Cecile C. Ross, age 9,5 passed away quietly on October 19, 2013 at Palm Gardens of Clearwater, Florida.

She was born on January 1, 1918 in Lynn, Massachusetts, Cecile was the youngest of seven children, that preceded her in death, and the daughter of Camillo C. Despres and Azilda (Ducharme) Despres.

Cecile worked in several factories as a machinist, but began her career at the age of 16 with Parker Brothers assembling Monopoly games.

The family loved music and she harmonized with her sisters and later friends, singing in clubs and on stage. She resided in Lynn until she moved in 2004 to Dunedin, Florida, to be close to her son; her daughter later moved across the street from her. Although she was legally blind, she lived alone until June 2013, when she moved to Palm Gardens of Clearwater. She loved cooking, singing, and swimming in the neighborhood pool, but her love of family and sense of humor set her apart.

Cecile is survived by her daughter, Darlene Baker, and son, Richard and daughter-in-law, Patricia Pierce, eight grandchildren: Melody, Keith, Denise, Lindsey, Dana, Randy, Denney, and D'Arcy, nine great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren. Cecile will be cremated and interned in St Jean's Cemetery in Lynn, Massachusetts, with her parents and siblings.
