Cecelia A. Schurman Sparks (nee Dwyer)

Date de décès : 10 juillet 2013

With great sorrow, Cecelia’s family announces that, on July 10, 2013, this wonderful woman left us. We celebrate the fact that her suffering has ended, she leaves us with a legacy of loyalty and unconditional love.
Born in Bell Island, Newfoundland, she lived in Boston, New York, and Toronto before settling in Montréal for life. Predeceased in 1960 by the love of her life, James Hartt Schurman; and in 1997 by her companion of many years Norman Thomas Sparks; by her in-laws Hulbert Hartt Schurman and Leola Schurman (nee Paige) with whom she shared many happy times and special moments; by her parents John and Johanna Dwyer (nee Kelly), her brothers Vincent, William, Frank and Peter; her sisters Mae (Maude), Mary, Annie, Kathleen, and Lillian.
She leaves in mourning her daughters, whom she loved to call the ‘light of her life’, Elizabeth Schurman (Daniel Camus) of Paris, France, and Isabel Schurman (Bernard Grenier) of Montréal; her beloved niece Madonna (Donna) Dwyer of Brossard, Québec; her cherished granddaughters Emma Caroline Schurman-Grenier and Julia Rose Camus; her sisters Isabel (the late John Morris) and Doris (the late Jack Cobb); her sister-in-law Jenny Dwyer; her brother-in-law Kevin O’Neil; and so many nieces and nephews to whom she was their greatly loved ‘Aunt Dolly’. Also very special to her heart: Geneviève Grenier, Allen Mallette, Terry Dimter and Sue Refaat.
Many thanks to her caregivers of the last three weeks, Glenda, Kris, Marivic, Gloria and Sharida, and to the wonderful team at the West Island Palliative Care Residence where she spent her last two days. Cremation will be followed by a private graveside service at a date as yet undetermined. May she rest in peace.
