Join us in celebrating the inspiring life of Norma Celeste Capps McWaters, a devoted wife, mother, and community member known for her love, faith, and selflessness.

Join us in celebrating the inspiring life of Norma Celeste Capps McWaters, affectionately known as Celeste. Born in Asheville, NC on October 9, 1943, Celeste passed away on May 4, 2024, in Wilmington, NC. At the age of 80, she leaves behind a legacy of love, faith, and selflessness.

Celeste dedicated her life to her family, serving as a loving stay-at-home mom before embarking on a fulfilling career as a Tax Preparer for H & R Block, where she faithfully served for 25 years. She had a passion for flowers and gardening, finding joy in the beauty of nature.

As a lifelong, active member of Masonboro Baptist Church, Celeste shared her faith and talents in various church activities. She was known for her role as a Sunday School Teacher and member of the Choir, touching the lives of many with her kindness and devotion.

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. She is survived by her devoted husband of 60 years, James “Mac” Walter McWaters, daughters Kim McWaters Wilson and Susan McWaters, granddaughter Rachel Verdi, great-grandson Mason Verdi, and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

A service to honor Celeste's life will be held at 11 am on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at Masonboro Baptist Church in Wilmington, led by Rev. Wes Hunter. Following the service, burial will take place in the Church Cemetery. Visitation will be held at the Church an hour before the service.

To honor Celeste's memory and continue her legacy of giving, we are raising funds for the Masonboro Baptist Church - Cemetery Fund in her name. Your generous donations will help maintain the final resting place of our beloved Celeste and support the community she cherished.

Let's come together to celebrate the life of a remarkable woman and ensure that her spirit of kindness and generosity lives on. Thank you for your support.
