Chelsea was a 2007 graduate of Metamora High School and attended Illinois Central College.
Chelsea's hobbies and interests included sports, outdoors, and cooking. Her family was very important to her. She was the oldest of four sisters, and held a close bond with each of them. Chelsea's beauty was apparent on the inside and out. She had great compassion for others in need.
She had many dreams and goals, despite difficult obstacles. Whatever life threw at her, her strength showed through, which was one of her most admirable traits. Chelsea will be dearly missed by her family, friends and coworkers.
Being known for her independence, it was fitting that fireworks occurred minutes after she passed. Independence Day will always be Chelsea's day of remembrance and celebration.
Chelsea was a baptized member of Christ Lutheran Church in Peoria prior to the family transferring their membership to Trinity Lutheran Church.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 10, 2013, at Trinity Lutheran Church with the Rev. Mark Nelson and Uncle Rev. Jay Frazell officiating. Visitation will be Tuesday evening at Mason Funeral Home in Germantown Hills from 4 to 7 p.m. and also 30 minutes prior to the Wednesday service at the church. Burial will be in Springdale Cemetery in Peoria.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in her name may be given to Gift of Hope Tissue and Donor Network; or Warren and Helen Frazell (Chelsea's Great Grandparents) Mission Fund C/O of Christ Lutheran Church.
