Obituary for Cecelia Eskins

Cecelia Eskins 1930-2024

Cecelia Eskins

07/26/1930 - 04/13/2024

Cecelia ‘Ceil’ Marie (Peck) Eskins, 93, made her final journey on April 13, 2024.  Cecelia was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice L. Eskins; parents, Dr. Robert Shannon, and Cecilia Peck; sisters, Anita Romig and Gloria Jacobson; brothers, Dr. DeWitt Peck and Dr. Clemer Peck. She is survived by Michael Eskins, son; Elise Lane, daughter; Roberta Eskins, daughter; Christina Eskins Davis, daughter; 5 grandchildren: John Mullins, Jacqueline Day, Dr. Allison Davis, Bradley Davis, and Logan Chittick; 5 great grandchildren: Mickenzie Day, Aubrey Day, Anon Cole, Alek Day and Brody Day.

Cecelia grew up in Cannelton, West Virginia, graduated from Montgomery High School, Montgomery, West Virginia and attended WVIT then West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia.  She was a sister with the R. Douglass Chapter of the Eastern Star, Ravenswood, West Virginia.

Ceil truly enjoyed her long lasting friendships. She was musically talented and always bringing joy through her piano playing and singing with the Sweet Adelines. Ceil was an active member of the Jackson County Homemakers Extension and held several officer positions. She was a substitute teacher, administrative assistant and worked in retail as well as being a great wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her sewing and cooking skills were well-known resulting in her winning many awards for her canned goods.

Then there were horses. No one loved horses in the same manner as Cecelia.  She was a skilled rider from a very young age.  Although she had Polio as a child she overcame many early obstacles through her passion for horses.  From Lightning to Marengo aka Ringo and all of those in between horses wanted to please her and the bond was very evident. No matter where she travelled seeing horses and spending time just petting them made her heart soar.

There will be a private celebration of Cecelia’s life at a later date where there may be tears but mostly reminiscing of the many fun times in her life. Internment will be at London Cemetery in Montgomery, West Virginia.

Our family would like to express our sincere gratitude for the compassionate care provided to Cecelia by the many nurses and aides over the past several years as well as the hospice team at Monterey Care Center.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Cecelia’s memory to: Ravenswood High School Band, 100 Plaza Drive, Ravenswood, WV 26164, or to your local school’s music program.

Thank you to Hill Funeral Home, 220 S. State St., Westerville, 43081
