GRIFFIN, Cecilia Ann (Cele) Of Harwich Port, previously of West Hartford, CT, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on October 13, 2016. Cele was born in Cambridge to the late John and Rita Griffin. She was raised in Winchester, attended Winchester High School, and went on to be a proud graduate of Boston College School of Nursing Class of 1973. Cele started her nursing career at Newington, CT Children's Hospital, thus beginning a lifetime devoted to caring for others, from pediatric nursing through to her work in assisted care. Her nurturing character will live on through her children and grandchildren. She is survived by her four children, Kathleen Milbier, Kyle Milbier and his wife Catherine O'Leary-Milbier, Brenna Milbier, and Matthew Milbier. Cele was "CeCe" to her adoring grandchildren, Fin and Cora Milbier. Cele was part of a large, loving family, and is survived by her siblings, John Griffin, Dennis Griffin, Maryann Wulff, Robert Griffin, Alice LaMarque, and Kathryn Griffin. Cele was a master at entertaining and cooking for her family and friends, including her twenty-four nieces and nephews who affectionately referred to her as "Auntie Cele." With her infectious laugh and witty sense of humor, Cele always found joy in everyday life.
