Chelsea’s children were her shining stars around which her life revolved. She had an infectious laugh and everyone who knew her spoke of her kind heart. She worked for many years as a CNA with homebound patients, which was the perfect job for Chelsea as her gifts of compassion and care were passed down to her from her mother Kim and great-grandmother, Mammy. She lovingly cared many years for special-needs patients, Tony and Josh. Her gift of giving continues as Chelsea chose to be an organ donor. Her acts of kindness are too numerous to count.

Chelsea was the shining star around which her Aunt Rhonda’s life revolved.

Her spirit of care and compassion will forever live on in our hearts.

A celebration of life service for Chelsea will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at Aunt Rhonda's house. All that loved Chelsea are invited. If you have any thoughts you can reach Rhonda at (615)473-6621.
