In Memoriam: Lucy Cecere

A life-long Villager, Lucy Cecere worked to help senior citizens in her community for nearly forty years, ran the Something Special shop on MacDougal Street with her husband, and became a vocal supporter of landmarking for the South Village.

In 2010 Lucy was presented with a GVSHP Village Award for her tireless work in support of our community. Read the citation here.

Lucy was an ardent supporter of preserving the South Village neighborhood. She spoke at rallies, gathered petition signatures, and was a member of GVSHP’s South Village Advisory Board. Below is a video of Lucy and other South Village supporters discussing why a South Village Historic District is critical to the future of the neighborhood.
