Cecilia was born Oct. 9, 1921, to Daniel and Catherine ORourke Guetterman, on the family farm in Bucyrus. She lived in the Wea community her entire life attending Wea Grade School. She was united in marriage to William J. Seuferling on June 3, 1941 at Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Wea, Kansas.

She was active in the church and was a member of the choir, altar society and ladies quilting group. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and she made beautiful baby quilts for them. Her grandchildren always looked forward to grandmas cookies, her spaghetti and her famous chocolate pies. She was an avid KU basketball fan and would get very excited watching the games.

She was preceded in death by: her husband, William, of 65 years; twin sons; her parents; four brothers, Dan, Ed, Paul and John; and one sister, Mary Klawonn.

She is survived by: three daughters, Margaret Grosdidier (Ed, deceased) St. Joseph, Missouri; Kathy Carrigan (Pat) Atchison, Kansas; Doris Derkacht (David) Longview, Washington; sons, Wayne (Marian) Louisburg; Dale (Marianne) Lawrence, Kansas, and Ron (Donna) Mission, Kansas; 17 grandchildren; and 39 great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Vintage Park, Louisburg, North Point Skilled Nursing, Paola, and Ascend Hospice, Overland Park, Kansas, for their excellent and loving care of Cecilia in her later years.

Memorials in Cecilias memory are suggested to Queen of the Holy Rosary Wea Catholic School or Queen of the Holy Rosary Cemetery.
