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.

Barbara's sister Wilma and I were best friends and through her I knew Barbara. I recall her being shy but so sweet and kind. She had a great soul and I know how much she is missed. My deepest regrets for your sudden loss of such a beloved sister. My prayers for all of Barbara's loved ones! She was such a gentle spirit.

Some of my fondest memories with my mom are of going on adventures with my mom, like to Galveston for the day with my sister, Heidi, and Grandma Marie for the day. My Grandmother would fry up a chicken to take for lunch and we would take Teddy, our dog, too. Another adventure was when all four of us drove to Arkansas to see my Grandfather Tolland's family when I was 11 and my sister was 10. Another fond memory is her love of pizza! She loved to take me out to Pizza Hut, her favorite pizza place. Also, my mom always enjoyed being outside gardening. She never like crowds and was a quiet person who enjoyed simple things in life. I admired her ability to always give others the spotlight. When I last saw her in April of this year, we (Mom. Kris, Holden, and I) went to a Mexican restuarant and she gave Holden a wooden, handpainted maracca she found in the attic of the apartment building she lived in. It was a nice visit. She was interested in hearing about our lives and didn't say much about herself and she seemed content with her life.

Goodbye, sister, I'm so sorry this happened to you so young. You were the best sister I could've grown up with! We had so much fun and we got into so much mischief and so many adventures together, but you always kept our secrets! I love you and I'll miss you forever. Your little sister, Wilma
