Olivia Marie Hendrickson was born August 31, 2005, in Buffalo to James and Tamara (Leff) Hendrickson. She lived in Maple Lake through the 2nd grade when the family moved to Utah. They moved back to Maple Lake and Buffalo when she was in the 4th grade. Liv was currently a junior at Monticello High School. She loved to swim, draw, write, go for walks, and research places to travel. Olivia was connected with animals and nature and enjoyed the time spent with both. The care of our planet was important to Liv, she even thought of political solutions to care for our environment. She was a driven individual that was tenacious in achieving her goal.
Depression overcame Liv in the past couple years. The illness became too great for Livvy to handle and eventually depression took her life.
Liv will be remembered for her beautiful heart and great spirit. Her quick wit and sharp tongue will be missed especially in the quiet times.
Olivia is survived by her parents, Jimmy Hendrickson and Tammy Hendrickson; sisters, Kaya and Kyra Hendrickson; grandparents, Jack and Mary Hendrickson and Gary and Mary Lynn Leff; aunts and uncles, Anna Hendrickson, Natalie and Chris McClory, and Chuck Leff; cousins, Brittany Cargill, Shay and Allie McClory; some close friends; and her pets, Tallulah, Delilah, Oslo, Skye, and Reaper.
