Obituary For Olivia Menard
Olivia Mae Menard was granted her angel wings on April 14th 2015, following a lifelong illness. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Livi had touched in some small way throughout her short, yet very memorable life. She passed away in her Mommy and Daddy's arms.
Livi's life would seem too short to many but those who knew her understood the quality of her existence far exceeded the quality of time in which she lived. Her smile brought joy to everyone who saw it and, although she never spoke, her love and happiness could always be heard.
Although Livi's illness left her with many physical and developmental challenges, the strength and courage she possessed gave her an ability to overcome incredible odds. Livi brought happiness to every situation. She loved to rock in her chair, listen to her music box, and most of all, she loved her family. We will miss Livi every day, but will try our best to remember her greatest lesson: enjoy every day to the fullest and focus on what's important. Throughout her four years, we were able to create wonderful memories and it has been a privilege to be her parents.
Livi is survived by her loving parents, Chad and Jen Menard; sister, Lila Menard; paternal grandparents Richard and Carolyn Menard of Mattituck, NY; maternal grandparents Jeffrey and Suzanne Smith of Cutchogue, NY. She is also survived by her paternal great-grandmother Barbara Fairburn of Rockledge, FL; her maternal great-grandfather Lester Hubbard of Mattituck, NY; and many Aunts, Uncles, and cousins who loved her dearly.
There will be a memorial service April 20th 2015 at 2PM at the Pine Forest Memorial Gardens in Wake Forest. A gathering will follow afterwards.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the GFPD in honor of Olivia.
