Celeste Rice Kimball
Licensed Funeral Director
Celeste Rice Kimball joined Rice Funeral Home as a licensed apprentice in 2001 and completed her course of studies at the Funeral Institute of New England (FINE) in Westwood in 2003, where she received High Honors. She became a fully licensed Funeral Director in 2004.
She is also a 1983 graduate of Doherty Memorial High School, the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, 1987 and Northeastern University in Boston, 1990.
Celeste previously worked as a Physician Assistant for 12 years, but decided to change careers to continue the family tradition of funeral service. She is passionate about pre-planning and she feels that a small family-run funeral home is able to provide individualized, personalized and empathetic services for families at their time of greatest need.
Celeste and her husband Kerry have three children. She is a member of the National Funeral Directors Association and Massachusetts Funeral Directors Association.
Celeste is also a Notary Public, providing all services free of charge.
