SCOTT- FISHER, Celia (née PARSONS)
The Prima Ballerina of our lives has moved on to meet the great Choreographer in the sky. Celia passed away with her amazing dignity and strength after a prolonged fight with arthritis and heart complications. She leaves behind her greatest supporters, Tony, husband and lover for the past 45 years, Louise, her first born and constant companion when it comes to shopping and caring, Corina, the sparkle in her eye when we all thought Celia had the flu, not to overlook her shopping assistance and love. Celia was born in East Horsley, Surrey, during the height of the 2nd World War. While her father Joe PARSONS was away at war, her mother Mary (CAWDRON) PARSONS ran a small nursery school out of her house. After finishing school, a few wild trips to the continent and a spell in the advertising world in her beloved London, Celia joined her brother Clive in 1962 (during his Gap year) in Toronto to be told 'now go and get a job'. Celia joined J. Walter Thompson and then met Tony SCOTT- FISHER, a car guru and rancher from Argentina. After a whirlwind romance they were married in Folkestone, Kent, on March 21st, 1964. Canada became Celia's new home and she threw herself into Volunteer work, mostly with the Volunteer Committee of the National Ballet of Canada, including helping with Paper Things, their fund raising shop. She was also very involved with the Volunteer side of the annual fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Polo for Heart. Celia had an amazing spirit. She had incredible strength and never let the pain of rheumatoid arthritis slow her down. She loved the arts and to travel and was continuously planning the next trip, theatre or Ballet performance. She was very caring and compassionate and always thought of other people ahead of herself. Celia touched the lives of many people. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and family including her brother Clive, sister-in-law Maggie and nieces Sophie and Lucy. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, January 2nd. A funeral will be held in the chapel on Thursday, January 3rd at one o'clock. As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to the National Ballet of Canada, Audience and Donor Services, 470 Queens Quay West, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3K4, in memory of Celia SCOTT- FISHER. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.
