Dec. 22, 2008 – Oct. 30, 2018
Alivia Faith Stahl, 9, passed away with her brothers, Xzavier Patrick Ingle and Mason Thomas Ingle, on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018. This was a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle-pedestrian accident.
On Dec. 22, 2008, Alivia Faith was born in Logansport. She was the second daughter of Brittany and Michael Stahl, joining her big sister, Selena. Three years later, Xzavier and Mason arrived.
Growing up near the Tippecanoe River, northeast of Rochester, Alivia was a fourth-grade student at the Mentone Elementary School. She was a member of Mrs. Dye’s class and she was an A Honor Roll student.
Alivia possessed a caring heart, encouraging her classmates to excel. She was happy, with her brown eyes twinkling and a warm smile, brightening the days of whomever she met. With an intense thirst for knowledge, Alivia loved to read all kinds of books. She also liked to sing karaoke and in the car.
Proudly wearing No. 14, Alivia had a passion for playing softball, always being in the midst of action on the ball diamond, playing second or third base or shortstop. Late last week, her number 14 was retired by the league to honor her memory and enthusiasm for the sport. Alivia attended the Church of the Heartland in Winamac.
Her favorite colors were purple and teal. She enjoyed going out to eat and trying new foods. She also like eating at home with her family. Chili, meatloaf and doughnuts were some of her favorite foods. She loved all babies, kittens, puppies and traveling. Alivia enjoyed the creativity of taking selfies, then sharing images on Snapchat. She had a fondness for emojis, especially poop and doughnut emojis.
Confident and proud of her beauty inside and outside, Alivia was known as her dad’s “Little Rapunzel” for her beautiful auburn brown hair with summer highlights that flowed beyond her shoulders. She looked forward to visits with her dad. Alivia was known to be her mother’s mini me, and she was so proud of it. Alivia and her mommy enjoyed painting and going to get their nails done, baking together, taking selfies with Snapchat and watching their favorite TV shows together. She always wanted to be motherly to her mom and take care of her.
Alivia also loved to help take care of and watch over “the brothers” Xzavier and Mason. Many wonderful memories were made camping and at Turkey Run. Alivia was accomplished in baking, making brownies and cookies. She is remembered for her great ability to give warm hugs.
Cherishing the memory of Alivia are her parents, Brittany Stahl, and her fiance, Shane Ingle, Rochester, and Michael and Mindi Stahl, Winamac; her sister, Selena Stahl; her stepsister, Nikki; and her stepbrother, Matthew. Although Alivia’s life was cut short, she created a dynamic ripple effect, influencing all who knew her. Her memory will continue to live in the hearts of her family, friends and teammates and classmates whom she met along life’s journey.
Alivia’s family will receive friends from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, at the Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 W. 18th St., Rochester. A private service is planned. Electronic expressions of sympathy may be made to her family at www.goodfamilyfh.com.
