She later took a position at Transatron located in East Boston as an assembler where she worked until she was married. At that time, Celia was a proud, dedicated housewife & mother. She enjoyed being a homemaker and she was the essence of being a Mom. Her love & devotion for her family was the most meaningful part of her life. She always enjoyed & looked forward to spending time with them. Celia had a group of friends that she would enjoy the day with at Suffolk Downs Racetrack. She would enjoy many laughs & luncheons there while it was in operation. Celia also enjoyed shopping for anything & everything and going out for a wonderful dinner with her friends & family. Her humble life was prioritized by faith, family & fun.

    The nick name “Dolly” totally reflects who my aunt was.
    As a child I especially enjoyed singing “ Pennies From Heaven” with her. She always made you feel loved. ❤️

Send your condolences.
