Cecelia Dorothy Sierocuk was born August 6, 1927, in Thorp, WI, the third daughter of Frank and Victoria (Obrycki) Sierocuk. Celia grew up on the family farm just north of Thorp, attending Yeager School.

On August 27, 1949, she was united in marriage to Robert J. Weseman of Chicago, in Withee, WI. They bought a farm north of her homestead in 1950, and started a family, one daugher and four sons. They moved their family to Chicago in 1963. After the youngest finished school, Celia went to work as a cook for the Sisters of Mercy at Mercy Hall in Chicago where she worked for 25 years. Her duties there were making breakfast, lunch or dinner for 60 sisters. She used some of her recipes from home but had to double them. She also enjoyed cooking and baking for Silver and Golden Jubilees for the sisters.

Celia is survived by her daughter, Beverly (Fred) Miczek, Crest Hill, IL; and sons: Wayne, Morris, IL, Mark (Susan), Elkhorn, WI, Todd, Crest Hill, IL; and grandson Robert A. Weseman, Chicago, IL. Three sisters: Lucy (Steve) Wojtowicz, Chicago, IL, Lillian (Francis) Hedler, Thorp, WI, and Harriet (Ray) Kollack, Holcomb, WI; and brother, Marion (Pat) Sierocuk, Englewood, FL.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert, in 1984; and son, Douglas, in 2003; two brothers: Tony and Henry; and one sister, Verne Rugger.
