CHIPPEWA VALLEY (WQOW) - "Some souls are too beautiful for this world." Those are the first words you see when you read about the life of a young teen taken too soon.

Funeral services will take place Monday for 14-year-old Brooklyn 'Brooke' Kelly, the Memorial High School freshman who died as a result of a crash last week. Two 15-year-old girls and the 16-year-old male driver were injured and taken to the hospital.

In Kelly's obituary, she is described as a "creative dreamer with a fierce love for her family and friends." The passage describes her "dazzling smile" and her "contagious personality." Her family says she was a gifted athlete, with a love for animals and made everyone feel like a queen.

Her family went on to write "Brooklyn left a mark on the world, and footprints on our hearts."

Services will take place at Notre Dame Catholic Church in Chippewa Falls. Visitation will take place from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
