(Doucette) Rochon, age 92, of Tewksbury, formerly of Waltham, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 23, 2011.  Cecelia was born on March 4, 1919, she was the cherished only child of Samuel and Mary (Farrell) Doucette.  Cecelia was raised and educated in Boston.  She married the love of her life George T.
