Celeste Ann Brophy

1964 - 2022

Celeste Ces” Nudy-Brophy, 57 of Malvern, PA, passed away Tuesday, February 8th after a long courageous battle with cancer. She was a dedicated and selfless woman, survived by her beloved husband James Jim” Brophy and four loved children, Eric, Paul, Heather, and Adam. Adored daughter of Dominick (Joe) and the late Jean Nudy. Admired sister to Dominic Joseph (Carol), Raymond (Irene), Nicholas (Darlene), Eda (William), James (Lisa), and Robert, and a lovely sister-in law to Sharon (Ray) and Colleen. Celeste was also a loving and charismatic aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Family was at the forefront of Celestes life. Friday nights were meant for Pizza with the family, where her stories and contagious laugh filled the room. On the weekend youd find Celeste on the sidelines of basketball and football games cheering on her boys. Holidays were reserved for hours of baking, passing on traditions from her mother to her own daughter. Celeste was known to be the life of the party, dedicating time to decorating and planning parties for those she loved and admired. Regardless of the trials and tribulations Celeste faced, her selfless nature never dwindled.

The beach held a special place in Celestes heart. The beach is a place Celeste associated with love as she fell in love with her husband of 30 years down in Sea Isle City, NJ. The beach became a place of peace and prosperity as she watched her children grow up down the shore whilst never missing an opportunity for a family round of mini golf and celebratory ice cream. Anyone who knew Celeste knew better than to interrupt her mid-read while sitting in the sand.

Even among the darkest days, Celeste was an avid and affable lover of life. Throughout her battle with cancer, Celeste remained a beacon of light and continuously kept her radiating smile on her face. Her light, tenacity, and love will continue on in all of those who she inspired.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory to Unite for Her are appreciated.
