Cecelia B. “Ceil” Reger passed away December 18, 2015 in Briody Health Care Facility.

Born at home in Lockport on June 7, 1917 to Charles and Elizabeth (Donner) Yaeger. She told stories of riding with her dad as a youngster in horse and buggy along the two lane dirt road now known as Transit North to deliver milk and eggs.  Much before school buses, she walked to the one room Cobblestone School at the corner of Hamm and Transit Roads and then to St. Mary’s Old School on Walnut Street and was a Class of 1934 graduate of St. Joseph’s Academy. Ceil was secretary at the Corn Exchange in Buffalo and later accompanied her husband to Alex, Louisiana and Tacoma, Washington as a civilian secretary for the Army.  Married January 16, 1945 and for 60 years to Oren J. Reger, together they built Reger Drive on her family farm. A devoted wife and mother, Ceil was caretaker for her youngest daughter with special needs for many years and later for her husband for 19 years after his stroke. She enjoyed Lawrence Welk’s Champagne Music and danced with him twice when he visited Buffalo and Rochester. Ceil also enjoyed traveling on many family fishing trips, camping across the US and Canada, visiting Mexico and ten European countries. She especially enjoyed seeing the Pope in Toronto and visiting Rome.

Besides her husband Ceil was also predeceased by her step-brother Charles Yaeger, and three step-sisters, Helen, Marguerite and Mary.

Ceil is survived by her daughters Linda E. (H. Douglas) Conlin, Sharon (Gregory) Eckert, and Marilyn Reger; grandmother of Robert (Charlene) Conlin, Brian (Liza Conrad) Conlin, Thomas Conln, Sean (Amanda) Conlin, Timothy Conlin, Linda A. Conlin, Jonathan (Sara) Eckert, and Elizabeth Eckert; great grandmother of Colton Eckert.
