Cecelia Cain Demarest, 71, daughter of the late George Theodore Cain and Isabel Petrino Cain, passed away after illness on December 31, 2020. Cecelia was born on February 10, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York. When she was 16 years old, Cecelia moved to Lake Neepaulin, New Jersey with her parents and two brothers. She was a member of the first graduating class of High Point Regional High School in 1967. She attended Jersey City State College for two years before marrying Thomas Wesley Demarest of Sussex, NJ on October 25, 1969. The pair was married for 51 years as of her passing. Ceil worked at many local and not so local health care facilities across Northern New Jersey, including Alexander Linn Hospital, Franklin Health Center, and University Physician Associates for UMDNJ. In addition to her career in healthcare, Ceil was active in the community — a volunteer for the Ladies Auxiliary of the Sussex Elks, High Point Hawks football, and Sussex Wantage Girl Softball. At retirement in 2010, Ceil and Tom relocated to Ocala, FL and made their permanent residence in the Summerglen Retirement Community. Ceil was an avid fan of Yankees Baseball and the New York Jets. She loved to crochet, was a fan of pop music, a competitive trivia buff, and one of QVC’s most devoted shoppers. Ceil is survived by her husband Thomas Wesley, 70 of Ocala, FL; her four daughters and two sons-in-law; Margaret Demarest of Ocala, FL, Amelia Demarest of Oxford, FL, Elizabeth and Peter Horton, of Simi Valley, CA, and Georgette and William Lyons of Dingmans Ferry, PA; and, her two granddaughters Julia Jane and Caroline Cain Horton. Ceil was predeceased by her brother Francis Cain of Wilmington, Delaware and survived by her brother Michael Cain of Hawaii. Ceil will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
