BARBARA ANN LIVESAY, 52, of Houston, tragically suffered a massive stroke and died November 26, 2004, in Austin while visiting at the Lake Travis home of her Mother, Maria Livesay, brother, John Livesay, sisters, Linda Livesay and Wilma Ezell, and nephew, Michael Ezell. We were blessed with one last Thanksgiving dinner with her before she was unexpectedly taken from us the next day. Barbara was a loving Mother to Heather Brown, of Iowa; Heidi Blunt, of Spring; and Kristopher Kollar, of Houston. She is also survived by her brother, Ralph Livesay, of Kealakekua, Big Island, Hawaii, sister, Nina Buyuksoy, of Queens, New York, and nephew, Johnny Livesay, of Austin. She was preceded in death by our father, Tolland Livesay, and our sister, Nancy Perez. Our heartfelt thanks to Seton Medical Center and to the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance for the kindness and respect with which they treated Barbara and our family during our grief. We hope that Barbara's sweet and gentle soul will live on in the lives of her organ recipients. A private memorial service is pending. Condolences may be sent to the Livesay Family, 1207 Sharps Rd., Austin, Texas 78734.
