Cecilia Dominguez

Cecilia Dominguez (Ceci), 64, died on Monday, July 15 having bravely dealt with pancreatic cancer. The memory of her beauty, grace and love of life cannot be dimmed by any disease. She was born in Caracas, Venezuela to the late Pierre Sapene and Josefina Mancini. She moved to the United States with her three young daughters in 1981 where she worked, raised her girls with undetermined strength and love, and became the proud grandmother "Mamma" of eight beautiful children. She was our angel on Earth and to everyone who knew her. She is survived by her three daughters Cecilia, Patricia and Eugenia, their husbands Adam, Ponch and Ricardo, her ex-husband and love of her life Augusto, her sister Finita and husband, George. Her nephews Jorge and Peter who loved her like a second mother and their wives Clarita and Carla along with their children. Her niece Jeannette and her family. Her grandchildren Tyler, Madison, Augusto, Alexander, Hannah, Anthony, Ricky and Sabrina who were the light of her life. She will be greatly missed and her bravery, kindness and devotion to us all will never be forgotten. Truly, heaven has its brightest angel.
