BRIDGEWATER — A graveside service and internment at the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center is scheduled for June 20, at 11 a.m. for both Cecelia and Alfred Grover. Cecelia passed away on Wednesday April 9 at the Christian Care Nursing Home, Springfield, Tenn. Alfred passed away in 2012.
She was born on March 11, 1922, in Woodstock.
She graduated from Woodstock High School in 1940. Cecelia enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps (WACS) in 1944 and was assigned to a medical unit tending injured soldiers returning from the war.
Upon discharge from the Service in 1947 she worked at the Boston Army Base until moving back to her beloved Vermont in 1954. Until her retirement in 1982, Cecelia was office manager for ASCS, Department of Agriculture in Woodstock. She often reflected on these years with ASCS and the enjoyment she had working with farmers throughout Windsor County.
An avid Red Sox and Celtics fan, she rarely missed a game.
Survivors include her brother James Bradley of Woodstock; a son, Daniel and his wife, Wendy of Portland, Tenn.; four grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.
Cecelia was predeceased by her husband of 58 years.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Bridgewater Vermont Ambulance Service.
