Celine “CeCe” Cimino (Patricelli) passed away suddenly February 21st surrounded by her loving family; vivacious and vibrant to the end.

Celine was a long time Mercer Island resident where she was known for her years of primary school teaching, her Italian cooking and her radiant personality.

Born in Seattle in 1939 to a large Italian family, Celine graduated HS from Holy Rosary in 1957, then Seattle University in 1961. She married Michael Cimino and they raised two sons, Michael and Robert, on Mercer Island, where she taught 1st and 2nd grades for over 25 years – primarily at St Monica. Anyone who knew or worked with Celine could not help but be inspired by her youthful drive, fashion sense and passionate zest for company. Her children, grandchildren, large extended family and friends will miss her shining presence and unforgettable smile.

Funeral Services for Celine will be held at St. Monica’s Catholic Church Friday, March 6th at 11:00 am. There will be a Rosary said prior to the mass at 10:20. Interment at Calvary Cemetery. Please visit http://www.columbiafuneralhome.com/obituary/Celine-Cimino
