Cecile (nee LeNabat)

Born April 15, 1922, St. Boniface, Manitoba. Died January 8, 2013, Nanaimo, BC.

A founder and driving force behind the Surrey Food Bank and the Blue Box Recycling Program, Cecile passed peacefully Tuesday, January 8, 2013.

Her active participation in politics, opera and musical theater brought her numerous accolades over the years, but she was most proud of her flower gardens and the many prizes and ribbons she won as a member of the Nanaimo Horticultural Society.

Predeceased by her husband, Cecile leaves her daughter, sister, niece and two nephews. No service by request.
