Celeste Katherine Damon died peacefully surrounded by her loving family at her home in Boston, after enduring pancreatic cancer with grace. She was 66.

She will be remembered for her elegance, warm spirit, generosity, inquisitiveness, optimism and love of life.

She was born on Oct. 12, 1955 in White Plains, N.Y. to Sylvia and Walter Keusch. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Ohio Wesleyan University and worked as a social worker before starting her family with David Wetherell in North Andover. She was a consummate mother, dedicating her life to her children.

As a seasonal resident of Chilmark, she cherished her Island home, spending summers painting, playing golf, tending her robust vegetable and flower gardens, and entertaining family and friends with delicious home-cooked meals. She spent her winter months in Naples, Fla., where she continued her love of golf, tennis and pickleball with many cherished friends.

She served as a member of the board of trustees at The Pike School and, most recently, Boston Ballet. She was passionate about many charitable organizations, from Massachusetts General Hospital to preserving the raw beauty of Martha’s Vineyard.

She is survived by her mother Sylvia Keusch; her children Jarrett Wetherell, Julia LeClair and Sarah Wetherell; grandchildren Chloe and Charlie LeClair; stepsons Kyle and Matt Damon; and siblings Suzanne Saevitz, Ronald Keusch, Sandra Gollogly and Kenneth Keusch. She was predeceased by her father Walter Keusch and her second husband Kent Damon.

Her family is appreciative of the excellent care she received from Dr. David Ryan and his staff at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.

A private service will be held for family and friends in Boston on April 9.

Donations can be made to the infusion and oncology department at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital (mvhospital.org/charitable-giving/donate) and Vineyard House (vineyardhouse.org/donate-now).
