She was born on October 11, 1989, in Georgetown, Ohio to Diana Wilson of Ansonia, and the late Marion Nelson of Stout, Ohio, who passed away in July 2020.
Courtney was born with everything stacked against her. She had cerebral palsy and scoliosis which confined her to a wheelchair or bed. She had several other health issues she had to cope with on a daily basis, but in spite of this, she was happy. She loved to be outside and to take boat rides. She loved to meet people and make new friends. She loved to laugh, play and make noise. Anyone who met her couldn't help but fall in love with her. She brightened any room she was in and that light will forever be missed by anyone fortunate enough to have felt it.
In addition to her mother, Courtney is survived by her sister, Cheyenna Nelson of Cincinnati, Ohio; her brother, Jeremy Nelson and his wife Melissa, of Largo, Florida; her step-father, David Bowers of Ansonia; her step-sisters, Caitlyn Blowers and her husband L.J. of Woodington, Ohio, and Taylor Bowers of Bellefontaine, Ohio; her step-grandparents, Lowell and Katherine Bowers of Ansonia; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
A private celebration of Courtney's life will be held at the convenience of the family.
The family has entrusted Tribute Funeral Homes with the arrangements.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Tribute Funeral Homes to help offset final expenses.
