Olivia Charles Prickett, the 9-month-old treasured daughter of Kristin Gadd Prickett and Cannon Parrish Prickett, passed away on Nov. 6, 2010.

Olivia was born on Jan. 21, 2010, in Birmingham, with a contagious smile, content spirit and sweet belly laugh that brought joy to everyone she met. She loved to show off her latest accomplishment waving “Hi ya” and “Bye-bye” to everyone.

She will always be loved and remembered by her beloved big brother Parrish, age 3; her grandparents, Cindy and Jack Prickett of Eustis, Fla., Tambry Short Gadd of Sharpsburg, Ga., and Phyllis and Chris Gadd of Tallahassee, Fla.; her great-grandparents, Gloria and Ed Short of Andalusia and Betty Jean and Billy Gadd of Ocala, Fla.; and her aunts and uncles, Caroline Gadd, Hunter Gadd, Jacky and Patrick Maroney, and Christy and Todd McCain.

There will be a memorial service on Thurs., Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. in Mt. Laurel at Double Oak Community Church, located at 115 Olmsted St., in Birmingham.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in Olivia’s honor to The Amelia Center, 1513 4th Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35223.

Psalms 139: 13-16: “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”
