October 20, 1923 – Sunday, March 8, 2015

Cecile Marie (Desjardins) Hill, passed away on March 8, 2015, surrounded by her loving family and her wonderful caregivers at Cottagewood. Born October 20, 1923, in Fort Kent, Maine, she was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Lizzy) Desjardins and sister to nine siblings.

Cecile lived every day with compassion, laughter and grace, and was an inspiration to those who knew her. She was free spirited, exceptionally kind and a gifted conversationalist. Her greatest joy was helping other people, and she accepted and cared for everyone she met without judgment. Though she will be deeply missed, her spirit lives on in the hearts of her family and those who knew her.

Cecile is proceeded in death by her husband, Norman. She is survived by her two children: Terry (Jane Sullivan) Hill of Duluth, Minnesota, and Sharon (David) Johnson of Buffalo, Minnesota; four grandchildren, Kristina, Andrew, Allison and Travis; and four great-grandchildren, Christian, Matthew, Ezra and Leo.

Our family is grateful for the loving care she received from all of the staff at Cottagewood Memory Care in Buffalo.

    So sorry terry and Sharon. When I was younger, I always looked forward when your mom came to new Canada.we’d all gather at uncle john’s house the night before she left to go back home. It was funny the stories she told about growing up in that house with my dad and her other siblings. She will be dearly missed by all. My prayers are with you.
