Obituary for Celena (Lillian) Golias

Celena “Lillian” Golias, age 89 of Stratford, went home to be with the Lord and her very loving late husband, John F. Golias, Sr., on February 2, 2014 in the Lord Chamberlain Nursing Facility, Stratford. Lillian was born January 18, 1925 in Bridgeport, daughter of the late William and Edith Sheridan and had been a lifetime area resident. When she was younger she worked at McKesson’s and Robbins and then left to marry the love of her life and care for her children. She enjoyed needlepoint, bingo and doing her fill-in puzzles. She also had a great love of butterflies. Celena “Lillian” is survived by her loving and caring daughter, Celena Smith and her partner, Micheal Chemero; her special granddaughter, Katrina Lepley; her son, John F. Golias Jr. and his three daughters; her loving sisters, Edith Sheridan and Valerie Schuster and many nieces nephews and friends. She is also survived by a special friend, Josephine Mari, who she enjoyed spending every day with in the dining room at Lord Chamberlain for the past three years. She was predeceased by four brothers, William, Harold, Bobby and John and one sister, Marion. The family would like to offer a very special thank you to everyone at the Lord Chamberlain Nursing Facility, especially the third floor staff for all the wonderful care given to Celena. Thank you also, to the previous caregivers while Celena was in her apartment. Friends are invited to attend her funeral service celebrated by Pastor Robert Genevicz on Friday, February 7, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. in the William R. McDonald Funeral Home, 2591 Main St, Stratford.
