To the Family of Celeste Merriweather, it was a pleasure knowing and working with Celeste at Wesley Temple A.M.E Zion Church. She was a kind, loving and giving woman of God. Whenever there was a request for support, she always asked what was needed or told you what she would be able to do.

Celeste was faithful to God, the church and the Trustee Board. We will miss her dearly.

To the Family of Celeste Merriweather,

It was a pleasure to greet Celeste as she entered Wesley Temple A.M.E. Zion Church on Sunday mornings or on other days/times when we had Church activities such as Ash Wednesday. She always had a smile and kind words to say. Celeste was very active in the Church and gladly supported the Church financially and with her many talents. Her life was a life well lived. We pray for you all during this most difficult time. Be blessed always.

Love,
Wesley Temple Sr. Ushers
