Cilla had a remarkable memory and was the family historian. She also could remember lyrics to poems and songs long since forgotten by most of us! She was a life time lover of cats and leaves her companion, Scooter.
When Cilla was a military wife in the 1970's, she lived in the deep South. She started attending Bible studies. Hence she began a life-long study of the Word.

The family would like to offer special thanks to Pastor Sharon, Alice, Sandy, Maryanne and all Cilla's friends from Envision Easthampton Church who visited and ministered to Cilla.
