Celia is survived by her sisters Amada and husband Ben Besabe, Herminia Ocampo, Teresa and husband Jim Bair, Carmen Wickham, and brother Erasto Ocampo and wife Yolanda; son John Foster and his wife Susan of Rohnert Park, daughter Diana and her husband Steve Giambrone of Folsom, and son Jay Foster of Camarillo; grandchildren Gabriel Maggini and wife Marcy, Bianca Noelle Leard, Natasha Hudson, John Benjamin Foster and wife Eren, Jake Giambrone, Ely Sirota-Foster, Ruby Sirota-Foster, Arlo Sirota-Foster, Micky Sirota-Foster, Rae Sirota-Foster; great-grandchildren Zackary Leard, Noah Leard, Mia Foster, Grace Maggini-Foster, Kaiya Maggini-Foster, Kaleb Maggini-Foster; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Born in Manila, Philippines in 1925, she married John in 1949. They later sailed into the bay through the Golden Gate and the City of San Francisco became one of her favorite places. As an US Air Force spouse, she established safe, nurturing homes for her family at outposts including Bismarck, North Dakota; Wichita, Kansas; San Juan, Puerto Rico, Manila, Philippines; and Sacramento, California. After John's death, Celia started her career with the California Department of Motor Vehicles and retired in 1987 from the headquarters office in Sacramento. She travelled extensively in retirement with her family and friends. She toured Europe, Israel, Egypt, Japan, Philippines, and she sailed on the inaugural cruise of the Queen Mary 2. Celia was the eldest among her siblings and as matriarch of the family she took great pride in keeping her extended family connected. She regularly attended mass at St. John's Catholic Church in Folsom. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations in Celia's name be made to Mercy Hospice of Folsom or St. John's.
