Cecile (Cissy) Pearsall,
An exquisite soul, on Monday, February 8, 2021, in her 88th year, passed peacefully, with her family by her side. Loving wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandma, and friend. Cherished daughter of the late Margaret and Izzie Himel and beloved wife of the late Lewis Pearsall. She will be missed and loved by her children Arlene (Bill) Beattie, Dipamo (Gloria) Nyman, Marc (Marny) Pearsall, Russell (Anne) Pearsall, and LeeBari Katz. Adoring grandma to her grandchildren Emily Pearsall (Jesse), Jesse Pearsall, Cole Pearsall, Molly Katz and Jake Katz. Loving sister to Alan (Suzanne) Hamel. Cissy will be fondly remembered by her extensive family of friends.
Cecile dedicated her life to her children and also found the time to do extensive volunteer work at Wellspring (Cancer Support Foundation), Canstage, Soulpepper, and the Tarragon theatres in Toronto. Cecile also had a family of friends in her beloved community at Helliwell Place, where Cecile called home for her last 20 years. The family offers our sincere thanks to all those friends who have been so supportive to Cecile over the years. A celebration of Cecile’s life will take place once the COVID-19 shutdown has been lifted. Donations in Cecile’s memory may be made to the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation (wellspring.ca/donate) or to The Ride to Conquer Cancer through https://supportthepmcf.ca/Ride21/RussellPearsall
