Cecelia D. Shloul
Cecelia Dora (McGlauflin) Landy Shloul age 88, died on January 18th at her son's home in Cranston, RI after a short illness. Cecelia was born in Limestone, Maine, the eldest of five children born to Ivan and Eva (Tilley) McGlauflin. She traveled widely during her marriage to her first husband (Ernest J. Landy) who was an Air Force serviceman. Since then, she has lived in various places including Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Florida.
She was an avid quilter and also knitted and crocheted. She worked for the City of Providence during the 1970's and became fluent in Spanish. She was a life-time member of the Baptist Church and usually very active in the choir as she had a beautiful singing voice. Cecelia belonged to the community at the Fred Lippman Multi-Purpose Center in Hollywood, FL for many years where she taught quilting. Upon moving back to Rhode Island, she joined the Cranston Senior Center and continued joining needlework groups while making new friends. She was predeceased by one son, Ernest J. Landy, Jr. and three siblings, Ivan McGlauflin, Avis Ellis, and Donald McGlauflin. Cecelia is survived by four of her five children: Eva-Marie Leporacci (Nicholas) of Woonsocket, Jo-Ann Croft of Cranston, Brian Landy (Amelia) of Cranston, and Michael Landy (Cindy) of Sacramento, CA. She has six grandchildren (Nicholas, Joel, Heather, Helen, Kerry, Sean) and eight great-grandchildren (Micheal, Nicole, Jamyle, Danielle, Francesca, Jensen, Michael, Zachary). She is also survived by a sister, Rachel Porter (Berton) of Savannah, NY and Hobe Sound, FL. A funeral service will be held on Friday at 6:00pm in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston. Visitation will be held two hours prior to the service from 4:00-6:00pm.

My thoughts and prayers are with you today as we fondly remember Cecelia. She loved her family and friends deeply and lived a life of service to her Lord in song and devotion. We will all miss her warm smile and words of encouragement.

I will always remember the Aunt Cecelia of my childhood with a smile. I will never forget her way of appreciating and embracing whatever life put in her path. Her straightforwardness and directness was always refreshing and her deep faith was inspiring. I'm sure she's already singing in heaven's choir, alongside my father (her brother, Ivan).
My heart goes out to Aunt Rachel and all my cousins and their children. May your tears water beautiful memories.

I will always remember Auntie Ceil with a twinkle in her eyes, her smile and her laugh. She laughed from her inner core. She had such compassion for her family and friends. With her faith in Our Lord she is singing in the choir with her wonderful voice. Embracing you all with our love.
