It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and sister. A kind, honest and gentle soul has gone to rest. Cecile was born in Hanna, Alberta to Stephen and Katherine Brunner, the eldest of 6 children. The family moved to British Columbia in 1936. It was in Maple Ridge that Cecile met and married the love of her life, Bill, and together they raised two boys. Cecile worked for numerous businesses in town including the family bakery and her brother Don’s butcher shop. Taking time off to raise her family she returned to school and studied bookkeeping and worked at Haney Iron Works until her retirement. She was a volunteer at the Ridge Meadows Hospital Gift Shop for many years.
Cecile’s family was most important to her. She and Bill traveled in their motor home enjoying the places it took them and their time together. She was patient and loving with her grandchildren and spent many days just being Grandma.In her later years she enjoyed reading, walking daily and the company of family. Predeceased by her parents, her husband Bill and her brothers Bill and Don. Survived by her two sons Robert (Katherine) and Dale (Sharon), her sisters Ann, Clare and Addalin. She also leaves 6 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
