Chelsey Noel Willhite - Obituary
Chelsey Noel (Perrymore) Willhite
With her family by her side Chelsey transitioned into eternity on Saturday, November 10, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. From the moment she was born on January 4, 1992 in Muskogee, Oklahoma her parents Mark and Jackie Perrymore knew they had a special girl from God. Chelsey graduated from Muskogee High School in 2010 and later was united in marriage to Noah Willhite on May 23, 2015. Together they were blessed with two amazing boys, Keegan Ryan and Landen Sean. To say that the boys were Chelsey's life is an understatement. She strived each day to give the boys the best that she could and would attend every ball game to cheer them on. If Chelsey wasn't at the ball field coaching you could find her at home cooking a great meal or working on her latest DIY project or redecorating the house. She was a proud "BOY MOMMA" and a wife. For years Chelsey worked at Brown Shoe Fit in Muskogee.
Left to cherish the memories of Chelsey are her husband of the home Noah, two sons; Keegan and Landen, parents Mark and Jackie Perrymore, brother Sean Thompson and his wife Stephanie and sister Macey Morales and her husband Gilberto, her grandmother, Frankie Everitt, along with many other dear family members and friends. The family has entrusted Lakeland Florist of Muskogee to assist in the floral arrangements for Chelsey's service. 918-687-7574
