Cecile (Ceil) Mary Kinney


Cecile "Ceil" Mary Kinney died peacefully at home April 9, 2018. Cecile was the second of six children of Irvin and Bernadette (Hebert) LaBelle, who preceded her in death. Cecile was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Donald P. Kinney, married June 12, 1954, and passed away on June 27, 2004.
Cecile is survived by her brother, Robert LaBelle, Laconia, New Hampshire. Cecile is also survived by her beloved children, Sean P Kinney, Gilayne M. Lange, Thomas J. Kinney and Kay (Kellie) Schneck husband Barry. Cecile is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren and multiple nieces and nephews.
Cecile proudly served in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict and was a disabled veteran. Cecile was employed as a nurse and retired from Ivy Tech College as a professor of the allied health programs and the medical assistant program. Ceil touched many lives with her compassion and vast medical knowledge. All students were welcome at her door and were given every opportunity to advance their careers and their personal lives.
Cecile's interests included music, quilting, crocheting, bird watching, gardening and watercolor painting.
Cecile especially cherished her beloved dog, Gigi. Cecile spent many hours playing and holding her Gigi. Anyone who knew Cecile wished they could be reincarnated as Ceil Kinney's dog. What a life that would be!
Cecile will be greatly missed by her friends and especially her family. It would be difficult to find a more compassionate loyal friend and mother than Cecile.
