Chantel Denise Fallavollita
Chantel Denise Fallavollita was born in Toul-Rosières France in August 1966. As the youngest of three children to retired Air Force Master Sergeant William (Bill) and Eleanor Orner she is survived by her husband Gregg, sons Joseph Ayers and Levi Fallavollita, her parents and two older brothers Billy and Kenny Orner.
As a military 'brat', she moved multiple times in her young life, ultimately settling in Harrisburg, PA. Chantel's early work career began in banking, ultimately working her way into a management role.
She met her husband Gregg in New Cumberland, PA and the two were married in Lawton, Oklahoma in 1996, the beginning of a whirlwind tour of the world. Chantel and Gregg have lived in 10 locations in their 24-year marriage including nearly two years in England.
From Oklahoma to enjoying the Carolina shores then to her favorite locale, the base of the Rockies in Colorado Springs where she continued in banking and jewelry sales, while volunteering at her church. A quick stint back to the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area lead to a new home in Southern California, another favorite location for her while she worked part-time in jewelry sales, earning multiple awards for her sales prowess. Two years later, Chantel was back in Colorado, enjoying the community of Castle Rock, working with children at the local recreation center and continuing with volunteerism in her church. The next stop was in the desert of Southern Arizona, where Chantel threw herself into Levi's anti-bullying book writing and enjoying being his personal handler. She found purpose in assisting Levi get his message out to the community and engaged with local schools, news stations and the Arizona Attorney General office.
Onto England, Chantel became an avid traveler, seeing over 23 countries and became a proficient family travel planner. Awaking from this dream locale, Chantel found herself in the Tampa - St. Petersburg Florida area, ensuring Levi remained on track with his path to Eagle Scout, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Joseph. Chantel was extremely proud of her two Eagle Scout sons.
While in Florida, and based on Chantel's numerous hours of volunteer work at Levi's schools, she became a paid volunteer coordinator at the local YMCA until it was time to relocate (again!) to the Dallas, Texas area. After setting up her new home in Ellis County, she worked part-time at H-E-B, diving headfirst into the Texas culture.
Throughout her travels, Chantel was quick to make friends, leaving a trail of love across the world. Chantel loved the friendliness of her new Legacy Estates neighbors and will be missed by these friends, co-workers and especially her family.
