Chelsey was born Jan. 21, 1998 in Fairmont, Minn., to Dennis and Terri (Henry) Morgan. She attended elementary school in Lime Springs, Iowa. When Chelsey was in sixth grade, the family moved to Lyle, Minn.

While living in Lime Springs she attended the Lime Springs Methodist Church. Chelsey was a member of the Children’s Theater Troop, helped with Vacation Bible School and was Miss Sweet Corn in 2009. She participated in many activities including Tae Kwon Do, softball, swimming, go-carting, Girl Scouts and roller skating, but her biggest passion was the theater. While in Lyle, she participated in softball, basketball, choir, school newspaper and FFA where she was Lyle Chapter president for two years. She also took many leadership roles: she coordinated a scrap metal drive, was elected school board student rep and student council rep, volunteered for a food drive and Cure for Cancer and placed at state FFA Creed Speaking. She loved the Steelers and was a proud Athletics. True to her loving nature and wanting to make a difference, she recently returned from a mission trip to aid Superstorm Sandy victims.

She will be forever remembered for her bright smile, fun-loving bubbly personality, caring nature and determination. Her faith was important to her. Her friends were as well, as she constantly kept in touch through texting. If she believed in something, she fought for it, such as her drive to keep and expand FFA at her school. She was a humanitarian, but most importantly, she was a loving big sister, daughter and friend to all.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Florence Dobson; her grandfathers, Albert Morgan and Robert Henry; an uncle, Craig Henry; and her cat, Lucky.

She is survived by her parents, Dennis Morgan and Terri Morgan; three brothers, Dominic, Michael and Braxton; and maternal and paternal grandparents, Janet Henry and Randy and Ron Baker; her aunts, uncles and cousins; and many, many friends.
