Former Goshen City Court Judge Cecelia McGregor dies

GOSHEN — Cecelia McGregor, 60, a fixture in the Goshen City Court for more than 20 years, died Friday at 10:35 p.m. at her Goshen residence.

Elected to her first term as Goshen City Court Judge in 1984, McGregor retained her seat until 2005, when she left the position on medical leave due to multiple sclerosis. All together, she was successfully re-elected to the seat five times over the course of her 21 years as City Court judge.

“She was City Court judge for a while while I was mayor,” said Goshen Mayor Allan Kauffman in remembering McGregor. “She was very even-tempered, very good with people who came to court. I didn’t really work with her very much directly. I knew more about her just from hearing from other people. But I always heard she had a good demeanor and worked well with the people who came through the court.”

McGregor received her bachelor’s degree in 1974 from Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In 1977 she graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School and passed the Bar Exam in 1978.

On July 27, 1974, in Eldora, Iowa, she married Donald R. McGregor. He survives.

Also surviving is a son, Eric Curtis McGregor, Kalamazoo, Mich.; and her parents, Wayne and Luetta Cashatt, Eldora, Iowa.

Friends may call one hour prior to the 10 a.m. funeral service Feb. 11 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Goshen.

Rieth-Rohrer-Ehret Funeral Home, Goshen, is assisting the family with arrangements.
