Sad News


Cecile James passed away at home in Lynchburg, Virginia on February 12, 2014. Cecile was mother to four and grandmother to seven. She was 79.


Cecile started caving with the VPI Cave Club, but was also an active member of the Nashville Grotto for many years, and most recently was part of the Blue Ridge Grotto. But, most cavers know Cecile as the proprietor of B&C Wunderwear, a company she had started in the 1990s; and through her presence as a vendor at NSS Conventions, and regional caving events such as OTR, SERA, TAG, VAR and the Cumberland Caverns Christmas Party. Over the years, she carefully evolved the suits, bibbs, shorts and kneepads that many cavers have come to love. She was active and vibrant to the end.
