Cecilia M. Lang, passed away peacefully with a hint of a smile on Tuesday, September 28, 2021. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1937, she was the only child of Federico and Cecilia Mariotti. As a child she spent many memorable days playing with the animals on her grandparents’ farm, hence her tremendous love for animals of all kinds. She and her husband Doug raised and/or rescued many golden retrievers during their lifetime. Rocky, Candy, Morgan, Maximo, Governor, Robin and Buddy to name but a few of those loving tail waggers!! Cecilia immigrated to the United States in the early 60”s. She attended university and then worked as a translator for an import/export company because of her ability to speak at least 4 languages. Eventually, Cecilia, became involved in banking as a marketing specialist. Over the years she worked for several banks and credit unions. She was also involved in her community, in particular being a member of the El Paso Zoo advisory board and a member of Coronado Baptist Church as well as other community organizations. Cecilia is predeceased by her husband, Douglas B. Lang, her parents, Federico and Cecilia Mariotti and many furry friends, cats and dogs alike. Cecilia is survived by many friends who describe her as having been a classy and gracious woman. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Shirley Thompson, nephew and niece, Gary and Vannin McNair; nephews: Jim Hutchinson and John Hutchinson; and her dear cousin Fernanda Aime. She is also survived by several great nephews and nieces who will always cherish their memory of her playing “Marco Polo” with them in a swimming pool!
