Celia “Cel” Nancy Brewster, 82, passed away on October 6, 2019, in Orlando, Florida. She was born on August 23, 1937 in Jonesville, Virginia to Jacob and Emily Poteet.
Cel grew up in Jonesville and, upon graduating from Pennington High School in 1956, moved to Maryland and later relocated to Florida, where she met and married Bill Brewster in 1962. They were married 54 years before Bill passed away in 2017.
Cel is survived by her daughters Alicia and Vicki and son-in-law Ric, her sister Jean and brother-in-law Steve, her brother Tony and sister-in-law Marilyn, her grandchildren Austin, Lauren, Cailin, Emily, Trenton and Caden, many nieces and nephews, and dear friends.
Cel was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Cecil, Ray and Garland, brother-in-law Robert, and sister-in-law Alice.
Cel worked at Belk’s when her children were young and later enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom. She volunteered for WIC and was part of the Red Hat Ladies. She was loved by all, was a true friend, and did not know a stranger.
