Olivia Devereaux Naples Bostic Obituary
Olivia Devereaux Naples Bostic

Virginia Beach - Olivia Devereaux Naples Bostic, 38, lost her battle with colon cancer on July 30, 2014. Olivia, originally from Lynchburg, Virginia attended Holy Cross Regional Catholic School and then graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1998. After ten years of travel, enjoying the west coast and working in various fields including entertainment travel, she returned to Virginia to attend EVMS to become a Physician Assistant. After earning her Master's Degree, she began her career at the Virginia Institute for Sports Medicine in 2005. Olivia met her husband, David, and his two children, Megan and Dylan in 2006. They married on October 16, 2010.

Olivia also waits in heaven for her parents, Jim and Gwen, her sister Lauren-Taylor, brother-in-law, Bill Jones and their son, Sean who is named after a good friend who died of Sarcoma. Olivia's brother, Jesse and his wife, Kate, live in Lynchburg with Olivia's two nieces, Lauren and Elaina.

Olivia was a driver in life. She charged through her career in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery with loyalty, respect and love for her patients and physicians. She had a firm resolve to be the strongest PA she could be. Her parents nicknamed her "Stands with a Fist". She fought through her cancer treatments with the same tenacity and bright spirit. If Olivia was feeling down, she let few others see it.

Olivia was diagnosed when she was feeling her best and strongest. She and David were avid athletes and nutrition nuts. David and her family would like to thank the Wareing's Gym team for their support and positive reinforcement through her treatments. Olivia's team at the Virginia Institute for Sports Medicine and Sentara Virginia Beach General kept her happily working 18 months after her diagnosis. She couldn't stay away from them or her patients.

The Bostic and Naples families also want to thank Dr Celeste-Ann Bremer, Angie Mayer her Nurse Practitioner and Ebony their nurse, along with the Virginia Oncology crew at Princess Anne who saw Olivia more often than anyone some days. Olivia was constantly helping other patients with their own medical issues during her treatments.

Olivia's sister, Lauren-Taylor and friends, Lisa, Trish, Cathie, Shannan, Julie L, and Julie B will continue to educate, advocate and assist anyone under 50 years old diagnosed with Colon Cancer.

A Memorial Mass will be on Wednesday August 6, 2014 at 11:00 AM at Star of the Sea Catholic Church. A celebration of life will be held at Princess Anne Country Club Tuesday night from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
