Cecelia E. Cummings

Cecelia Elizabeth Cummings ("Sid") of Owl Hill Road, Lititz, passed away Monday, Aug. 29, 2011 at Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center under Hospice Care.

She was the widow of W. Scott Cummings and they shared 64 years of marriage until his death on Aug. 14, 1998. She was the daughter of Elva and Fred Dagen.

Sid was a member of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church of Lititz and was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She had a good sense of humor, a "heart of gold" and was generous to all. In earlier years, she enjoyed dancing, horseback riding, shopping, cooking, baking and playing pinochle. In her senior years, she liked to read and loved making "heart" pillows of all sizes, most of which she gave to others. An animal lover, she especially enjoyed cats and horses. She retired from Warner Lambert after over 20 years of service.

She is survived by her daughter: Linda Rae Demmy, wife of Claude, of Lititz; a son: Gary Scott Cummings, husband of Frances, of Forksville; granddaughter: Kathryn Smith, wife of Thomas, of Schaefferstown; another granddaughter; six great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; a faithful friend: Lynn, wife of Merle Stauffer, of Ephrata; and a sister-in-law: Lorraine Dagen, of Luther Acres, Lititz.

She was predeceased by her husband, parents and brothers: H. Ray, Cleon and Vincent Dagen; and sisters: Hazel Cochran and Anita Dagen.

The family wishes to thank Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center and Hospice of Lancaster County for their compassion to us and our loved one.
