Olivia Marie Russell came into this world on September 17, 2005 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to the proud parents Kurt Garth Russell and Christina Marie Fullmer Russell. Her life began with a fight, being born with medical problems she took her first airplane ride at less then 48 hours old to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. She gave us all the scare of our life’s. For six long days she fought the battle long and hard but at the end she won, our little fighter was now our little Princess. Olivia was a special little girl to all of us. She was a daughter first, granddaughter next, great-granddaughter and more.
It was a short time we had our Princess but she left us with memory after memory, smiles and grins none that will ever be replaced. She has her Princess Wings now to hold and comfort her and let her play with all the angels that were waiting for her in heaven. Olivia is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
“We will think of you Princess with every second of every day, you will be in our hearts until the end of time and then we will be together again” You will always be Mom and Dads Chunky Monkey and Grandma Sherry’s Pretty Girl. We love you Sis.
She is survived by her Parents Kurt and Christina Russell of Shelley; Sherry Fullmer, Grandmother of Idaho Falls; Garth and Norma Russell, Grandparents of Shelley; Gary and Judy Fitzgerald, Grandparents of American Falls; Mark and Ramona Fullmer Great Grandparents of Pocatello; Mary Ann Fitzregald, Great Grandmother of Pocatello; Jerry Fladeland, Step grandfather of Shelley. Several Great Aunts and uncles and cousins. She was preceded in death by her Grandmother Ramona Russell.
A special thanks to Jennifer Hawks, Olivias babysitter and friend, thank you for taking special care of our baby girl.
