In loving memory of Celia Ann Brinkley Lewis Stroud
Fund Type: Memorial DonationsAhoskie, NC
Fundraiser ends on July 21, 2021
Ms. Stroud was born in Hertford County, NC, on May 22, 1933, a daughter of the late Ledie Alphus and Lou Overton Brinkley. Celia spent her life caring for people during her career at Roanoke Chowan Hospital and Pitt Memorial Hospital. Her great cooking and baking skills brought her much joy, especially when she could share with others. Family was the most important thing in Celia's life. Her pride and joy was her children, grandchildren and great grand babies, including children she cared for that she considered her own grand babies, and she made each and every one feel like they were her favorite. She and her sister, Shirley, who is 93, would talk regularly for hours about brothers, sisters, and children, keeping their memories alive. She was a shopping buddy, Facebook queen, and loved watching Hallmark movies with her daughters. She loved fishing and crabbing. Celia was a confidant and you could confide in her about anything. If anyone had a question about a family member's birthday, Celia was the one to ask, always keeping up with the family from children to cousins to nieces and nephews. Whether you knew her as Squealy, Aunt Celia, Grammy, Grandmama, Nanny, girlfriend, or "one special lady", she always encouraged everyone to turn to the Lord through all trials in life. She was the rock of the family and our angel here on earth to all who knew her and blessed so many people's lives just by knowing her.
