Cecily Brownlee (formerly Baker, nee Froehlich)

Indomitable and unsinkable, you were always an inspiration and a level-headed refuge in the sometimes madding storm of childhood.

Travel well, Auntie Cec.

Strength and Light to Ashley, Annie and families.

Cecily married Raymond Baker whom she had met when they served together in Athlone Castle. She was widowed in 1963
