Cecelia Neill, age 59, passed away suddenly on Monday October 11, 2021.

Beloved wife of 37 years to Charles Neill. Loving mother of Andrew Neill and Joseph Neill and his wife, Alyssa. Cherished Grandmother of Jensen Neill, her pride and joy. Dearest daughter of Bill and Rita Stephens. Sister to Rita Kerr and her husband Kevin, Ben Stephens and his wife Pat, Guy Stephens, and the late William Stephens.

Born and resided in Philadelphia where she dedicated the last 10 years of her life serving our most valued citizens, the children of the area, as a lawyer in the family court system. Ceil was a wonderful mother and unfailingly generous person who would go above and beyond for her family, friends and anyone who needed her.

She enjoyed spending her free time relaxing on her back patio, in the family mountain home, trying her luck at the casinos and relishing in the simple joys of family, friends and food. Holidays in her home were full of warmth, love and the most perfect baked goods.

All are invited to celebrate her life and legacy Monday, October 25th from 6-8 pm at the John F. Givnish Life Celebration Home 10975 Academy Rd, Philadelphia PA. A short viewing will be held Tuesday morning October 26th at 9 am at St. Jerome Catholic Church, 8100 Colfax Street, Philadelphia, Pa with the Mass immediately following at 10:00AM.
