With heavy hearts, the Nelson family would like to announce that Brinley Nelson took her first steps into heaven July 15th, 2022 while doing what she loved, traveling, visiting and being with family. No longer to be confined to a wheelchair and able to run, hug and embrace those she loves.

Brinley was born to Kai and Clarissa Nelson on January 29th, 2008 in Gilbert, AZ. Brinley came to earth with an amazing spirit, but her body was afflicted with Cerebral Palsy and other related conditions. Unable to walk or talk, Brinley still touched many with her amazingly warm smile, beautiful hair and joyful laugh that would light up anyone’s day. She found joy being with and around her family. She loved to travel and participate in anything she could be a part of. Many surrounded Brinley in support physically, spiritually and with so much love. She loved and cherished all her friends. Faced with many challenges in her life Brinley found strength to do more than ever expected. Brinley loved in life, fun adventures with her family like hiking, biking, running. She also loved music, movement, going on walks and laughter. Her physical presence will be missed, but we are forever grateful to our Savior, Jesus Christ, for His atoning sacrifice and for the knowledge that we will be together again as an eternal family. We look forward to and know we will be with her again.

Our Sweet Girl is survived by her parents Kai and Clarissa Nelson and siblings, Kacy Nelson, Taylor Nelson, Porter Nelson, Chauncy Nelson and Owen Nelson.
