Olive Livingston Wing, aged 95, died peacefully on August 1, 2018 at the home of her daughter, Sarah Wing Stoddard, in Orlando, Florida. Olive, known to her friends as “Livy,” was born May 26, 1923 in Almond, Wisconsin, the daughter of Ralph and Ada Livingston.
Livy graduated nursing school and served as an Army nurse during World War II. She married Dr. Breckenridge (Breck) Wilmer Wing on September 1, 1946. They moved to Florida in 1950, where they raised five children: Peggy, Robert, Barbara, Beth, and Sarah. In retirement, she and Breck shared many adventures while traveling the world.
Livy was a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal church in Orlando, Florida, and later St. John’s Episcopal church in Tallahassee, Florida. She was active in both church communities, and also in the Orange County Medical Auxiliary and the American Field Service (AFS) exchange program.
She will be dearly missed by her surviving children: Peggy Bedford, Barbara Wing, Beth Hooker, and Sarah Stoddard; her Austrian “daughter” Lisa Arleth Koenig; as well as a large and loving family and many friends.
There will be a memorial service at St. Luke’s Episcopal church in Orlando, Florida on Friday, August 17, 2018 at 2 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to the charity of your choice.
