Cecile N. St. Pierre
Cecile N. St. Pierre, better known as “Granny” to her family, pursued an active life participating in numerous sports activities, but her love of tennis was life-long. She was frequently seen playing a weekly round of golf or participating in a doubles match at an indoor or outdoor court.
Granny was a very active gardener in her later years, known for her tireless hours spent outside tenderly caring for her flowers and shrubs that surrounded her home. She could be easily found in the early morning hours walking the track at Wareham High School with her later years walking inside Target getting her daily one mile of exercise, an activity that she continued well in her 95th year of life.
Granny did it her way and you always knew where she stood. Fiercely independent but always displaying support and warmth towards her family members and affairs throughout her life. Her cooking secrets were finally given to her beloved granddaughter Nicole with the price being a sample meal to make sure all was right! She bestowed a fierce sense of honesty and doing one’s ultimate best as pride in one’s self was essential in leading a good life. Her grandson Shawn was always there to help Granny, for family life was a cornerstone of her life.
Granny will be sorely missed by her son Carl and daughter-in-law Janice, and her two grandchildren, Nicole and Joshua D’Ambrosio and Shawn and Heather St. Pierre, and her great grandchildren Zachary and Julia. She has joined the rest of her family being the last survivor. I know she’s already played a few sets of tennis and taken a stroll around a weed-less flower garden, as she awaits to be reunited in the future with the remainder of her surviving family. Rest in peace mother dear. “Your son little one, Carl.”
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tues., Apr. 6th at St. Patrick’s Church, High St., Wareham at 10 a.m. Interment will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery, New Bedford. Visiting hours have been omitted.
