Such a Jewel. Myself and my twins spent many many Sunday mornings in the kitchen with this wonderful lady at the Moose Lodge. You could not be anything but Happy around Ciss. Her smile was just contagious. Love you always!

Ciss, you were one of the best. It was an honor to have known you and can call you our friend. We had so much fun helping you cook those dinners at the Lodge. You always had the biggest smile and the biggest heart. You will be missed but I know you are singing up there in heaven.

To Mark, Tony, and the rest of the family, so sorry to hear about the passing of Ciss. She was a very sweet lady with an amazing voice. Rest well in knowing that she and Marvin are finally together again, and I'm sure she's already found a microphone to keep the folks entertained with that sweet voice. Know that you're all in my thoughts and prayers.
