Celeste Alyda Jongeward-Ziemann, known to us as Celeste Jongeward, was
born to Cyreen and Adeline Jongeward on April 23, 1951, in Aurora, CO.
She passed away on May 23, 2024, leaving behind a profound legacy of
love, resilience, and infectious joy. A resident of Lake Havasu City for
34 years, her spirit was as vibrant and warm as the Arizona sun. Celeste
was a woman of remarkable strength and determination, qualities that
shone brightly even in her quiet battle with cancer. Her grace and
courage in the face of adversity were a testament to her unfaltering
spirit and admirable character.

Celeste was a Master of Culinary Arts, delighting everyone with her
skills in the kitchen during her tenure as a chef at a local hospital.
She was a firm believer in the philosophy of "dress presentable, not
shabby," a testament to her love for life, beauty, and the joy she found
in the simple act of living each day to its fullest.

Celeste was a loving wife to Vern Ziemann, and a doting mother to her
sons, Andrew and Austin. Her love for her family was immeasurable, her
devotion to them unwavering. She was the heart of their home, her warmth
and love radiating through every corner. Celeste is preceded in death by
her parents, Cyreen and Adeline, and her loving son, Austin. It is this
love for her family and friends that leaves an indelible mark on all
those who knew her. She is survived by her husband, Vern; her son,
Andrew; and her cousins, Marykay and Connie. A beacon of strength,
resilience, and warmth, Celeste Jongeward's memory will continue to
inspire and guide us.

In Celeste's honor, we invite you to share your memories, anecdotes, and
photographs on her memorial page. Your stories will help keep her
vibrant spirit alive, reminding us of all the unique and wonderful woman
she was. May her memory bring comfort and warmth to all of us in the
days to come. Rest easy now, Celeste. You are pain free.
