NEWPORT NEWS - Cecelia Inglis Darracott Hauser of Newport News, died on January 14, 2013.
She was born in Petersburg, Virginia on December 5, 1925, and lived in Colonial Heights for most of her childhood.
Cecelia was the daughter of the late Charles Risdon Darracott, Sr. and Katherine Boisseau Cousins Darracott. Cecelia's father died when she was eleven years old, so her oldest brother, Charlie took on the responsibility of providing for the family and found employment with the Newport News Shipyard. The Darracott family moved from Colonial Heights to Newport News, where Cecelia attended Newport News High School and graduated on February 4, 1943.
She married Alfred W. Hauser in 1944 and their children, Lee and Janet were born and raised in Newport News.

Cecelia was an avid reader of mystery novels. She also loved music, especially classical, including composers Bach and Handel although Handel's Messiah was her favorite. She also had a love and compassion for animals that she affectionately called "critters", but the greatest joy and love of her life, were her children and grandchildren. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and she will always be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother.
Cecelia was preceded in death by her brothers, Charles Risdon Darracott, Jr. and Dabney Cousins Darracott.
She is survived by her son, Lee Warren Hauser and his wife Vicki Miles Hauser of Williamsburg; one daughter, Janet Page Hauser, of Richmond; five grandchildren - Amy Hart, of Williamsburg, Matthew Hauser of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Lindsay Schwarz of Austin, Texas, Brandon Slazyk of Richmond, and Ashley Petet of Richmond.

No. 45 - I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
- G. F. Handel
I know that my
Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
And though worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God.
For now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of them that sleep.
(I Corinthians 15:20)
