Cecelia was born on April 18, 1927 in Lafayette. Mom was a lifelong parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Breaux Bridge. She faithfully attended Saturday mass and played Bingo in the Church hall afterwards, every Saturday. Mom was very faithful to God and said her Rosary everyday. She was a familiar face there, everyone knew her and looked forward to seeing her every week. Mom spent many years as a volunteer cook for various church functions. 

After she was retired, she attended events at Sydnie Mae Durand Senior Center, where she met her good friend Beth Stark. Mom was always the light of the party and enjoyed wearing her various hats. She enjoyed talking about her family and close friends. She cherished her family and looked forward to spending time with them every Sunday. She loved to make her family laugh with her many old stories that she would tell. It would be like a reunion for her and her family. 

Mom's home will always be remembered as the place her family would get together for laughter, great food, such as hot cush cush, coffee with the buttery cookies/donuts and that good ole homemade cooking.

Mom will always be remembered as a joy and fun person to be around, it was never a dull moment when you were around her. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
