Celeste was an independent volunteer working on beautification projects wherever she lived, on the Ol’ Maris River Run Car Show in Ottawa, and on projects for Keep Port Aransas Beautiful, the Library and the Art Center in Port Aransas. She enjoyed traveling throughout the United States, in the Caribbean and Europe.  She especially appreciated close relationships with her parents, her “twin” sister Cheryl, her forever friends from Ottawa, her extended family relatives, and her friends everywhere.

Celeste is survived by step-nephews Christopher (Cathy) Stegall and Brandon (Susan) Stegall and their 14 children, and many beloved Robison and Campbell relatives.
