In Memory of
1936 – 2016
On Saturday, January 16, 2016, the Angels came to take Cecile by the hand peacefully, with her family by her side. Cecile was born at Eastend, Saskatchewan on April 1, 1936. She grew up and attended a little school called Fairwell Creek. She married Len Gallot in 1956 and they farmed in Saskatchewan until 1966. Then they moved to Vavenby, BC with their five children. Cecile loved to ride horses and tend to the cows. She was a teacher, school bus driver, a cook and a business woman. However, her true love was her family and the farm.
Cecile was predeceased by her husband Len, her parents, brother Lewis, son Gary in infancy and brother-in-law Bud Dovel.
Cecile leaves behind daughters Debra (grandsons Robert and Ryan); Gloria (Len) (granddaughters Tara and Lindsey); Cindy (grandchildren Kyle and Jenna); sons Bruce (grandsons Randy and Kohl) and Larry (granddaughters Lawrinda and Shawna). Cecile also leaves behind 11 great grandchildren.
Goodbyes are not forever
Goodbyes are not the end
They simply mean
I’ll miss you until
We meet again.
There will be a celebration of Cecile’s life by her family and friends to be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Drake Cremation & Funeral Services, Clearwater, BC, 250-674-3030
