Celeste was a champion tennis and platform tennis player at the Stamford Yacht Club, and Ft Pierce, FL. There wasn’t a bocci game, shuffleboard or pickle ball match that she could turn down. Table games like Mexican train were never to be missed.

While fiercely competitive in challenging activities, Celeste was a kind and gracious woman.

She will be missed by her entire Ocean Village family especially the great relationships with her AWOL gals.

Celeste was a devout Catholic and servant of God, a Eucharistic minister, celebrating her faith daily with Fr. George and Fr. Michael, St .Anastasia Roman Catholic Church, Ft Pierce, Florida and the wonderful church community.

As a volunteer she contributed time and effort to Rotary international and Hospice organizations in Connecticut and in Florida with Treasure Coast Hospice.

A Mass in her honor will be celebrated on January 10, 2022, at 10am at St Anastasia, Fort Pierce, Florida followed by a memorial service in Connecticut at a later date.
