Cole, Celia Marasco
Celia Marasco Cole, 59, of Radford, was received by the Lord on the morning of February 7, 2008, at 9:25.
Celia loved taking care of children which led her to a nursing career working with newborns. When she and Johnny started their own family she was the best mother two children could have. She enjoyed boating and swimming in the summer months. In the fall she enjoyed her time watching and keeping up with college football. She was a very talented and creative wife and mother and enjoyed decorating her home for the different seasons of the year. Celia’s greatest joy was serving her Lord and living her life for Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Lottie Austin Marasco. Survivors include her husband of 39 years, Johnny Cole; daughter and son-in-law, Natasha and Rich Pappas; son and daughter-in-law, Joshua and Nikki Cole; four grandchildren, McKenzie and Caroline Pappas and Shayna Wiswell and Jensyn Cole; and many other family members and friends.
