Cecelia was a gifted cook and she enjoyed sharing her talents with family and friends. Celia was famous for her fish frys. She took great pride in her appearance right down to her accessories and perfume. She also enjoyed gardening in her abundant gardens and canning the fruits of her labor. Cecelia was a great lover of nature, especially flowers and birds. She was a huge fan of Danny O'Donnell and was fortunate enough to have attended his concert and receive an autograph and an Irish kiss from him.
