One of Celeste’s biggest passions was the Lewis & Clark Humane Society because of her fondness for animals. Celeste had a love for all her friends in Helena and would go out often to visit and eat with them. At a young age she took ballet lessons which gave her a passion for dancing which followed her through her entire life.
Celeste also liked to make jewelry, crochet, knit, play games on her Ipad, and draw pictures while watching her favorite shows on television. A lot of time was spent on her “petio” with her kitties, admiring them and telling them how much she loved them and how beautiful they were. Her personality was one of fun and shock. She liked nothing better than pulling pranks on all she knew. She loved to laugh and make others laugh with her. Her stories were fascinating to say the least. She was a beautiful, compassionate soul, a gift to all that knew her. Her smile will be missed by many.
Celeste is survived by her daughter Lisa Gaskell, son Damian, stepson Bryce Rogers, granddaughter Kayla Wright Holmes and her fur babies Sydney and Rudy. She is also survived by her sisters Elaine O’Fallon and Debbie Murray (Rick) and brother David Tegg. Also by numerous nieces and nephews: Christy Fitzgerald (Jarod), Shannon, Emmaleigh, Jacob, and Owen; Ryan O’Fallon (Kelly); Andy O’Fallon; Michael O’Fallon (Lisa), Mikaela, Samantha and Hannah; Mandy Tegg and Wes Tegg; Lori Murray, Kassy Elliott, Lia, Julia Elliott, Andrew Elliott and Jen Murray Simmons (Chad) and Celeste’s countless very special friends.
