On Nov. 8, 1936, Cecelia was united in marriage to Lloyd Wolter at the Methodist Parsonage in Winnebago. Together the couple made their home in Granada where they were blessed with three daughters, Marlys, Ginny and Bev.

Church was very important to Cecelia as was evident by the fact that she was a very active member of the Granada United Methodist Church. She taught Sunday School, was the Sunday School Superintendent, sang in the adult choir and directed the choir. When not involved with a church activity, Cecelia enjoyed gardening and crocheting. Family was very important to Cecelia. She looked forward to attending family functions and babysitting grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Cecelia worked for a short time outside of the home but treasured the opportunity to be a stay at home mom and be there with her daughters. In 1993, Cecelia and Lloyd moved to Fairmont. Lloyd passed away in 1994. In 2001, Cecelia moved to the St. Luke’s Assisted Living, in Blue Earth, to be closer to her family.
