Cecilia's passion was her home and family and she took it
She was known far and wide for her cooking and hospitality.
Being a woman of tradition, rabbit pie and dark fruit cakes were favored after midnight mass and enjoyed by many.
Anyone seeking refuge or a hot meal was never turned away. Like her father always said "There is lots of room upstairs.
Being a devout Catholic, mom never missed Mass and loved to
sing in the choir.
