Kelsey Lynn Klinkenberg
September 4, 1990 – June 12, 2022
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Kelsey Lynn Klinkenberg of Dallas, TX on Sunday, June 12th, 2022 at the age of 31.
She was the beloved daughter of Michael Klinkenberg and Lynnel Rath. She is also survived by her dear sisters, Kaytee Klinkenberg and Sophia Klinkenberg, her loving grandparents Ron and Laura Rath, along with her many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is also survived by her precious puppy, Franklin, who brought Kelsey a great amount of joy in the last eight months.
Kelsey graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Business Administration. She began her career in Irving, TX where she held positions at HMS and Miraca Life Sciences. For the past two years, she was employed at Spirit Realty Capital, Inc in Dallas, TX, as an Application Developer.
Kelsey will be remembered for her big heart, generous spirit, strong sense of humor and her love for her friends and family. Kelsey was a student of many passions and hobbies, including being a gifted DJ and a formidable fantasy football player. Her dream was to create an application which would allow individuals and pet owners to access medical care by specialty and provide clarity on physician and facility pricing. The Mavericks lost one of their biggest fans and you can bet she will be cheering on the Aggies this fall from behind the pearly gates.
Kelsey was taken from those who loved her way too soon. She was brave and fought like a true warrior the last weeks and months of her life. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Relatives and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, June 18th at Keller’s Old Town Funeral Home, 220 Keller Parkway, Keller, TX 76248. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to National Alliance on Mental Illness, https://donate.nami.org/kelseyklink
