CULLMAN — Celia Hope Nunnelley

Celia Hope Nunnelley, 56, of Cullman passed from this life on July 17, 2013 from cervical cancer. Celia was born Aug. 2, 1956, in Arab, to Nadine A. and C. M. Nunnelley. The family will announce a Celebration of Life service at a later date.

Peck Funeral Home assisted with final arrangements.

Celia graduated from Fairview High School in 1974. She worked at the Cullman Public Library from 1980 until 1992, where she was able to help thousands of people, young and old, with books and with genealogical research. She helped establish the Cullman Animal Shelter. Her love of kids and animals kept her busy until failing health caused her to become home-bound. Even after having to quit work, she was still able to help raise her "nephew", Lakota York. She enjoyed basket weaving, painting and sewing.  

Celia is survived by M. Frank Kinser; her mother, Nadine Nunnelley of Prattville; sisters, Carolyn (Tom) Mullenux of Hartwell, Ga., and Joan (Mike) Powell of Montgomery; brothers, Robert (Margie) Nunnelley of Millbrook and David Nunnelley of Nashville; sister-in-law, Mary Sue Bowen of Good Hope; a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins; and extended family, Karla Kinser and Lakota York of Cullman.

The family would like to extend its deepest thanks to the staff of River City Care and Rehab in Decatur, the staff of North Alabama Hospice, the staff of Alacare Cullman and Birmingham, as well as the UAB Radiation Oncology and Gynecology departments. Your care and compassion for Celia over the past year has been outstanding.  

In lieu of flowers, the family would like to request donations be made to the Brook Hill Ovarian Cancer Foundation, the American Cancer Society, or any charity of your choice.
