Olivia Grace.

Olivia Grace Chatterton

(August 27, 2006 - May 23, 2009)



Macomb-Olivia Grace Chatterton, age 2, went into the loving arms of Jesus on Saturday, May 23, 2009 from OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. Olivia was born August 27, 2006 in Macomb, IL, the daughter of Zac and Julie (Trent) Chatterton.
Along with her parents, Olivia is survived by her big brother, Jackson, her big sister, Brooklyn, Grandparents, Tom and Connie Trent of Dunlap, Rod and Suzanne Chatterton of Avon, Great Grandmothers Joan Pardieck of Dunlap and Betty Doran of Hickory Hills, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is also survived by her PICU family at OSF St. Francis Hospital in Peoria.
Olivia was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Macomb and was baptized in Christ on Oct. 8, 2006. She had many accomplishments in her all too short life. She was featured on the cover of the Macomb IParent magazine, the cover girl on the 2009 Children’s Hospital of Illinois calendar, and is a 2009 Children’s Hospital of Illinois Miracle Kid. She also touched and inspired the lives of thousands of people.
A special thank you goes to the Children’s Hospital of Illinois at OSF St. Francis in Peoria for loving Olivia.
A visitation for Olivia will be held on Wednesday, May 27 at Dodsworth-Piper-Wallen Funeral Home in Macomb from 5-8 PM. A celebration of her life will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Macomb on Thursday, May 28 at 11 AM. Pastor Michael Burdick will officiate. A private family graveside service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at OSF St. Francis Medical Center 530 NE Glen Oak Ave. Peoria, IL. 61637.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We cannont express how saddened we our by your loss. Olivia was a special little girl who touched so many lives. She did exactly what God sent her to do, to raise awareness of children born with Downs and a fighting spirit which will live within you for the rest of your lives. What an example she was for your family and others. God Bless.

We are praying for the grace of God to make itself clearly seen in your lives. We too have lost a daughter with DS and have the same hole in our hearts. ONLY the grace and Love of God can give the kind of comfort you need right now. We feel that we knew Olivia too and are praying unceasingly for you all.
