Emma Celia Deaver was born on May 14, 1924 at Lake Junaluska, N.C. Her family moved to Black Mt., N.C., where Celia graduated from local schools. She went to Burlingame, CA to be with her brother and found work as a telephone operator. Years later she moved to Auburn to be with her family and worked in a ladies fine clothing store. One day a young man from a farm town in Illinois, by the name of Donald Boucher, walked in and it was love at first sight. They were married several months later. Celia graduated from ARC and Sac State with honors and then worked for Weinstocks Dept. Store while Donald became an auditor for the Cal. Highway Patrol. In retirement they enjoyed many trips to Arizona for the winter. Celia took up bowling and attained a 150 average. They were blessed with 61 years of marriage and love for each other before her death. She was four days shy of her 93 birthday when God took her.
