PLAN Honors Co-founder Cecile DeWitt

In Memoriam

PLAN of Central Texas honors the life of Cecile DeWitt who passed away May 8, 2017. She was one of our beloved Co-Founders and mother of Jan DeWitt. Cecile was very active as an advocate for mental health services. She was gracious and made everyone she met feel special. We are thankful for her vision, strong leadership, tenacity, and desire to serve others which helped establish PLANCTX as a support network for adults with serious mental illness and their families. As PLANCTX continues to grow and serve the citizens of central Texas, we remember Cecile’s legacy. She will be missed!
