Please share a memory of Cecily Ann to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Our Heavenly Father has called his faithful servant home. It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Cecily Ann (Kehoe) Maltby, age 82, on November 20th, 2023 at St. Anne’s Nursing Home in Arichat with her loving family by her side. Born at home in Rocky Bay on April 19th, 1941, she was the daughter of the late Ethelbert and Mary Edna (Bowen) Kehoe. Being good with numbers, Cecily worked as a bookkeeper for a local business at an early age. Following the tragic death of her husband Simon, with the support of her family, she overcame many obstacles to raise their children. She enjoyed spending her time playing a good game of cards, bingo, and making chocolate chip cookies for her grandchildren. Cecily had a strong faith and fervently prayed the rosary for family and friends. She will be sadly missed by her children Darlene (Remi) Deveau, Antigonish, Judy Maltby, Port Hawkesbury, Blair (Dee-Anne), Port Hastings, Joey (Tanya), Rocky Bay, Elaine (Gary) MacRae, Sugarcamp; grandchildren Rebecca (Jonathan), Allana (Zach), Kyle, Alexander, Simon, Annie, Travis, Tyson, Lucas, Daniel (Pyper), Megan, as well as great grandchildren Amelia, Jack and Anna.

Besides her parents, Cecily was predeceased by her husband Simon Maltby and brother Michael Kehoe. The family would like to thank Dr. MacNeil, Dr. Cooper, Kyla MacKeigan RN, as well as the staff at the St. Anne Nursing Home for the care and kindness they provided to Cecily.
