Olivia Ruth Brantley Howard (1947-2012)

Olivia Ruth Howard peacefully passed on to a glorious beginning on Saturday February 25, 2012 in Canton, GA with loving family by her side. Born in Lubbock, TX on March 13, 1947 and spending 31 years in Minnesota, Olivia joins her mother, Helen Gertrude Kirby, and father, Richard Lee Brantley in Heaven. 

The Yellow Rose of Texas won the battle with amazing grace and humility, divine blessings that were witnessed and will be passed on by those you touched so deeply. A true angel, it is time to use your wings. Thank you for inspiring us, for uniting a family, we are forever humbled and grateful to have been graced by you. Your laugh is infectious, you lift us up, your spirit, unbreakable and always present, you are our air and you give us flight. You live on in our hearts, we feel you every day, and we will see you soon. 

When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet (Proverbs 3:24). 

Olivia is survived by Robert Howard, brother Louis Brantley, sons Brantley and Kirby Howard, and 4 beautiful grandchildren (Aubreigh, Andersen Capper, Isabella, and Caleb). We love you Mom, thank you, you give us life.
