Lacey left this earth peacefully at her home on Wednes­day, Oct. 21, and is now with her beloved father, Jack “Snuffy” Nelson, in heaven.

Lacey was the most caring, loving and compassionate mother to 12-year-old Ellie Nelson Reinhard and she will be missed deeply.

Lacey graduated from Humboldt High School in 1998 and earned her degree from ICCC in Biotechnology.

Her wonderful laugh and smile will always be remembered by her friends and family. She loved nature and the earth, which was reflected in her many mediums of artwork.

Lacey is survived by her mother Kim, brother Zach Nelson, sisters Rachel (Wederquist) Lavender, and Emily Wederquist. Her grandmothers Rusty Nelson and Patricia King, her beloved nieces and nephews, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

All are invited to a celebration of Lacey’s life on Saturday, Nov. 7, 3-6 p.m. at Willow Ridge Golf Court in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
