Dahlia Rose Chapin

March 12, 2013 — August 18, 2023

Dahlia Rose Chapin, age 10 of Oshkosh, passed away peacefully in her mother’s arms Friday, August 18, 2023 at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. She was born in Neenah on March 12, 2013 to Jamie and Erin (Schaefer) Chapin, the oldest of three children.


Dahlia and her family are members of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church. She had a fierce love for Jesus and loved attending church and Sunday school. Dahlia attended Franklin Elementary School and loved being a “Franklin Falcon”. She proudly completed 4th grade this past school year. She enjoyed all of her teachers and classmates at Franklin.


Dahlia was a light in the world. She loved participating in plays, especially Frozen Jr., dancing, yoga, riding her bike, eating at Olive Garden, camping, and swimming. She loved visiting Florida with her family, taking trips to Disney World, and visiting Give Kids The World Village, or “Candy Land”, as she called it. Dahlia was a jokester who loved to tell jokes and make others laugh. She enjoyed crafting, making special notes and pictures for mom and dad and making friendship bracelets. She loved spending time with mom painting, cooking, baking, shopping trips to Target and visiting Starbucks for a Dragon Drink or Caramel Frappuccino. She loved playing with her siblings and cousins, especially Savannah.


Dahlia will be forever cherished by her parents, Jamie and Erin Chapin; siblings, Paul and Ariel Chapin; grandparents, Thomas Schaefer, Randy (Bonnie) Chapin and Vicki (Bill) Warren; great-grandparents, Ron Curtis and Dorothy Gunderson; aunts and uncles, Cameron and Gabriel Chapin, MaeAnna (Sam) Homp, Noble Chapin and Ashley (Shaun) Donohue; godparents, and aunt and uncle, Erika (Bryan) Zilisch; cousins, Savannah, Shaylene and Michael Donohue and Miles Homp.


She is greeted in Heaven by her grandma, Dianne Schaefer; great-grandparents, Wallace “Wally” and Delilah McDonald and Walter and Eunice Schaefer; uncle, Thor Chapin.


A funeral service for Dahlia will be held at 2:00 PM on Friday, August 25, 2023 at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church, 913 Nebraska St. with Rev. Colin Rieke officiating. Visitation will be held at the church from 12:00 PM until the time of the service.
