On Friday, May 23, 2014, Olivia "Livy" Christine Frank, 7, joined her twin sister in Heaven. Olivia passed away peacefully at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh after a long fight with Zellweger Syndrome.
Born on July 31, 2006, in Steubenville, OH, Olivia is the daughter of Steven and Wendy Frank of Weirton, WV.
She is our precious, beautiful baby girl. She was truly, a gift to us and all who knew her. She enjoyed sitting under the shade of the maple tree in the front yard, and hanging out with her hound dog "Uno." She is a member of New Cumberland Church of the Nazarene.
Olivia is preceded in death by her sister, Isabella Frank.
She is survived by her beloved siblings Emme and Andrew Frank; heartsick parents Steven and Wendy Frank of Weirton; endeared grandparents Dave and Joyce Andrews of New Manchester and Bill and Chris Frank, formerly of New Cumberland; dearest great-grandmother Helen Andrews of New Cumberland; and treasured aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and nurses in and around the valley.
