Olivia Mary Mackay

1999 - 2017

Olivia Mary Mackay, a student who was about to enter her senior year at Indian Trail Academy High School this fall, passed away unexpectedly on July 24, 2017. She was 17 years old.

Olivia was born on Sept. 3, 1999, at Kenosha Memorial hospital to her parents Kelly Dean Mackay and Colleen Renee Morowski.

As a child, Olivia enjoyed spending time at home with her brothers and her cousins, even though she announced at age 10 that she was planning to move out and travel the world. As an elementary school student, her expressed love of cherry pie earned her Bristol Elementarys "Pie In The Sky" award. In middle school, she worked her way into several school plays and enjoyed attending theater productions in Chicago. She was always a shy person with no particular desire to fit in. She was unafraid to be the person she wanted to be, and those who were close to her knew her to be a very funny person who loved to plan small gatherings and activities for her friends. She loved to dance, and enjoyed playing the ocarina.

As Olivia grew into a young adult, her curiosity, strong work ethic and independent spirit often landed her on the honor roll and led her to develop many interests. She was a particularly inventive and talented visual artist who was comfortable working in a wide variety of mediums. She was very interested in video production and would write detailed scripts for videos that she would post online to YouTube. She loved to read manga and was an enthusiastic fan of anime and K-Pop.

Olivia taught herself to speak and write basic Chinese while sharpening her skills in advanced Chinese language classes at her high school. In 2016, Olivia visited China and was planning a return trip as soon as she was able to afford it. Olivia could also speak Spanish quite well.

Olivia held two jobs at both McDonalds and Taco Bell. Her co-workers held her in high regard, describing her as hard-working and something of a perfectionist. Due to her interest in their respective programs for studies abroad, Olivia was hoping to attend either Carthage College or Loyola University in Chicago after graduation.

Olivia is survived by her parents; her step father, Michael Robert Morowski; and her brothers, Vincent Calob Mackay, Patrick Kelly Mackay, Spencer Quinn Morowski, and Thomas Michael Morowski.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017, at 11 a.m. at Journey Church in Kenosha. Burial will follow at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers memorials to the family would be appreciated to be used for a scholarship program in her memory.
