Our Mom was a very generous and loving person to her family with her time and love.

Respecting her wishes, there are no calling hours or services at this time. A celebration of her life will be at a later date at the discretion of the immediate family.

The family of Cecile Marcou would like to offer sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff of Coos County Nursing Home, Dr. Temme and Amanda Dustin for all the excellent care that was given to our Mom while a resident there.
