Ceara grew up in Bowling Green and was a 2012 graduate of Bowling Green High School, graduating in the top 10 percent of her class and magna cum laude. While in school, Ceara was a member of the FFA and Alpha Beta Gamma. Ceara’s passion was track and cross county. She participated in four years of track and cross country from 2008-2012 and earned numerous all conference, all district, all state, and several school records while competing for the Lady Cats. According to coach and mentor Matt Chance, she was a fierce competitor but also one of the best leaders in the history of the cross-country program.
Upon graduating, she attended Culver Stockton College. While there, she ran cross-country for three years and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2016. She furthered her passion for nursing by attending the Blessing-Rieman Nursing Program in Quincy, Ill., where she earned her RN license.
After graduation she worked for Hannibal Regional Hospital doing inpatient rehabilitation before spending the last year and a half working at The Aviary Recovery Center in Eolia where she had just recently been promoted to the night charge nurse. As a nurse, Ceara was known for her compassion, outstanding bedside manners, and great intellect. Nursing and caring for others were her mission. She was a completely selfless individual.
Along with running, Ceara loved reading, horse back riding, hunting, cards, bowling and bargain shopping at thrift stores. She loved her animals and being with her friends.
When people were down, she had a way of turning them around. Her smile was infectious.
Serving as pallbearers will be Jeff Johnson, Kyle Elliott, Bill Hedgpeth, Matt Chance, Cody Watson and Donald Griffith. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be Camdon Elliott, Tucker Watson and Tyler Johnson.
