SABEAN, Cecelia (Sis) Sabean   -  89 years old, passed away from Alzheimer's on Monday, October 24, 2022, at Parkview Home in Stouffville, Ontario with her daughter and partner by her side.

She was born November 14, 1932, in Nipissing, Ontario, to Peter and Annie Lariviere.

She is survived by her daughter Debbie Sabean, her sister Diana Grix, and her partner Norm Goodspeed.

Her two sons Ronald and Peter, husband Allison, and nine brothers and sisters preceded her in death.

Tragically, she also suffered the loss of a newborn baby boy with an inoperable enlarged heart.

She brought him home briefly then returned him to the hospital where he died a few short days later.

Sis loved cooking, baking, knitting, sewing and traveling.

Some of her favourite trips were with her sister Diana in Branson, Hawaii and Dollywood.

She also volunteered at the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital gift shop. Some of her various occupations over the years included cook at the Uxbridge bowling alley, sales clerk and cashier at Siegrist's, JB Variety, and IGA, and serving at her friend's catering events.

Eventually she retired at the age of 65 from Davies IDA Pharmacy where she maintained the inventory and placed orders.

Many thanks to the staff at Parkview Home in Stouffville for her wonderful care.

Cremation has taken place. Per her wishes her burial will take place privately with her family at a later date at Uxbridge Cemetery.
