Cecilia “Cil” Gobert, 56, of Beaumont, passed away on Wednesday, June 18, at Harbor Hospice in Beaumont.

Private family services will be scheduled at a later date. Cremation is planned.  Services are under the direction of Sparrow Funeral Home.

Born in Orange, on Feb. 20, 1958, Cecilia was the daughter of Elias and Magdalen (Collins) Gobert. She was a 1976 graduate of Lutcher Stark High School. She excelled in track, earning All-District Honors in the 110M hurdles. She also wrote for the school newspaper. As a young adult, Cecilia worked for a short time in the family business; in the years that followed, she struggled as her mental and physical health continued to decline. She is now free of all earthly afflictions and rests in the arms of the Blessed Mother and of the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Her mother, Magdalen Gobert of Orange preceded her in death.

Left to remember her are her father Elias Gobert of Orange; four sisters, Angela Gobert and Angeline Gobert of Orange, Sheila Metoyer (Brian) and Jennifer Bennett (Kerry) of Beaumont; and brothers, Boniface Gobert (Carol) and Frank Gobert of Orange.
