Cecelia loved teaching art and working with other teachers.
In her retirement, Cecelia was a local artist and a member of the Susquehanna Valley Plein Aire Painters. She enjoyed her time painting with other artists. She valued the many years of laughter and sharing life with her oldest friends. Most of all, she loved her family; her husband, children, grandchildren and parents.
