Celeste "Cessie" Havey Obituary
December 7, 1916 - October 15, 2017 Celeste Havey was born in Kankakee Ill., and was married to Dr. Cyril T. Havey who passed away in July 1980. They have 8 kids, 15 grandkids and 9 great-grandsons. While her husband was serving in WWII, Celeste worked at the University of Chicago as a secretary on the Manhattan Project. Eventually they moved to California and the family has lived in La Cañada for over 65 years. Celeste worked at AIA Insurance for over 30 years, and upon retiring at age 75 she volunteered at Descanso Gardens. The life experiences that she lived through amaze our family, from crank cars to self driving cars! Celeste touched the hearts of all that knew her, she could make you laugh with her witty and clever sense of humor or entertaining stories. Our family is grateful for her example of how to live life to the fullest with strength and courage! From the beginning to the end our Mom, Grandma and Gigi did it "her way"! Celeste passed away peacefully on October 15 in the comfort of her own home...we love you more!
