I actually grew up with Celia, since she was my 2nd. cousin. .Her dad was my mom's nephew. His mother was my Aunt "Mamie" Workman-Smith, (Celia's Grandmother). My mom was Catherine Workman-Villers. The last time I saw Celia was at one of the Workman Family Reunions in Weston. That was also the last time I saw her mom, "Jean".....which was so nice because we began communicating in letters after that. I always really liked her mom. She was so personable. I am sorry to realize that all 3 immediate members of that family have passed. Prayers and condolences to Celia's family.
