Cecyl grew-up in Minneapolis. In fact, it was her great-uncle, Charle Hoag, who named the city. He combined the Dakota Indiana word "Minnehaha" (laughing waters) with the Greek word "polis" (city). He was the city's first schoolmaster and later superintendant of schools.

Cecyl was active in the University of Minnesota theater as a student. After her marriage, she started a children's theater in New York. In 1957 she decided to complete her college education, graduating from Temple University, Phladelphia, PA with a B.A. magna cum laude with distinction in history.
