Celia Sweat Obituary

Celia Faye Sweat, age 82, of China, TX, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2023. She was born in Fort Worth, TX on March 10, 1941, to Cecil Estes Stephens and Vera Kate Browning Stephens.

Celia graduated from Starks High School and was a member of the Bengal Guard Band as a rope twirler. After completing High School, she trained and worked as a beautician, and later worked in the oil industry in bookkeeping and sales.

“Grammy” was a regal, elegant, classy lady. Never demanding, very thoughtful, and tried to never be a burden on anyone if she could help it. To call her a “green thumb” would be an understatement, her flowers and roses were beautiful, and she had an eye for beauty in landscaping that won her “yard of the month” on multiple occasions. Celia was also a great shot and loved to hunt, a good day for her would be shooting her limit then heading out to go shopping with her friends “The Golden Girls”. Celia was a devoted Christian believer, who was an active prayer warrior. Her faith and friendship will be forever missed by those she leaves behind.

Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Chad Kolander and wife, Laura, of China, TX and Kris Kolander and wife, Devon, of China, TX; sister, Sue Spangler; grandsons, Colt Kolander and Hunter Kolander; beloved dog, Snickers; and a host of numerous family members, friends, and loved ones.

Preceding Celia in death is her husband, Daniel Sweat; daughter, Katie Elizabeth Kolander; granddaughter, Tori Kolander; and brother-in-law, Harry Spangler.
