January 5, 1928 ~ May 27, 2018

Our loving mother Cecelia Christe "Ceal" Roesler Wallum died peacefully May 27, 2018. She was 90 years old. Born January 5, 1928 in Jamestown, North Dakota.
Ceal married Marvin "Bud" Wallum June 27, 1946. Bud and Ceal moved to Vancouver, Washington in 1951. They were married 61 years. Bud died in 2007. Every month they said Happy Anniversary on the 27th. Ceal joined Bud in heaven on May 27th.
Ceal is survived by her children: Mark (Pat), Paul (Linda), John (Linda) and Laura (Jim) Fowler; seven grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; and her sister, Ann (Pete) Bleth.
Family was very important to Ceal. Ceal and Bud bought their dream home in 1960. Ceal loved to have large family dinners there. At Christmas she made thousands of homemade cookies and candies for family, friends and neighbors.
Ceal's hobbies included road trips with dad, crocheting, jigsaw puzzles, reading and gardening. Ceal retired after 20 years in Vancouver School District cafeterias preparing approx. two million meals to children and staff. Ceal loved to cook and bake no one ever left the school or her home hungry.
Ceal was preceded in death by her parents, Jacob (Ione) Roesler and Mabel (Ray) Dahl; sister, Jo Wells; and beloved grandson, Benjamin Fowler.
A graveside memorial service will be Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 12:30p.m., Garden of Prayer, Evergreen Memorial Gardens.
Our family is extremely grateful to Glenwood Place Senior Living staff for the wonderful care given to our mom.
