Remembering the compassionate life of Norma Celeste Capps McWaters, beloved for her dedication to family and community. Join us in honoring her legacy by supporting Lower Cape Fear LifeCare.

Celebrate the life and legacy of Norma Celeste Capps McWaters, lovingly known as Celeste, who graced this world with her presence from October 9, 1943, to May 4, 2024. With a heart full of compassion and a spirit that radiated kindness, Celeste touched the lives of many with her unwavering dedication to her family and community.

Born in Asheville, NC, Celeste dedicated her early years to nurturing her family as a devoted stay-at-home mom. As her journey unfolded, she found fulfillment in her career as a Tax Preparer at H & R Block, where she faithfully served for 25 years, showcasing her commitment and expertise.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Celeste found joy in tending to her garden and flowers, embracing the beauty of nature around her. Her passion for gardening mirrored the care and attention she poured into every aspect of her life.

A lifelong member of Masonboro Baptist Church, Celeste shared her faith and talents through various church activities, notably as a Sunday School Teacher and a cherished member of the Choir. Her spirit of service and love shone brightly in all she did, leaving an indelible mark on those around her.

In honor of Celeste's memory, we invite you to join us in supporting Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, an organization that assists loved ones and their families during the end-of-life transition. By contributing to this cause, you can help continue the legacy of love and compassion that Celeste embodied throughout her life.

Celeste is preceded in death by her parents, Norman and Esther Capps, siblings Sheilah Capps, Maxine Poole, Janice Loney, Ronald Capps, and her infant daughter Karen McWaters. Cherishing her memory are her devoted husband of 60 years, James “Mac” Walter McWaters; daughters Kim McWaters Wilson and Susan McWaters; granddaughter Rachel Verdi and great-grandson Mason Verdi; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Services to honor Celeste's life will be held at Masonboro Baptist Church in Wilmington on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at 11 am, led by Rev. Wes Hunter. Following the service, she will find her eternal rest in the Church Cemetery. A visitation will be held at the Church an hour before the service, providing an opportunity for friends and loved ones to pay their respects.

Join us in celebrating a life well-lived and in continuing Celeste's legacy of love and service by contributing to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare in her honor. Together, we can keep her spirit alive through acts of kindness and support for those in need.
