Celia J. Graham

May 5, 2018

Celia J. Graham, 66, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family after courageously battling cancer on Saturday May 5, 2018. She was the daughter of the late Lois Wild. Celia was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt  and friend. She was a best friend to many and a care giver to all.

Celia, affectionately known as “Cee,” was a devoted, loving mother and grandmother.  She was the anchor of her family and created a legacy to live by.  She had so much to live for and so much love to give. It is a great testament to her nature that she formed many lasting friendships over the years. Throughout her life she maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trusts and hearts of many. She preferred to spend most of her time in the comfort of her home. She was an avid gardener, animal lover, and enjoyed trips to the casino. She was an incredibly beautiful woman and her contagious smile will be missed.
