Dedicated to Olivia Frances White
Olivia was born on March 10th, 1994 in Dallas, Texas to John and Jill White. She was the oldest of four siblings, with two sisters, Josie and Phoebe, and one brother Jack. Olivia is also the granddaughter to Raymond and Joan White of Flagstaff, Arizona. She was diagnosed with a seizure disorder of an unknown cause when she was five weeks old. When she was two years old, it was determined that she suffered from a mitochondrial disease that prevented her cells from metabolizing glucose in a normal way. She was neurologically affected her entire life.
Olivia’s influence on her family, friends and the people she encountered was profound. She was always challenging, yet forever positive. Olivia was able to inspire others to grow in their capacity to love. Olivia had an inner strength and peacefulness about her that was hard to describe with words, yet immediately apparent in her presence. She was and continues to be a blessing and inspiration to us all.
Olivia Frances White passed away on July 11, 2007. She was 13 years old.
Dedicated to Elaine Loven
Elaine’s Forest House is dedicated to the loving memory of Elaine Loven. Elaine’s journey in life was vibrant and adventure-filled. She was, and still is, an inspiration to all of those who were blessed to know her. Elaine was a dedicated partner, animal lover, and the essence of caring!
Elaine was born on October 4, 1966 in Plainview, Texas. In 1967, her family gave up the “plain view” and moved to Flagstaff. During her childhood, Elaine was involved in many activities and clubs. She was the best sister ever and was a catalyst of spunkiness and mischief for her family and all of those around her. Her laugh and smile were contagious.
Prior to college, Elaine spent a year in Stuttgart, Germany learning German. She returned to Flagstaff and began her college education at Northern Arizona University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in German and a minor in Accounting. She received a scholarship to study abroad and spent a semester at Philipps-Universität in Marburg, Germany. She graduated cum laude from NAU in 1992. After graduation, Elaine began her career in construction, ultimately helping her brother, Mike Loven, build his business. Elaine became loved by both clients and employees. She was famous for running a “tight ship”, her accounting accuracy, an endless stream of employee memos, but most importantly for being the bright light that shined every day. After twelve years of dedication to Loven Contracting, she was ready for a new adventure.
Elaine retired in 2006 to fulfill her lifelong dream of living by the ocean and chose to do so in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. While her dream was cut short due to breast cancer, she never lost her sense of humor, her zest for life, and being the voice of reason with her siblings! After a courageous two year battle, Elaine passed away on July 20, 2009 at the age of 42.
Elaine is missed every day, and continues to be the source of many stories and much laughter. This home honors her strong commitment to helping families in the community.
