Obituary

Olivia Joy Lavis was born on October 11, 1993 to Charles and Lynnette Lavis in Eastpointe, Michigan. She attended Faith Christian Academy and went on to attend Warren Mott High School’s Cosmetology Program. She was born and raised in a loving Christian home, where she was fortunate enough to accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and savior at a young age. She grew up in St. Clair Shores where both of her parents, along with their families, originated. Everyone knew everyone and seldom did people leave to raise their children elsewhere.

Olivia was a simplistic sweetheart with an excellent sense of humor. She once said, as a child, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, “When I grow up, I want to work at K-mart!” Olivia being a high achiever, superseded her dream by being promoted to the management team at 5 Below. She loved the water, so you would find her at the beach most summers. Olivia was always looking for a good thrill ride. Whether it be through car rides over hills, skiing, roller coasters, or trampolines fit the bill! While others were sitting on the bench, you would find Olivia riding until Cedar Point closed.

With a unique fashion sense and taste of hair styles, Olivia was her own person. Yet, she always had a unique way of blending in with others to ensure they felt comfortable. Like her favorite artist Avril Lavigne, Olivia possessed a talent for singing and she had the most angelic voice. Having such a good memory, she was able to drop a line from any given song or movie as it pertained to the conversation she was having.

Olivia was passionate in her love for family and friends—connecting with others came naturally to her. She cherished each and every relationship she made with those in her life, and she lived up to the meaning of her first and middle name, that is, she brought peace and joy everywhere she went. Her deepest Joy was when she was surrounded by her family. Her cousin Katie was her rock. Katie knew just how to bring Olivia’s goofy sense of Humor out. You would often here their unique laughing spells wherever they would be. Olivia knew she could trust Katie and she could be herself around her. She also shared this same passion with a young man, Ryan Alcini, with whom she shared several years of her life.

On July 18, 2020, Olivia Joy Lavis departed from this earth at her home and entered into the presence of the Lord. She is survived by her parents, Charles and Lynnette Lavis, her sisters, Ellissa Colak (Marko), Emily Lavis (Brian Cameron), Stephanie Lavis, and Allison Lavis. She is also survived by her best friend, sister, cousin and other half, Kaitlyn “Katie” Cucinella. Olivia is also survived by her grandmothers Rita Lavis and Barbara Luckett. Olivia had an extra special uncle, Anthony “Tony” Cucinella and a host of others including aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and many good friends. She was preceded in death by her Grandfathers Brian Lavis and William Luckett. Her special Uncle, whom she loved so much, Derek Lavis.

The family of Olivia Joy Lavis would like to thank everyone who generously gave to her memorial and burial fund. They intend to use any remaining funds to bless those who had once blessed their sweet Livy, Livers!

I’m so sorry to hear of your daughters passing Lynette. Looks like she was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Will lift prayers for your family.❤️

My most vivid memory of Olivia was when she was very young, we were in the lavis’ pool, and I taught her how to swim. I remember how proud I was of myself (because I was young too) but so SO proud of her! I babysat a handful of times and Olivia was always so helpful and well behaved. I also attended a sleepover birthday party once for Ellissa where we had a fashion show and played games. I remember how funny and adorable Olivia was!
Growing up, we loved the lavis family and their genuine love for Outdoor fun, Spreading God’s word, and being there for friends and family. I feel so sad that this has happened to this family. I’m glad they can lean on God and each other.
