Callie Michele Quinnell

June 15, 2006 — February 24, 2024


   NECEDAH - Callie Michele Quinnell, age 17, of Necedah, WI, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on February 24, 2024.

   Callie was born on June 15th, 2006 to Kammy and Chris Quinnell and big brother Cody.

   Callie loved spending time with her family and friends. She loved vacations, holiday gatherings and playing games. She loved her pets Bentley Cooper and Midnight (Kitty). She loved to sing and had a beautiful singing voice which she shared with those at Faith Baptist Church and the Necedah School Choir. Callie loved her first job at Milk+Sugar ice cream shop. She’s remembered for her love of mashed potatoes and all things Ice cream.

   She loved to style hair and perfect makeup. She was a huge fan of country music artist Kane Brown and even saw him in concert 2 years ago. Callie loved to swim whenever she could and especially loved snorkeling in the Pacific Ocean. One of her favorite trips was a trip she took to Panama and Costa Rica with her mom and school friends this last summer.

Callie was known for her eye rolling, whatever saying, sassy sassafras attitude to all who knew and loved her.

   She was a Necedah High School senior ready to graduate this May. Callie planned to study counseling so she could help others who struggled with mental health illnesses. She loved with her whole heart and gave all she had to help someone in need.

   Callie leaves a big hole in our lives with her passing. My sweet Callie Q, you are gone too soon.
