Rubin, Cecile - Stamford  
Rubin, Cecile F. Cecile Frankel Rubin died today in her home after a long illness. She was born on April 30, 1929 to Myron Frankel and Sarah Ram Frankel in Stamford. She was a devoted wife for 50 years to James Elwood Rubin, who died in 2003, and a loving mother to Karen Elizabeth Rubin, of Greenwich CT, Faith Victoria Rubin, of Washington DC, and Amy Helene Rubin, who predeceased her in 1981. She was a loving sister to Janet Frankel Goldberg of Toronto, who survives her, and to David Lewis Frankel, who predeceased her. In addition to her 2 daughters and sister, she is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. As a third generation Stamford resident, she had deep ties to the community and will be particularly remembered for her many volunteer activities. She deeply believed in the importance of community, and she expressed this belief by giving of herself generously and often. She had a love of beauty, both tangible and intangible, in all things great and small, and she had a voracious appetite for life and an enormous drive to grasp and experience as much of life as she possibly could. She was an accomplished craftswoman, a prodigious reader, a gracious hostess, and an articulate and outspoken woman who had the courage of her convictions and lived her life on her own terms. Most importantly, to those who were lucky enough to have had her in their lives, she will be remembered for her bright and sparkling spirit, her incredible loyalty to, belief in, and advocacy for those she loved, and her many accomplishments. While she has left us in body, her spirit will live on. She was widely known for her beauty, graciousness, style, and wit. She often commented with humor how, if you read the obituaries, you would think that no one bad ever died, since everyone was either a loving mother, a devoted daughter, or some other paragon of perfection. But in this case, it happens to be true. There will be a private internment on Thursday November 20th followed by a reception from 3 to 5:30pm at Edge hill Senior Living Community in Stamford for friends and family to celebrate her life. Karen Rubin will also receive at her home on Sunday November 23rd from 4 to 6pm. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Senior Services of Stamford ( seniorservicesofstamford.org ) or any of Stamford's community public libraries.
