CECILIA BARBARA NEASE
Cecilia Barbara Nease, 49, of Port Charlotte, FL, passed away in her home Sunday, January 5, after a patient, peaceful journey with her cancer. The family and extended family that she nurtured in life quickly rallied to the support of her husband, Mark, 52, and sons Simon, 13, and Nicholas, 10.
She is survived by three brothers, Paolo, Andrea, and Luca, and their wives and children, as well as an inestimable number of people whose lives she touched in her homeland of Italy and her second home, America. She left the country of her birth and spent a dozen of her most memorable years sharing her joy for life with the people of Key West. A part of her still dwells there among the tropical foliage that she loved.
Her friends are invited to celebrate her exemplary life with her family at the Gazebo in Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial offerings can be made to Simon and Nicholas Nease, to be placed in a scholarship and musicianship fund at Suntrust Bank.
