Born in Toronto to Madeline and John Sheehan, Cecile grew up in Oshawa remaining close throughout her life to her family and community. 

A cherished sister to Lorraine (Ray), Camille (late George). Cecile was dearly loved by her husband of 50 years to Robert (Bob). She was the devoted mother of Rob (Tara) and Andrea (Johnny) and cherished as grandma to Robbie, Osmund, Sophia, and Miles.

Cecile was a caring aunt and adored her nieces and nephews.  She was blessed with a wonderful group of friends who she loved dearly.

She was predeceased by her sister Anne (Frank) and brother Ted (Dawna), and her parents Madeline and John.

Cecile’s life was dedicated to helping others through both her work and her faith. She loved her parish at St. Therese in Courtice where she could be found regularly at mass, in prayer groups or volunteering. Whether administering communion as a Eucharistic Minister to the sick and seniors, or as part of a decorating team she loved her parish and loved sharing and teaching others about her faith. Cecile spent several years with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program and felt honoured to introduce and help others on their journey to receive their sacraments and become part of the Catholic Church.
