Our Families Say:

Dear Paul & Staff - Thank you for your compassion, kindness and professionalism during our time of loss and sorrow. We appreciate everything you did for our family.
Sincerely
Troy & Scott Ashdown and family

Dear Paul and Staff - When you took our choices and put them into action (I am an OCD perfectionist) I could not have orchestrated the whole process better if I had directed it myself. You went above and beyond. It was phenomenal. I mean phenomenal!!!

"Personally, I think you have really answered your true calling in life, to help us deal with the death of a loved one."
Sincerely, Terry Vinning

Dear Paul and Staff - Jeff's passing was as much a shock for you, as for our family. Your kind, caring ways; your gentle guidance through those first few days after his death and ultimately through the calling hours and funeral - you never failed to be there when we needed you and continue to do so now. Our community is extremely fortunate to have you here to respond and assist families at such difficult times.
Joanne Fredenberg and Family

Dear Paul and Staff - There are not enough words to thank you all. You are very special to me and I will never forget and will always be grateful to all of you.
Very Truly Yours
Kathy Napierkowski

Dear Paul,
Words cannot express how grateful my sister and I are for all you did for our father, Thomas Turck's, funeral. You and your staff were always professional, courteous and attentive to all of our requests. From the time that Joanne and I sat with you to discuss and finalize the details for the funeral, through the burial, you could not have made it easier for us, and your attention to detail was excellent. Our father would have appreciated all the military detail, including the Army insignia on the hearse and the presenting of the three flags at the cemetery.
Joanne and I both thank you!

Paul and Staff - Your compassion helped us deal with our loss, and your professionalism was unsurpassed in helping us plan his wake and service. It truly was a celebration of David's life.
Diane Blakley

Paul and Staff - Thank you for all you did to make sure Harold was laid to rest with lots of love and dignity. I appreciate your kind, courteous and professional service.
Love, Dolores Leonard

Dear Paul and Staff - I just would like to thank you for your kindness that you gave to my husband John, during these sad times of losing both of his parents. The professionalism that you showed was outstanding but most of all your compassion and caring meant so much to us all.
Blessings & Prayers, Nancy & John Napoleon

Dear Paul and Staff - Kind, gentle, efficient, professional this is what you are. Sincere thanks for all that was done for Ella and our family.
In Sorrow, Paul Panesa

Dear Paul and Staff - Thank you!! Thank you!! For the manner in which you handled Tony's funeral. We were very pleased. God bless you!!
Love
Anne Greco & son Tony

Dear Paul & Staff - We cannot begin to express our gratitude to you for all you did to make the passing of Mom easier for us to get through. Every aspect was perfect, from making the arrangements, to making mom beautiful, to decorating with mom's things, the funeral and graveside. We will never forget your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time in our lives.
Cindy and John Belsito

Obituary

Celia Eichler, 76, of Kingston, died Saturday, October 21, 2017 at her residence at Palmer House.

Born in Paterson, New Jersey, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Edna Davison Eichler.

Cece, as she was known by her ARC family, was very social. She loved greeting people throughout the day and sitting outside on the porch. She could often be found drinking a hot cup of tea with cream and sugar or sipping a cup of Coca-Cola in the late afternoon as she watched the staff cook dinner.

She enjoyed music, her favorite song being “Amazing Grace,” and her favorite singer was Rod Stewart. When she would hear Stewart singing “Hot Legs,” she would start to dance in her seat!

Cece loved the simple things in life. She loved to color in her coloring books, and always enjoyed the Boston-Terrier Therapy dog that visited Palmer House on Mondays. She loved looking nice and always had to wear a pin on her shirt, a hair clip in her hair, have a beaded bracelet on, and have her nails painted.

Celia will be dearly missed by her many friends and family of the ARC of Ulster.

Cece will be reposing at the Simpson-Gaus Funeral Home, 411 Albany Ave on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

A Funeral Service will be conducted at 11:00 AM at the funeral home with Cantor Bob Cohen officiating.

Burial will follow at Montrepose Cemetery.
