Callie Faye Nelson passed away in August, 2011.

She was born on Sept. 21, 1968 in East Chicago, Ind., to David (Rhonda) Price and Alice (Bishop) Maloney.

She is survived by her former husband Daniel (Susan) Nelson Sr., daughter Lorelei Nelson and son Daniel Nelson, Jr.

She is also survived by three siblings; Char (Augie) Herbst, Tommy Palmer and David Weston Price, as well as aunts and uncles, several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Earl and Bonnie Bishop and paternal grandfather Westley Middleton. Her paternal grandmother Elva Middleton survives.

She was a 1986 graduate of Chesterton High School. She also attended Dental Vocational School, and was a Dental Assistant. She started her career with Dr. Virgil Gassoway, and went on to work for Dr. Shideler, Dr. McDonalds and Dr. Haylick, where she had many co-workers she loved working with and with whom she became close friends.

She always loved her career and had a natural ability to comfort her patients, especially young children.

She was a beautiful person, a devoted mother with a never ending love for her children, who has touched many lives and will forever be missed. Her personal motto was “live, laugh and love.”

A memorial service for Callie will take place on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 11 a.m., with Pastor Loraineri Rizer officiating, at the White-Love Funeral Home, 525 South 2nd Street, Chesterton, Indiana.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 from 10 a.m. until the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Victims Assistance Program for the state of Wyoming in memory of Callie, in the care of White-Love Funeral Home.

A special thank you and God Bless to all of her friends in Douglas, Wyoming.
