Growing up in Oliver Springs Chelsey was a long-time member of Little Leaf Baptist Church. As a child, there were many adventures playing in the woods, building tree houses, riding go-carts, bikes, playing for the school’s middle school basketball team, and hanging out with all her cousins and friends.
Chelsey’s favorite pastime was spending time with her children and family. She enjoyed cooking, traveling, calling her mother and children at least seven times a day, and all things glitter. She always enjoyed the holidays and looked forward to decorating for every season. Chelsey was always sacrificial with her time and energy. Many times, she checked on her family even when she was sick herself. She had a giving heart and spirit that will forever be remembered by her loved ones. Being the oldest sibling in her immediate family she was often the bridge between her younger two siblings and even them with their mother at times. Chelsey was a social butterfly and never met a stranger. Her daughter professed her guilty pleasure was watching reality television when she got home from work.
Cherished memories will linger in the hearts of those who are left to mourn.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, between the hours of 11:00 am to 1:00 pm with a funeral service to start at 1:00 pm. A graveside service will follow at Carter’s Bluff Cemetery in Oliver Springs.
