                                                                                 CECILIA BROWNING (CAMER) GOODWIN
                    November 17, 1926 to October 24, 2016 

Cecilia Browning Camer Goodwin, 89, of Suwanee, GA,  passed away peacefully Monday morning, October 24, 2016 at her home in Suwanee, Georgia.  She was born November 17th, 1926 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to Edward Camer, Stanislau, Austria and Sarah Lavinia Murray Camer, Lake George, New Brunswick, Canada. She married Roy Charles Goodwin on March 1st 1953 in Rochester, New  York. 

She is survived by her son, Dr. R. Clark (Mary) Goodwin of Fayetteville, New York; her daughter, Valerie  Diane Goodwin (Robert) Dirksen of Suwanee, GA; her daughter-in law, Barbara Wilde Goodwin of Upper Marlboro, Maryland;  two granddaughters Sarah and Catherine Dirksen of Suwanee, Georgia, and two grandsons Andrew and David Goodwin of Fayetteville, New York, and two adopted grandsons, Stanley Cayo and Patrick Caporal; one nephew, Keith Barkley of Rochester, and several cousins.
Cecilia is predeceased by her  beloved husband of 63 years Roy Charles Goodwin, sons John Paul, Roy Cole, and daughter Heather Elizabeth.  Her only sister Nancy Murray Camer Stapley also predeceased her.

After attending Kings College at the University of Toronto, Cecilia went on to work at the Imperial Bank of Canada, before coming to New York in 1951.  She accepted a position with Executive Offices at Kodak Park, in Rochester, New York , and worked there until 1954, when she quit to stay home and start a family.  She ultimately returned to work , and was a Federal  Retiree, having worked in Germany and Ft. Drum, Watertown, New York

Her mother’s family was United Empire Loyalists  from Donnelly Settlement in the Maritime province of New Brunswick, and her father’s family were horse brokers , and traded horses throughout Europe for multi generations, providing horses for the Austrian Army and the Czar of Russia. As a result, her father spoke 7 languages fluently.  He was well traveled throughout the world where he had worked as a ship engineer.  Upon arriving in Canada in 1905, he was a Real Estate Broker, and Stock Broker on the Canadian
Stock Exchange.   Her Mother was a nurse who had survived the 1918 Flu pandemic in Montreal, and was the last remaining nurse assisting the last doctor at the Montreal General Hospital.  She was never sick, and didn’t get a sniffle when 50 to 100 million perished in the pandemic, as she was extremely healthy.

Cecilia was very proud of her heritage and her family, but never boastful.  Anyone who knew her, were amazed at her literary skills (as she loved to read the dictionary and could spell anything), her love of history and amazing wealth of knowledge, and her writing skills were incredible.  One day she asked to look up her mother’s cousin Bliss Carmen,  whom she said  was “some writer and her mother adored him”.  In fact, William Bliss Carmen was the Poet Laurate of Canada!  His literary roots run deep with an ancestry that includes a mother who was a descendant of Daniel Bliss of Concord, Mass, and the great-grandfather of Ralph Waldo Emerson.  His sister, Jean married the botanist and historian William Francis Ganong.  Additionally, on his mother’s side, he was a first cousin to Sr. Charles G. D. Roberts.

What she loved most, was enjoying time with her family, listening to classical music, drinking a hot cup of Red Rose Tea, and having an incredible conversation, as she was an expert on just about everything.  She was the most incredible, kind, positive, inviting, hospitable, loving person you ever met.  You could not leave her, not know how much she loved you.  She will be forever in our hearts and souls, and her spirit will live on through all of us. 

Services will be conducted at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Geneva, New York.

Keegan-Osbelt-Knight Funeral Home, Inc. is entrusted with the arra
ngements.

Family and friends remember Katherine as being an enthusiastic board game player, Scrabble game competitor, and card game-playing shark. She enjoyed the pleasure of eating out with family and friends, having someone else preparing a delicious meal, especially if it were pork chops or a savory steak. She was a lover of reading crime fiction and fantasy thriller books, writing poetry and short stories, and putting puzzles together. Her talent for crocheting blankets of all sizes, shapes and colors were a gift to many family members and friends. During the last four years, she found the most gratification in the giving of her talent as a volunteer donor of children’s blankets to the Crouse Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

By Henry Scott-Holland

 

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.

Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way, which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
