Alexandria, Va - Celia Lenore Barefoot passed away on November 13, 2013 at the age of 7 months, 2 days as a result of complications of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), which is the number-one genetic killer of children under two years of age. Celia will continue to live in the memory of her mom and dad, Thomas and Kimberly Barefoot, and brothers James and Alistair of Alexandria; her beloved Aunt Tammy Thompson of Shreveport, LA (who became a second mother to Celia); her grandparents, Virginia St. John of Shreveport, LA, Betsy Barefoot and John Gardner of Pisgah Forest, NC, Sherwood Barefoot of Fort Mill, SC, and other aunts, uncles, and cousins. In her short life, Celia brought much joy to her family. She was never without a smile and especially enjoyed floating in the pool or tub, watching "Strawberry Shortcake" on television, listening to music, and watching her brothers. Those wishing to remember Celia and the other infants who are victims of this lethal genetic disorder can make a donation to "Families of SMA" either online at www.fsma.org or by mail to FSMA Donations, 925 Busse Road, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007.
