Cecilia P. Toomey, 84


Cecilia P. Toomey, 84, of Georgetown, Del., passed away at the Harrison House Senor Living Center in Georgetown on Nov. 18, 2017. She was born May 5, 1933, in Berlin, Md., to the late Willis Webb and Flossie Franklin Webb.

She married James C. Toomey, who survives her. Together, they shared more than 55 years of marriage and raised four children. She loved yard sales and thrift stores, but the most important things in the world to her were her children, grandchildren and her church. She attended Rock Church in Laurel, Del.

In addition to her parents, Toomey was preceded in death by two brothers, Walter Webb and Harry Webb. In addition to her husband, James, she is survived by her children, Harry Webb of Harrington, Del., James A. Toomey of Bridgeville, Del., Cecelia M. Toomey, also of Bridgeville, and Victoria Benson of Seaford, Del.; 13 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and an extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews, and many, many friends. 

A visitation was scheduled for Nov. 22, 2017, at Watson Funeral Home in Millsboro, Del., with graveside service and interment at Red Men’s Cemetery in Selbyville, Del. Floral tributes were welcomed, as are memorial contributions to Compassionate Care Hospice. Condolences may be sent online at www.watsonfh.com.
