Ms. Celie was such an amazing woman. She has been with me my entire career (11 years) at the senior center and has always kept me on my toes. She would always offer a hug every day and a smile as she sat and ate her fig newton. I will definitely miss her. She was at the senior center every single day it was open and if she had a doctors appointment she would always try to come afterwards. She touched so many lives at the senior center and will be missed.

I have only known Ms Celie a little over a year. She was an amazing person at her age. She did all activities. Watching her inspired me to move more. She will be missed especially at bingo. I blame the Covid 19 for letting her go early and for me missing the 5 months of time seeing her. REST IN PEACE!!!! Dearly missed.

Ms Celia was a true inspiration to us all. She loved the Lord and stated her longevity of her life was due to prayer. She pushed forth every day and thanked her Lord for every day of her life. She enjoyed her friends and family to the fullest! I will surely miss her but am so thankful I got to know her and love her. in the last 3 years. Enjoy your heavenly home Ms.Celie...and rest in eternal peace.

Aunt Suz was a phenomenon
She was not gonna leave this earth till she was ready
I really miss her a lot even though I was a handful
I am sure her and my mom are arguing as I write this

Aunt Celie was so full of spunk! So glad that we were able to reconnect for her 100th birthday and stay in touch. She definitely touched a lot of people's lives over the years and will be missed by everyone, especially Juli! Until we meet again Aunt Celie, we love you! Ray & Sue
