<div itemprop="description">In deep sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Livette Atkinson, on Thursday, September 10, 2015, while travelling from North Vancouver to her home in Calgary. <br /><br />Livette is survived by her loving family; husband, Dave; children, Kody and Kiana; siblings, Carson (Christine), Clark (Anna), and Kelley, as well as extended family including, Gordon, Caroline, Lucas, Vasi, Emma, Jessica, Judy, Louise &amp; Brian, Glenn, Yvonne and many good friends. <br /><br />Livette attended the Winnipeg Ballet School before studying at the University of Oregon. After graduation, she returned to the North Shore where she began her career in human resources at the University of British Columbia. In the early 90s, advances came rapidly as she moved into the telecommunications sector and worked in Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary. Serving in various senior and director level positions, Livette was praised for her business acumen and ability to balance employee and corporate objectives. <br /><br />Out of the office, Livette contributed by supporting others in HR recruitment networks, and by serving on charitable boards associated as arts, culture and education. Her love of sports was ever present and influenced her children&rsquo;s talent for soccer. She enjoyed outdoor adventures, gardening, travelling and reading. But her passion was for her family, and she leaves a tremendous void. <br /><br />A Celebration of Livette&rsquo;s life will be held at Eden Brook Funeral Home, 17 Ave &amp; Lower Springbank Road S.W., on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the Calgary Counselling Centre.</div>
