Obituary: Almond, Olivia Johanna ‘Liv’

From the arms of her loving parents into the presence of her Lord, we mourn the passing of Olivia ‘Liv’ Johanna Almond on Thursday, February 15, 2024, in Collingwood at the age of 21.

A remarkable young lady, Olivia moved through life with a most joyful and brave attitude. She shared her life and her home with a number of her caregivers and all of those who supported her in her journey at school. Liv’s family has deep gratitude and admiration for them all and for the remarkable tenderness, fun and love that Liv was surrounded with.

Born in Collingwood on March 27, 2002, Olivia is survived by her adoring parents Vernon and Shirley (nee Brak) Almond, and by her siblings: John (Rhonda), Jeff (Stacey), Lisa Haines (Bill), and Jamie (Deanna) and their families.

Liv will be sorely missed by her many aunts, uncles, cousins and by many dear friends, particularly her ‘BFF’ Brogan Lackey. Olivia was recently predeceased by her namesake Oma, Johanna Brak, with whom she shared a special bond.

A funeral service will be conducted at Christ Church Anglican in Meaford on Friday, February 23, 2024 at 11 o’clock, with interment following at Lakeview Cemetery. Family and friends are welcome to gather at the Meaford and St. Vincent Community Centre for a reception following the interment.

Olivia freely shared her joy for life, and her loved ones ask that you all take the time to spread goodness and kindness wherever you can.

As your expression of sympathy, and in lieu of flowers, donations to the South East Grey Support Services to provide and assist families with much needed ‘Respite Care’, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON, N4L 1B9, to whom arrangements have been entrusted.
