I’m so saddened by this news, but I know that Courtney is no longer struggling or in pain. She was always a joy to work with in class and on stage, and she was such a valued member of so many Quaker Productions. She will be deeply missed. May God grant all her family and friends comfort, strength, and peace during this difficult time.

I loved sharing FB posts with Courtney cool things like ANYTHING DISNEY- FACTS, PHOTOS, MOVIE LINES… or just crafts and ideas. Inspirational or Spiritual Quotes or Pics. Anything about the MICHIGAN RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL.

We wore our purple and shared in about EPILEPSY AWARENESS- Fundraisers, info, stories. She loved ANIMALS enjoy pics of kittens, puppies …well any animal she didn’t like ANIMAL ABUSE but, LOVED A HAPPY ENDING OF RESCUED ANIMAL.

She had a wonderful BIG smile, enjoyed singing. She was a wonderful loving person and she touched everyone who met her. She LOVED her FAMILY!!!

Keeping our family in my thoughts & prayers Hugs to all of you…. Julie, Emily, Brain, Aunt Joyce and Uncle John…if you need anything Julie I’m here for you.

May her FAITH and YOURS give you comfort.
I’m truly saddened by your loss…but, HAPPY to know I’ll be with her again 🙂 Love to you all…Karen, John, Billie & John XOXOXO

Julie, Emmie and all those who loved Courtney, I’m so sorry for your enormous loss. Know that you’re all in my prayers. Although I never had the privilege of meeting Courtney, this remarkable young woman has left footprints on the hearts of all those who knew her.

I was privileged to work with Courtney at LCC in theatre and music. She was a delight! Whenever we saw each other, there was hugs and kisses and we told each other what we had been up to. I was crushed to learn of her passing. Her courage and gorgeous smile will be sorely missed in this often cruel world. She brought much needed light to everyone she met. My thoughts are with Courtney’s family.
