I have lost a co-worker and a friend. Olivia always brightened the day. We shared the same passion: travel and adventure and exchanged a lot of stories. Olivia was tenacious in pursuing her bucket list. Enviable. The latest adventure for her was her skydive jump. She convinced me and my wife to join her this year to jump locally. Olivia even researched reputable providers. COVID put this on hold.
Olivia - we will make this jump. And you will be there ..

I had the pleasure of working with Olivia for 10+ years. Olivia always had a smile on her face and a positive message to share. She was a true professional, colleague and friend. I got to know Olivia more in the last year and am thankful for that. She taught me a lot about perspective and staying positive. I am sad that we have lost Olivia and will continue to embrace the fond memory that she has left behind. My condolences go out to her family and friends - my thoughts are with you all!

Olivia was truly an angel on earth. She touched more people's lives than she realized, as she was an inspiration to all. She was always upbeat, and warm and open and funny and full of life. Her spirit never waivered, no matter what she faced. She was one of the bravest people I have ever had the honor to know.

I was so fortunate to have worked with someone that was so giving of her time, she will be dearly missed.

Rest in peace

Dear Olivia,
You are on your last journey now into another world, another cosmos. You have seen so many beautiful places on this planet and so many people had the wonderful pleasure to meet you and share time with your warmhearted and soulful person.
I remember so well when we met last time in NYC, it was 2016, for lunch together with my partner Irène. It was so wonderful to see you and we shared many smiles and deep moment together.
I wish we could do this again.
Dear Olivia, I will always keep you in my heart.

Your cousin,
Joke

My memory of Olivia is of this smiling, happy go lucky person who loved to travel, and bake goodies!

I remember the many conversations we had of her travels, and especially her sharing the photos of her once in a lifetime trip to Africa.

Olivia, may you rest in eternal peace, continue to travel the universe, and spoil all the people in heaven rotten with your fabulous baking.
