On August 31, 2005, in the city of Buffalo, Olivia Marie Hendrickson was brought into the world by her parents, James and Tamara (Leff) Hendrickson. She attended Maple Lake schools all the way through to the end of her primary and middle schooling before moving with her family to Utah. When she was in the fourth grade, her family relocated back to Maple Lake and Buffalo from California. The previous year, Liv reached the age of 16, which places her as a junior at Monticello High School. She had a fervent interest in a variety of activities, including walking, drawing, writing, and going to the beach.
When she was in the great outdoors or in the company of animals, Olivia felt the most at ease. Liv had strong feelings towards the protection of the natural world, and she investigated various approaches to environmental legislation. She was the kind of person who wouldn’t give up until she had accomplished what she set out to do. Liv has been struggling with a serious case of depression for a number of years now.
In the end, Livvy’s illness and depression became too much for her body to bear, and she passed away. The warmheartedness and generosity of spirit that Liv possessed will be fondly remembered by many. In more subdued settings, her sharp, funny commentary will be sorely missed. Her parents, Jimmy and Tammy Hendrickson, her sisters, Kaya and Kyra Hendrickson, her grandparents, Jack and Mary Hendrickson and Gary and Mary Lynn Leff, as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and pets, are among those who are left behind after her passing.
