Cybil Alyssa Nelson, 35, passed away in a motor vehicle accident near Klamath Falls, Oregon, on June 24, 2022. Cybil was born Jan. 23, 1987, in Boulder, Colorado, to Arthur and Helen Nelson. Her friends have all described her as an amazing and remarkable person with a very kind heart. She grew up camping, hiking, fishing and wakeboarding all over Colorado and California in the summers. In the winters, she snowboarded, cross-country skied and sledded. She gained a keen appreciation for the outdoors and a passion to preserve and protect the natural world she had learned to love.
Cybil spent her fifth-grade year in Trieste, Italy, along with her mother, sister and father, Art Nelson, who was awarded a Fulbright fellowship abroad. During that year, she learned to speak conversational Italian and traveled with her family to many countries across Europe. Afterwards, Cybil and her family moved to Livermore, California.
