She was a poet, workshop participant, Honorary Board Member, and a long-time friend of The Writer’s Center, She was 89 years old. Cicely was author of two collections of poems, A Cave of Overwhelming (2005) and Selected Poems (2007). She also contributed to Inventory, an anthology on aging, published in 2008.
