Life remembered: Celia Hartman

Celia Hartman was a teacher in the River Ridge, Ill., school district who died of COVID-19 on Jan. 3.

HANOVER, Ill. — Although her favorite color was blue, Celia Hartman loved sunflowers. She decorated her home and classroom with the blooms and carried them in her wedding bouquet.

The bright yellow flowers were a fitting hue for the woman who constantly brought sunshine into the lives of others.
