Cecilia was a kind and gentle person with a terrific sense of humour and a great love for her family. She was born in Russia and traveled with her family to Canada in 1928 where they settled on a homestead in Saskatchewan. She married Vivian McLenaghan and they resided in Wilkie, SK where they raised their six children. She worked for many years as a nurse’s assistant in Wilkie Union Hospital and at the Battlefords Regional Care Centre. She loved flower gardening, sewing, crocheting and had a passion for china, crystal and jewelry. She hosted many family gatherings and her home was always open to family and friends. Her famous line was “Don’t work too Hard”. Cecilia has gone with Jesus but will be forever loved.
The family would like to thank Harwood Manor for the excellent care and services provided to her during the time she made it her home. If friends desire, memorial donations may be made directly to Harwood Manor Recreation Fund – 2691 Clements Dr, North Battleford, SK S9A 1H9.
