In Memory of Cecilia Saadeh

In Memory of Cecilia Saadeh

RAISED: $1,300

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Our team wants to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we need you to do it!

Our mother Cecilia Saadeh was born on April 27, 1939, in Anton, Republic of Panama.

Cecilia was a fierce and strong woman who held fast to her beliefs, defended those she loved, and always sought to better herself. She had a deep love of gardening and creating a welcoming and loving home. You would always find her shopping at her favorite stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, At Home and Bealls. Cecilia enjoyed looking for new decorations for the house or searching for a new plant or flower at Lowes or Home Depot. Cecilia's favorite bird was the Cardinal and her most recent favorite flower was the Sunflower. Cecilia took pride in her appearance and was always well-dressed wearing her earrings, necklace, bracelets, and natural makeup.

Ultimately, our mother was able to find peace and gained her angel wings on October 10th, 2023.

We will miss Cecilia dearly, but we are so grateful for the time we had to spend with her. We will always feel her presence in our hearts.
