GRACE, CECILIA MARY, 82, Antigonish passed away peacefully on Friday June 5, 2015 in High-Crest Sherbrooke.
Born in Summerside Road, Heatherton, she was the daughter of the late William A. and Gladys (Spooner) Chisholm.
Cecilia worked at Goodman's Clothing Store in the ladies' clothing department, for over 30 years; she later took a position at Mount Saint Bernard before retiring in 1997.
