Longtime Sharon Springs, Kansas resident Cecilia Douglas, 91, died Monday, April 8, 2013, at Greeley County Hospital in Tribune, Kansas.

She was born March 1, 1922, at Catherine, in Ellis County, Kansas, the daughter of Katie (Bissing) and Adolf Dorzweiler.  When she was four, the family moved to Weskan, and she started her school years there.  The family later moved to rural Wallace, and she graduated from eighth grade there.  In October of 1935, the family moved to Sharon Springs, and she graduated from Wallace Community High School in 1939.

On July 21, 1941, she and Harold Edgar “Cupe” Douglas were married at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Sharon Springs, and to them was born their son Donald John Douglas.  She worked at various jobs while her husband was in the military service of his country, before starting to work in September of 1952 at Peoples State Bank in Sharon Springs.  After thirty years of service, she retired in 1982.  “Cupe” preceded her in death on July 13, 1980.

On May 4, 1991, she and Lloyd Keith Camp were married at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Sharon Springs.  He preceded her in death on September 14, 2011.

She was a member of Holy Ghost Catholic Church and Altar Society, as well as Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary.  She enjoyed traveling, visiting casinos, playing cards, and dancing.  Staying in shape was a priority, and she was dedicated to walking a route in town with her pedometer on her hip, so that she would know how many miles she had walked.
