It is with great sadness that the family of Cecilia Dewey announces her passing. Cecilia passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at Foothills Medical Centre, Calgary. She is survived by her children Deborah Dewey (Paul Swinton) and Patrick Dewey (Kathy Saunders); 5 grandchildren Cameron, Erin and Cayley Swinton, Michael (Nicole Frenette) and Christopher Dewey; and sister Rose Stock. Cecilia was predeceased by her beloved husband of 69 years, Gerald Dewey. Cecilia was born in Cudworth, SK and completed her secondary education at the St. Ursula's Academy in Bruno, SK. She then went on to Teachers College in Saskatoon and was a school teacher in Young for 30 years. After she retired, she and Gerald moved to Saskatoon where they lived for 32 years. While in Saskatoon, Cecilia was an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and an avid gardener. After Gerald’s death, she moved to Calgary to be closer to her children and grandchildren. Cecilia loved playing cards, particularly with her grandchildren and canine friend Belle, which she did every weekend while in Calgary. She also enjoyed crafts and was a lifelong learner. In the past year, she took up water colour painting and became very good. Cecilia was a very caring and social person and kept in touch with relatives and friends in Canada and around the world through regular phone calls. The family would like to thank the staff of Unit 42 at the Foothills Medical Centre for the care given to Cecilia in her last 3 weeks.
