June 22, 1992 - September 19, 2020
Her name is Julia, 28 years old and the youngest child of Robert and Dana Olivarez. On Saturday, September 19th, Julia left our world too soon and was greeted by her sister, Jenna, and brother, Jimmy, in theirs. For her parents, for all who knew her, it is a loss that is Beyond Words. But words we nonetheless summon to honor her remarkable life. Julia was a strong, smart, beautiful, and vivacious young woman who accomplished so much good in her short life. A graduate of Moorestown High School, Julia went on to earn an undergraduate degree - with maxima cum laude honors - from LaSalle University; an M.B.A. and C.P.A. license from Philadelphia University; and a rewarding and prestigious career in public accounting, recruited and employed first by Ernst & Young, and most recently by The Siegfried Group. Julia accomplished all of this while bearing up under the tragic loss of her siblings. She loved life and was the light of her parents’ lives: she was always there to comfort them and lift their spirits; to simply hang out or watch a movie or cook together; to instigate fits of laughter, joy, and dancing revelry; and to impart some commentary through her trusted companion and alter ego, Peter the Penguin. Many memorable trips were spent with family and friends to Ocracoke Island on North Carolina’s Outer Banks; winter trips with her dad to Texas, including to Padre Island to swim and soak up vitamin D; and the unforgettable five days spent with her mom in Aruba last February. Julia had family and close friends with whom she shared much love and happy moments together. And she had her beloved dog, Kiwi, whom she cared for and who was with her in her final hours. Julia lit up every room with her striking presence, good humor, and penchant for zany fun. She loved music by Avicii (such as “Trouble”), country music, classic rock, and hip hop. Julia loved watching Family Feud and Shark Tank, but – we can’t imagine why – she hated the news; her favorite movies were the “scary ones” on the Lifetime channel. Out of the blue, you just might hear Julia screech, or hiss, like a wild animal; or say the craziest thing and have everyone in stitches. Julia led a full life and was full of life; she did it all her own way, made it look good, and looked good doing it. Despite setbacks and heartache, Julia always pushed ahead with full force and vigor to build a wonderful life for herself. Maybe her cherished Philadelphia Flyers will work just as hard and bring the Stanley Cup home for her next season. Julia is dearly missed and loved by her mother, father, relatives, friends - and all those lucky enough to have had even one crazy swirling dance with her, and to have stared into her most magnificent, mischievous eyes. We hold her memories close to our hearts.
