Celeste Mercado a beloved mother, wife, sister and grandmother, who enjoyed spending time with the family, listening to her music, baking, arts and crafts, and especially crocheting. People who knew her knew she loved to have fun and enjoyed life to the fullest. At Christmas time everyone knew they were getting a new pair of crocheted slippers and a tin of fresh baked cookies. If you were really lucky you would get a handmade crocheted affgan. She will be greatly missed by all.... Till we meet again. Loving you always.
