Chelsea R. Milbourne Obituary

Chelsea Redeker Milbourne, 39, of San Luis Obispo, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday, October 19th. Chelsea is predeceased by her brother Nick and survived by her husband Jeff, daughter, Eleanor, and her parents Charles and Elizabeth Redeker. Chelsea was born in Fairfield, California in 1981, and spent her childhood globe-trotting before settling in North Carolina. A graduate of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chelsea was a life-long learner, scholar, and lover of books. Most recently, she was an Assistant Professor in the English Department at California Polytechnic State University, where she studied an emerging field of scholarship called Digital Humanities. Chelsea loved empowering her students to use technological tools to communicate and would often describe her classes as “teaching students how to ‘make stuff.’” Chelsea made it a goal to live each day to the fullest and, most days, she succeeded. She would want us to use the shock of her death as motivation to improve our own lives and our communities.
