Olyvia was a talented artist, exceptional entertainer, and outdoors enthusiast. She was an expert fisherwoman, and never failed to reel in the big catch. Extremely intelligent, she spent a lot of time in books and documentaries regarding historical events. She could answer any question regarding American History without hesitation. She was a deep lover of animals and rescued many along the way. Strong minded and independent, she never followed any social norm and was proud to be herself. Her family admired her ability to create her own space and world.

This was a great day! Dad used to take us to the coolest places. I remember this day as one of the most fun with the four of us.

Olyvia was a really sweet and good person. She and Shane bonded sometimes. Shane trusted some people to confide in and help him work through some of his concerns in life, and he really loved his big sister figures. Olyvia was one of them, and they really got along well. We are very saddened to hear of this terrible loss. Our love and prayers go to the Frakers and extended family.
