Cecelia Bryan

(October 23, 1960 - September 28, 2013)

When it came to Cecelia, she never lacked a sense of spontaneity. She’d think nothing of making plans at the last minute. But, that’s what made her so fun loving. If you were taking a trip to the shore, or even just hanging by the pool you could always count her in. However, when it came to anything involving snow, she would normally pass. For many years Celie drove bus #25 for the Pemberton School District. Her enthusiasm always showed through; she loved the students and the students loved her. Back home she was known for her wonderful cooking, especially her pasta pies. Likewise she loved to draw and paint. Cecelia was saved in 2004 and became an active member of Lighthouse Tabernacle church in Lumberton. While praising the Lord she was always thankful for the finest gifts he bestowed upon her, her children.
Cecelia is survived by her children: Eduardo Trani, III of Rockview, PA, Roberto Trani of Riverside, Russell Hubschman of Tabernacle and Savannah Hubschman, also of Tabernacle, her grandchildren: Anthony, Maria, Gina, Mariah and Ariela, her parents: Harry E. Bryan, Sr. of Hazelton, PA and Connie M. Payton of Enterprise, Fl. and her siblings: Harry E. Bryan, Jr. of Sebastian, Fl., Kathleen Pontiac of Oak Hill, Fl. and Cheryl L. Pontiac of Sanford, Fl. She was predeceased by her brother, Terrence L. Pontiac.
Come celebrate Cecelia’s 52 wonderful years (October 23, 1960 – September 28, 2013) Wednesday from 9-11 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, 337 Bridgeboro St., Riverside, where the service will be at 11. Interment private.

    For the better part of 20 years we have worked together, hung out at the lake, pool, beach, concerts, your living room, our busses, and plop a lawn chair where ever and share our ups and downs.
    I watched you get baptized, sing in the Chior ( I cried, you never knew) .
    At work we played our ” pranks”, made up our own words to songs on unsuspecting victims. Alot of laughter and I will cherish those memories.
    Savannah summed it up perfectly….
    Rest easy.
    I will see you on the other side Girl
    Thank you for being my friend
    I love you

    Celie, my mom left me a voicemail on a Sunday morning and I could hear in her voice that she was crying. I called her back and she told me the news of your passing. It broke my heart. It broke a lot of hearts. I heard a song the other night, called “Alabaster Box”. It made me think a lot of you. I take faith in knowing you are free of this life’s pains now, as I know you’re with Jesus. You’ve left behind a lot of people who will always love and remember you fondly. Take care, lady! Watch over us! And if by chance you see her, tell my Bammy I say hello! With love, Kristin.

Smile bright as you always have honey’!! Tell my Mom I love her and ya know she’s still gonna yell at you for squashing my foot in the coat room in 3rd. Love you always,,,

    Well, today was your funeral and I can’t shake this sadness. I know where you are and that is truly a blessing. I am so glad that you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! But my friend I miss you so much. We became very close after my mother passed. I will always treasure our long conversations about this life and the life to come. Your living it now, walking the streets of gold. I’m looking forward to seeing again, Celie. We had a lot of fun, we shared a lot of tears too. You will always be my friend and I will think of you often. I Love You!

    Celie, I heard of your passing the other day and instantly my mood saddened. We only worked together for a short time many years ago, but I never forgot all the kindness you showed me. That kindness I will keep with me always. My Condolences to all your family.

    To my “Cuz”…as we called one another. I’m so sorry we didn’t get a chance to reconnect after all these years,like we had intended to do. I have a heavy heart. You were so very loved by everyone that crossed your path…you will be missed. I have to believe that you are at peace now….knowing this is the only thing that helps. Happy Birthday my Cuz……We WILL see one another again!
    Peace and prayers for your family.

    I did not know you Cecelia, and yet through your beautiful mother, and all the love she has for all her children, I know you have been very special to many when here on earth. God must have had a special need to have called you home so young. May you find shelter in His love and grace
