89; Biddeford, ME
Cecile Guay, 89, of Biddeford, passed away on Thursday, February 18, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Daughter of the late Alexander and Lina Desloges, Cecile was born on April 22, 1931 in Ham-Nord, Quebec. She moved to Biddeford at a young age and went on to graduate from St. Joseph’s High School.
On June 20, 1953, she united in marriage with Robert Guay at St. Joseph’s Church in Biddeford, and together they had two children.
Cecile was employed by Pratt Whitney in North Berwick for many years, and retired from her position in the 1990’s.
She and her husband were active members of the Fremont Club in Biddeford, and she also enjoyed being a part of the Red Hat Society in Florida where the snowbird couple had a home. Cecile and Robert enjoyed travelling, both in the states and abroad.
When not travelling, she could often be found enjoying a game of bingo, building her jigsaw puzzles, or, most importantly, rocking away in her beloved rocking chair. Cecile enjoyed rocking so much, that when in the hospital, her family ensured she had a rocking chair there to make her feel more at home.
Along with her parents, Cecile is preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert Guay; and siblings, Jeannine Belanger and Marcel Delorge.
Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Priscille Paul and her husband, Andrew, of Biddeford; son, Roland Guay of Eliot; two sisters, Claudette Guay and her husband, Raymond, and Rachel Guay; two grandchildren, Alicia Paul and her husband, Jeremiah Cates, and Alex Paul and his wife Marina; great-grandson, Maverick Paul; and many nieces and nephews.
Hope Memorial Chapel has been entrusted with Cecile’s care. Due to Covid-19 precautions, a private memorial service will be held, and she will be laid to rest beside her husband at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Biddeford.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Hospice of Southern Maine in Cecile’s honor. The address is as follows: 390 US-1, Scarborough, ME 04074.
