Obituary: Cecilia Lane Sarajian 

 

Cecilia Sarajian, of Gloucester Township, died on Christmas Day at the age of 68.  She was the devoted mother to Summer Sarajian-Davis (Evan) of Haddonfield, Mom-Mom to Chase and Allie, Aunt CiCi to all her nieces and nephews, sister to Frank Lane and Laurie Pehrson, as well as a second “Mom” to so many. 

“For the holy message of Christmas is that heaven’s gates stand open for us.”

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Celia is able to rest in peace.

Celia’s caretaking nature is seen in many areas of her life.  She began a long career spanning over 40 years, from nurse manager at Cooper Medical Center to founder of Neighborhood Nannies in Haddonfield. 

As a doting mother and Mom Mom, Celia relished the role and title. She needed no training for it, it came naturally. Celia had been a source of love and advice for so many over the years. Her door was always open, her phone was always answered.  Celia wanted the best for all who crossed her path. And all who crossed her path, left with a hug.  Celia loved nature and God’s creatures, especially cats. 

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory may be made to: Mew To You, 959 Asbury Avenue, Ocean City, N.J. 08226, a pet adoption service. 

A Celebration of Life for Celia will be held in the spring/summer.
