One of Courtney’s biggest passions was skin care and nails. During her spare time she would sit in front of her long mirror applying all of her different make up products. She also enjoyed art and crafting. She was super auntie. She loved playing, laughing, snuggling, watching movies and face timing her two nephews Karter and Liam. Courtney and her boyfriend Gage shared a love for each other; fishing and spending time with their fur baby Simon. Courtney, Grandpa Bill, Uncle Charlie and her father enjoyed spending time together at the cabin up north hunting and making deer sausage.
