Courtney Dawn Keli age 29, of Cascade, WI passed away on March 8th, 2018 at home. She was born to Roger Keli and Doreen M. Keli (Van Hoorne) on September 8th, 1988. Courtney has joined her family members in heaven. She was preceded in death by her father, Roger, maternal grandparents Robert and Delores Van Hoorne, and paternal grandparents Frank and Lorraine Keli.
Courtney was a graduate of Plymouth High School and went on to graduate from Ripon College with Bachelor's degrees in Psychology, Anthropology, and History. While at Ripon Courtney made many friends and was a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority. She was employed by Anita's Garden of Plymouth, WI for many years where she shared her talents.
Courtney was nothing short of an angel on earth. She always helped and loved everyone to her fullest, and her kindness had no bounds. Courtney had the best sense of humor and brought love and light to everyone and everything she did. Her passion for reading was astounding, and she often read a novel a day as well as putting her skills to use through book reviewing and editing. She was a fantastic cook and could just whip something up that would wow everyone. Courtney loved animals and spent time caring for her puppy, Colonel Klink, and her cat, Bob Seger. Courtney enjoyed music as well as spending time with family- especially brother, Cody, who she proclaimed as her best friend and her world. Courtney was a fighter and stood up to any challenge she was given. There’s no way to sum up how truly great she was.
Courtney is survived by her mom, Doreen Keli, the best brother in the whole world, Cody Keli, sisters Kelly Keli and Jeni Keli, and her nieces and nephew. She is also survived by her uncle, Robert C. Van Hoorne, aunt, Dawn Shively (David), and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins. Courtney is also survived by her many friends who adored her including some of her best friends, Laura, Rachel, Krista, and Jared just to name a few. Condolences may be sent to W8002 Cty Hwy F, Cascade, WI 53011.
A celebration of life to honor Courtney will be held at a later date.
Soar!! My littlest angel… until we meet again. I forever love you. ~Mom
