Celia Bauer Obituary
Bauer, Celia
Celia Bauer, 93, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 9, at Vitas Hospice in Waterbury. Born October 26, 1925 in New York City, Celia was raised in the Bronx and worked in the lower east side at her father's business, which is where she met her husband Herb. After marrying, they moved to Queens and later relocated to Branford, CT where they raised their two sons Marshall and Elliot. They remained in Branford for 45 years until Herb's death in 2008. Celia most recently resided at Solstice Senior Living center in Guilford.
Celia had a long career in administrative services working for many years at Malley's Department Store in New Haven and later the Town of North Branford. She then embarked on a new business venture with her husband, building a successful shop at home drapery business. Beside tending to her family, Celia enjoyed traveling with trips cross country, to Canada and South America. She had also been an active member of the National Cactus Society and she and her husband had a large green house that doubled as their dining room where they had hundreds of cactus varieties. In her later years, knitting became her passion and she became active with a group making blankets for children in need.
Celia leaves behind her son, Marshall and wife Leslie; son Elliot and wife Nancy; and three beloved grandchildren, Ross, Alex and Brock.
Celia will be buried next to her husband at B'nai Jacob Memorial Park at a private service on Thursday, February 14.
