KELSEY's Story

WINTHROP - Kelsey Ann Stoneton, 17, of Winthrop passed away peacefully on August 2, 2014 surrounded by loving family and friends.

Kelsey was born March 8, 1997 at Inland Hospital in Waterville, the daughter of Joel and Kim (Gould) Stoneton.

Kelsey was a fantastic athlete, an honor student, an incredibly beautiful girl inside and out. Kelsey's smile is what everyone remembers about her. That smile was contagious, that smile lit up a room, that smile made everyone's day brighter and better. Kelsey had a work ethic not found in teenagers these days, she set goals and worked hard to achieve those goals. Kelsey couldn't make her parents any prouder of her than they are. To know Kelsey was to love Kelsey.

Kelsey was predeceased by her Papa Stephen Gould.

Kelsey was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by her parents, Joel and Kim Stoneton ; sister and best friend, Haley Margaret Stoneton; stepmother, Holly Lachance and stepsisters, Heidi and Hayley Lachance; and family friend Corey Rubchinuk, all of Winthrop; grandparents Jim Stoneton, Darlene Bassett, Sally Viodek; Uncle James and Aunt Ginger Stoneton and cousins Abby & Juliet; Uncle Jonathan and Aunt Angela Valvano and cousins Hannah, Maggie, Grace, and Alletta; Uncle Michael and Aunt Sarah Hebert and cousin Wade; Uncle Jon and Aunt Sanda Barry and cousins Anna and Sara.
