord. Cecelia is a faithful, courageous, adventurous, bold, wonderful woman. I was blessed to have known her for nearly 40 years, and I will rejoice to see her in the resurrection! “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who who is coming into the world.” (John 11:25-27)

Cecilia saw it as her mission to share the Biblical holidays with her friends. She tirelessly planned and hosted many Passover Ceders with her friends and church family. It was very touching to me and a lasting memory.
Many other memories come to mind of times at church, with friends, at services, game nights, .... It is still hard to accept
Rest in peace. Shalom Cecilia!
Love,
Edel

Cecelia was a faithful friend to Bible study in our home for many years. She had a heart of mercy. One of the last visits I had with her we were blessed to share communion with a couple friends. Also I just got back from Jerusalem and anointed her with the oil and prayed for her. She gave me a 2019 calendar with the theme Abundance. How fitting she goes home with the Lord at Hanakkuh.

I'll always remember Cecilia as a sweet a giving person. She loved the Lord and she wanted others to know Him. She will be truly missed.
