Born to Raymond Morris and Dorothy Morris-Harris on September 15, 1955 in Los Angeles, CA. She was the second of three children. Her oldest brother, Daniel Jerome Morris preceded her in death. Celestine was baptized at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church of Los Angeles. She grew up and was educated in Los Angeles. She attened St. Cecilia Elementary Catholic School. She then went on to Los Angeles High School where she graduated. Celestine met Rick Poindexter who became the father of her son, Maurice Jerome Morris. Celestine worked for the Department of Water and Power for a few years until she became a member of the International Longshore and Warehouseman's Union (ILWU) in 1983 where she worked as a Marine Clerk in Local 63. She remained a proud member until the Lord called her home on December 18, 2010. Celestine was well known and loved by everyone she knew and met. She would give you the shoes off her feet. If they weren't your size, she would buy you your size. Her favorite things to do were to go shopping and she loved to attend parties. She was a loving mother to her son, Maurice and would always refer to him by saying "Here goes my Daddy." She was crazy in love with her "mini-me" granddaughter, Shai'anne. Celestine leaves to cherish her memories: her loving son, Maurice Jerome Morris; her mother, Dorothy Morris-Harris; brother, Christopher Thomas Moore; granddaughter, Shai'anne Marie Morris; sister-in-law, Dora Colbert; daughter-in-law, Tanya Morris; goddaughter, Jaylena Patterson; godson, Marcus Crocket; and a host of family and friends; and her beloved dogs, Max and Lexy. Funeral service will be held at 9am on Monday, December 27, 2010 at St. Cecilia Church, 4230 S. Normandie in Los Angeles. Burial to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
