Chloe Love Conn
Chloe Love Conn
Our days with you were numbered, but our memories will live for eternity.
Our sweet Chloe Love Conn, was born December 5, 2002 in Detroit Lakes Minnesota. It was a cold day but you brought the sunshine that never set.
God was ready to welcome her back home, he has much bigger plans for Chloe. Her spirit was welcomed on May 31, 2017 while sweet Chloe was exploring God's most beautiful place, Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe, California.
During Chloe's time on earth she made her presence wherever she went. Chloe was smart and determined, bold and brave, passionate and proud, so childlike yet and had an ancient soul. During Chloe's time with us she did everything with greatness.
Chloe loved to travel and explore with her family. She was her mama's best friend, her go to girl, her "favorite daughter" as mom would always say. She found her happiness from girls trips, telling stories, helping others and making people laugh. Chloe loved to read, knit headbands, loved to cook, (and eat) learn AND teach. Chloe just completed her fourth year as a DLMS Laker, and was about to step foot in the High School as a freshman. Chloe was halfway to reaching her goal of eight years with a 4.0 GPA. After graduation, Chloe's plan was to attend the University of Minnesota and then become a forensic scientist. She was going to be a Gopher just to make her daddy proud. Chloe's boat days, Sunday drives, and night time stargazing were some of her favorite moments with her "El padre." Chloe also shared her life with one older brother Christian, and her aunt, Ashley Love. The three had a typical sibling relationship, but their love for each other was everything but typical. Chloe will be holding their hearts with her new angelic hands, ever so gently in her new home, where she will welcome all of us one day.
Chloe loved animals, all shapes, colors and sizes. She was going to grow up and have a pet llama, a goat, and a corgi named Scotty. But her favorites were her very own "fur siblings", Shuggy and her "pup a dup" Scout.
Chloe's life without dance would have been "pointe-less", as Chloe would say. She started dancing at the age of three and had just celebrated her five year anniversary led by her mentor, Ronita Hackel, at Center Stage Dance Academy. Chloe spent the majority of her 14 years making memories with her dance family. It is with them she built friendships and lived the most fulfilling of days. The girls, and they know who they are, created the most powerful bond that will continue to grow over the years. Chloe's light will shine bright in each and every one of them through the years to come.
Amongst the beautiful friendships Chloe has left behind, are also the family that helped to raise her. She is survived by her parents Jerod and Stacy Conn, and her older brother Christian. Her grandparents Jerry and Charlotte Conn, grannie Janalee, grandpa Gary Wicker, all of Detroit Lakes MN, and Thomas Cornwell of Carson City NV. She is also remembered by her very special "surrogates", Pammy Darling and Mark Heard. Also keeping Chloe's earthly light shining are her very beautiful aunts and her amazing uncles. Ryan and Carrie Cornwell, Ashley Love Hagerman, Michelle Conn, Harley and Cheyenne Kilfian, Joe and Lindsey Caskey, Garrett and Dustin Heard and family, and Anthony and Ashley Reichling. Some very special cousins who Chloe loved dearly, Jacob and Josh Tucker, Jaxson and Jameson Cornwell, Haley, Brielle, and Brenner Kilfian, and the "E" squad. We will watch those sweet faces for new freckles, knowing they are kisses from our very own angel.
Chloe's life will be remembered and her contagious smile will still make its presence with us. Chloe was a powerful young lady and God needed her more. It has been said- Faith, Hope and Love but the greatest is LOVE. As Chloe's parents we would like to thank you for loving our girl the way that you have. To the friends we have that are more like family, the coworkers, the dance moms, the support of our community, it has all been indescribable. The vision of her dancing on the mountains of heaven will be forever etched within us. Our girl may no longer be with us on earth but she sure is making some noise in heaven.
We will Celebrate Chloe's Life on Saturday, June 10 at 10AM in the Detroit Lakes High School Gymnasium. Visitation for Chloe will be held Friday, June 9 at David Donehower Funeral Home from 5pm-7pm and continue at the Detroit Lakes High School one hour prior to services. Chloe will be laid to rest at Oak Grove Cemetery in Detroit Lakes.
