Analiese was born on April 26, 1999 to Greg and Heather (McDonald) Chapman in Davenport, IA. She was the youngest of four siblings.

Analiese loved going four wheeling, being outdoors, being a mentor for new families fighting Cystic Fibrosis, country music, and especially, spending time with her nieces. Post-transplant she was able to adopt her dog, Copper. She loved taking him to the dog park, and snuggling with him on the couch. She grew up as part of the firefighter family, and was able to join Riverdale Fire Department in November 2017. She loved to participate in water fights with fellow fire fighters. She was an avid Iowa Hawkeyes, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Chicago Cubs fan.

During her many hospital stays, she always had a smile on her face, and enjoyed keeping in touch with other patients. She always made an impact on the staff, and became close friends with many of them. Analiese never wanted anyone to worry and always said “I’m fine” no matter how sick she was. Many people will tell you she was the strongest person they had ever known. Even in her last days, she was always more concerned about everyone around her than herself.

Those missing her dearly are her parents Greg and Heather (McDonald) Chapman; sister, Cassie (Wade) Whiting; brothers, Andrew Chapman and Josh (Jill) Chapman; nieces: Rylie, Addison, Willow, Ella, Arabella and Freya; grandparents, Anita McDonald and Lucy Chapman; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, John McDonald and Larry Chapman.

I'm so sorry to hear of your daughters passing. My Mom who lives in DeWitt told me about Analiese. I wanted to send our sincere condolences. We are originally from the Maquoketa area, but now live close to Kansas City, MO. Our son Blake (28) has cystic fibrosis.
Analiese sounded like an amazing young lady! Hugs to you all.

I always enjoyed my time with Analiese when she would have to spend time with us in the hospital. I often made her the last person I would see on my morning rounds because I knew we would spend a lot of time just chatting about anything in general. I still have the Fox she gave me on my last week of residency. She was a joy to be around and she will be missed. Prayers to God for you all.

I did not know this beautiful girl but have heard of her through other CFers in Iowa City. My husband and his sister would speak to CF patient to show them and parents that you can live your life. They both lived to be almost 59. It sounds like she packed a lot of living in a short life. The team she had at the hospital become almost family as well as this other CF patients. Run free young girl and breathe with no pain.

I never met Analiese, but as a retired firefighter she was my sister. I will be honored to join the Patriot Guard in conferring honors on our fallen sister.

I met Analiese on my first visit to Iowa University a year ago. We were in rehab exercising room. I noticed she was doing the sit and stand up exercises. I said are you on a lung transplant list cuz that’s what they showed me. She said “yes I am .......I got new lungs already”. I said wow I’m impressed . So how long have you had the surgery? She said “1 month”. I said wow that is awesome because I’m waiting for one and I’ve been a little nervous about it. She said it’s so great not to have machines and oxygen. I told her I was very nervous about the surgery but she changed my mind.
I’m so glad I met you. We talked,texted and it was so fulfilling to hear your journey. Thank you for sharing with me. I hope I’ll see you sometime. You are a beautiful angel.
