Cecilia "CeCe" Gayle Cleveland
May 12, 1938 – June 7, 2021
Cecilia "CeCe" Gayle Cleveland, 83, passed away peacefully at home on June 7, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert Cecil Carter and Maybelle Bean Carter; sister, Barbara Jean Carter; and husband H.C. Johnny Cleveland. She is survived by her children, Don Robert Knowles, Jr. (Betsy), Donna Gay Foster, Vicki Huffstutler (Steve), Randall K. Knowles, and Melony Cleveland (John); 9 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.
CeCe was born in Birmingham, AL on May 12, 1938. She earned her LPN license and worked as a nurse for over 35 years. She loved shopping, collecting what-nots, eating out, and movies. But her greatest passion was taking care of her babies in the well-baby unit.
CeCe loved bright and colorful clothing and in her memory, the family asks that if you can, you honor her by wearing that at her memorial. A memorial service will be held at Elmwood Chapel Funeral Home on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 1pm. Memorial flowers may be sent to Elmwood Chapel Funeral Home. No graveside services are scheduled at this time.
