CECILY SMITH 1928 – 2022 Ms. Cecily Margaret Smith of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital, on Sunday, October 23, 2022, at the age of 94 years.
Cecily was born August 14, 1928 in Wollaston. U.K., the middle child of three. She trained as a nurse and worked in the U.K as a midwife. She worked in Canada and California, and later taught nursing at Medicine Hat College.
Her true passion was her garden, where she grew the vegetables that she had learned to value so highly during the war years.
She was an avid, life-long conservationist who loved nature and animals. Through her life, she enjoyed the companionship of several dogs and cats; the most recent was Patches, her cat, who departed earlier this summer.
She will be missed by her nephews, David (her godson and travel companion) and Peter, her niece, Celina (Ole), her great-niece Louise (Craig), her sister-in-law, Frances, and her dear friend, Susan Wilkie.
Cecily supported several organizations over the years. In her memory, we encourage you to send a small donation to The Nature Conservatory or The World Wildlife Federation.
