Olivia Anna Booth, age 18, of Westfield, NJ laid her soul and spirit to their final rest on July 7, 2019 in her home in Fanwood, NJ.
Olivia was born on March 29, 2001 in Baltimore, Maryland, a precious gift to her parents Alexander C. Booth and Susan L. Booth (Duga) as well as the many friends and acquaintances she would touch during her life. Olivia attended wonderful schools including Bryn Mawr in Baltimore, MD; Renbrook in West Hartford, CT; and the Westfield, NJ public schools. Olivia graduated from Westfield High School on June 21, 2019 and it had been anticipated for Olivia to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder in August. Olivia’s true passion was everything equestrian including competition and horse care.
Olivia is survived by her Mother, Susan L. Booth (Duga) of Fanwood, NJ; Father, Alexander C. Booth of Westfield, NJ; Uncles, Thomas D. Booth of Baden, Austria and Christopher E. Booth of Osnabrück, Germany; Aunts, Karen Duga of Naples, FL and Jeannine Booth of Osnabrück, Germany; Cousins, Virginia Grimm of Munich, Germany; Laurence Booth of Baden, Austria and Julian Booth of Osnabrück, Germany.
Olivia will be remembered for her profound love of animals, especially her canine sister, Roxy Lola, and the many horses she worked with in competition and care. Additionally, Olivia was always proud of and surrounded by diverse groups of friends, who kept her smiling and laughing.
