CECELIA ELISABETH KAST (published on September 30, 2009)



CECELIA ELISABETH KAST Peacefully on September 21, 2009, Cecelia Elisabeth Kast, at the age of 88, passed away at St. Boniface General Hospital, Winnipeg. Cecelia was predeceased by her husband Herman. She leaves to mourn three sons, Harold (Wendy), Albert (Elaine) and Mack (Nancy), and two daughters, Bertha (Bill Nelson) and Irene (Pat Duffy), as well as six grandchildren, Michael, Scott, Kathy (Murray), Kevin, Nicole (Jamie), Heather and Jennifer (Richard), and four great- grandchildren. Cecelia was the proud daughter of Paul Sr. and Elisabeth Hiebert, born on June 11, 1921 in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her four brothers and three sisters. Cecelia witnessed the unfolding of many significant events over time, including her father's first car, a Model T Ford. After marrying and moving to Northwestern Ontario, Cecelia made a wonderful life in Sioux Narrows. She and Herman built a log home and began raising their family. They started their tourist resort business, Herman's Cabins, in 1945 which later became known as Tomahawk Resort. Around all of this they raised their children, instilling a sense of independence in them through the importance of education and family. Cecelia loved to cook and bake, with dinner being a time for family. Her lemon pie and roast chicken dinners will be missed. Cecelia also loved to do many crafts such as pottery, stained-glass, sewing, knitting and crochet. She loved to make personalized crafts for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Cecelia was a fun loving person full of energy, and in her younger years gathered crowds to listen to her play the pump organ. She loved music and dancing, especially the polka. She enjoyed travelling, going to Cuba, South America and Europe on many occasions. She spent a number of winters in Arizona with her close friend and companion, Edward Kulson and they enjoyed each others company for many years. Cecelia has enriched the lives of all who knew her. We are very grateful for the many choices and sacrifices she made over the years and we are all better people for having known and loved her. Cremation has taken place. A private family graveside service will be held at the Pineridge Cemetery in Sioux Narrows. Family and friends are welcome to make a memoriam donation to the Alzheimer's Society of Kenora/Rainy River District, Box 837, Kenora, Ontario P9N 4B5 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation, P.O. Box 3064, Kenora, Ontario P9N 4C8. The Neil Bardal Inc website, www. nbardal.mb.ca has provisions for anyone wishing to leave expressions of condolences. NEIL BARDAL INC. 204-949-2200 nbardal.mb.ca
