Centelle loved her Lord, her family, and serving others. She was devoted to her church,
sang in the choir, served as a deacon, called on members to check on them, and enjoyed
planning and helping prepare meals for church events.
She doted on her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great
grandchildren. As her family grew, so did her love and devotion. From the oldest
grandchild down the line to the youngest great-grandchild, Grandma Centelle's arms
were always open and her heart more than ready to grow a little bigger. She made sure
that her children's wedding pictures and each of her grandchildren's baby pictures were
lovingly displayed in her den for everyone to see. She will be deeply missed and forever
in our hearts.
