Celia literally reared dozens of children in her many years of keeping the nursery at the Fayetteville United Methodist Church. Two of those children were my own. Celia's influence on all of those children will be felt for generations to come. A life well lived. Well done good and faithful servant.

She was such a fantastic lady! We always visited every time we went to my Grandma Keffer's house next door. I think they were neighbors for more than 50 years. So many great memories. I'm so sad to hear of hear passing. Peace and love to her family during this time. We'll miss her!

Celia will truly be missed by family, friends, and church associates. I cherish fond memories of growing up as a neighbor of the Williams family, being friends with Terry, Alice, and Wanda Gay as children and teenagers, and continuing those friendships into adulthood. Celia was one of a kind.
