Annah Chapman, 20, passed away on August 6, 2022, in Fargo, ND.

Annah Surae Chapman was born on July 10, 2002 in Fargo, ND, to James Chapman and Bethany (Nelson) Chapman.

Annah graduated from DGF High School in 2020. She started working for Eventide as a Culinary Assistant for a year & a half while still in High School and then she was a Nanny for a private family for almost a year. She moved on to being a Nursing Assistant for Sanford Health in Feb 2022, where she worked until she moved to Colorado last month to start her career as an Aircraft Paint Technician at Pilatus Aircraft where she got to work with her dad.

Anna’s infectious smile would make the darkest room light up with a brilliance that words cannot describe. Her beautiful eyes would tell anyone that she was a kind and caring soul, and was always thinking of the needs of others before her own. Annah loved to travel. From Alaska to Mexico and everywhere in between, she was proud of how many places she had visited. Her love of animals was evident in the way she cared for them. Annah was just discovering that adventure was her cup of tea. On her 20th birthday she took to the skies and jumped from an airplane. After climbing a 14.000-foot mountain peak in a jeep she purchased a jeep of her own. Annah’s love and generosity for her family and friends will forever leave a hole in our hearts.

Annah is survived by her father, James Chapman of Dilworth, MN; her mother, Bethany Chapman of Fargo, ND; grandmothers, Sharon Chapman of Dilworth, MN, Diane Nelson of Fargo, ND & Dawn Lexvold of Fargo, ND; sisters, Autumn and Libby Blake of Dilworth, MN; brother, Shane Blake, of Dilworth, MN; sisters by choice, Meadow Wilkie and Andra Brodersen; her Aunts, Amy (Jesse) Lindemann of Fargo, ND & Chelsey (Chris) Nelson of Grand Forks, ND; her Uncle “Matty” (Karen) Nelson of Portland, OR; and numerous cousins and other relatives.

Annah is preceded in death by her Grandfathers, Steven Chapman & Len Nelson.
