Celie has been my treasured neighbor since 1997. She and Ron were the nicest people a neighbor could ask for. Celie was the sweetest person who loved her family tremendously. She would travel to visit her grandchildren and upon her return she’d proudly share all of the beautiful pictures with me. I’m going to miss her greatly. I offer my sincerest condolences to those who loved Celie.

Celie will be missed. We knew her thru her Son and Daughter in law, Doug and Carmin Humphries and every time we’d see her with them in CO she was so proud and just glowing being around her grandkids. You could see the love she hand for her grandkids and great grandbaby. We came to love her too and called her Momma Celie. Sending prayers and love to all of your sweet family. Rest in Peace.

To the family of Cecelia I am truly sorry for your loss. Cecelia was an amazing woman. Always kind, thoughtful and funny. She was a hard worker and did everything with a smile and excellence. I was blessed and honor to have worked with her for many years in the clothing areas at the Belleville Walmart. She will be missed by all who loved and knew her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, especially her grandchildren.
