Obituary: Feleshia LeeAnn Brabham
Feleshia LeeAnn Brabham, age 22, was taken from us much too soon when she passed away from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident Saturday, Nov. 22, 2008.
Feleshia was born March 14, 1986, in Coquille, Ore. She moved with her family when she was four to Bigfork, Mont., where she spent all her growing-up years in the Flathead Valley. She attended her elementary years at the schools in Bigfork before moving to the Kalispell area, where she met and married her high school sweetheart, Trent.
Feleshia and her new family later moved to Chino Valley, Ariz., where she worked with her dad at the Chino Valley Funeral Home. Feleshia grew up to be an amazing woman, full of laughter, a great sense of humor, and full of life. She always had a smile on her face and always had a positive attitude regardless of the circumstances around her. All who knew Feleshia and those who she helped at the funeral home knew she had a big heart and was willing to do anything for anybody, and was always there when someone needed her. Feleshia was very family-oriented and believed that family was everything - especially her children and her husband. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, aunt and cousin who loved planning big dinners and events with her family. Feleshia was a very precious gem who was extremely loved and who will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Feleshia is survived by her husband Trent Brabham of Prescott Valley; daughters Alexia and Makayla; father and stepmother Jayson and Darla Watkins of Chino Valley; mother Shawnaree Duncan of Chino Valley; father and mother-in-law Joe and Paulina Brabham, Rita and Dale Elgaen; brother Jayson Watkins; sister Kayla Watkins; stepbrothers Donald and Richard and wife Alecsis; stepsister Tasha and husband Joey all of Chino Valley; brothers-in-law Chance Brabham and Thor Elgaen; great-grandmother Mary Ash; grandparents Paul and Diana Watkins, Mike and Rose Culbertson, and Lenore Marhing; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
