Ten days shy of her 91st birthday
Cecilia Teresa Nolan (nee O’Reilly) passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family. Predeceased by her husband Jack, siblings Mary, Ambrose, Ann, Pat, Kathy, John, Shirley and Ruth. Leaving to mourn are her children Anne (Joe), John (Liz), Larry
(Sharon), Mary (Rod), Cathy (Tom), grandchildren Jennifer, Shanna, Julie, Heather, Andrew, Suzanne, Alison, Michael, Emma, Joanna, Luke and Alex, and great grandchildren Alexa, Molly, Marley, and Edgar. She’ll also be missed by her extended family and a large
circle of friends.

Her unwavering priorities were
her family and her faith, although she’d never shy away from a good game of 120’s. She was famous for her dislike of reneging, the fifteen bid, and insisting that a card laid was a card played. She never met a hot dog she didn’t like - especially Lar’s Sweet
Bay hotdogs. Her calm dignity and sense of humour were ever present.

Born in Corner Brook, the daughter of a Railway engineer, as a teenager Cecilia moved with her family to Bishop’s Falls. From there she went to St John’s to complete her nurse’s training at St. Clare’s Hospital. She married and raised her family in post-war Gander and worked as a nursing supervisor
for many years at James Paton Memorial Hospital. In the past ten years Cecilia returned to St John’s and most recently lived at Kenny’s Pond where she made wonderful friends.

Thanks to the staff of Kenny’s
Pond and the Health Science Complex for their impeccable care. Her final days were calm and comfortable.

Visitation will take place between
5:00pm and 9:00 pm at Stacey’s Funeral Home in Gander on Thursday, February 13th. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church at 11:00 am on Friday, February 14th.

I met Cecilia at Kenny’s Pond though my late father, Edward Murphy, who died a few weeks before her passing. Dad used to drive a few of the ladies from Kenny’s to Sunday Mass. Some time after he could no longer drive, I was able to fill in. Your Mom was such a quiet, faithful woman. But she was no shrinking violet: she had an opinion and didn’t mind sharing it, again in her own quiet, unassuming way. I was so saddened to see her obituary and I share in your loss.

My prayers and sympathy to Celie's family. I remember her as a caring nurse, a very witty, fun loving person and undoubtedly a wonderful mother. She was well respected at the old hospital and present at the birth of one of children. She was called "squeak"! Everybody loved Celie. She was a neighbour and a good friend of my sister and parents as well. RIP, gentle lady.

We are saddened to hear of your mom's passing. We have wonderful memories of your mom. She was such a kind, friendly and gentle lady. Mom will never forget how good your mother was to her when she was in the hospital having Glen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
God bless,
