Alivia Plutowski

alivia plutowski

Alivia Lea Plutowski, “Liv” passed peacefully in the arms of her loving parents on October 28th at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, MN at the age of 13 months.

Alivia Plutowski was born on September 21, 2014 to Jared and Tiffany Plutowski. Alivia spent her entire life at Children’s battling congenital heart disease and Digeorge Syndrome. She was a fighter and was a true miracle from the day she was born. Alivia enjoyed listening to music, watching her mobile, snuggling with her parents and loved holding fingers. She gave the best stink eye while keeping an eye on her nurses. Liv went outside three times and thoroughly enjoyed fresh air. She was known for loving elephants and was always dressed in leg warmers with headbands. Alivia was survived by her parents Tiffany and Jared Plutowski, grandparents, Dale & Judy Plutowski and Brian & Johnet Christianson, aunts and uncles, Angie & Dennis Carpenter, Becky & Adam Koosman, Michael Plutowski, Brittney & Justin Kingsley, Callie Christianson, Michaela & Justin Haugen, cousins Halle, Drew, Kayla, Kara, and Kenzie, great-grandparents Evelyn Plutowski, Leona Ebertowski, Tilfred & Maxine Christianson, and Elma Doerr and her nurses. Alivia was preceded in death by her great-grandparents Edwin Plutowski, Ted Ebertowski, and Alan Doerr. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Upper Midwst.

  18. I am very sorry for the loss of your precious daughter Alivia. Life is a precious gift, yet can be so short. God has promised to one day soon eliminate death forever, along with all sickness, pain and sorrow. (Rev.21:4) He has also promised to reunite us with our loved ones on a restored paradise earth. The Bible says he longs to do this. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11,29; Job 14:14,15) I hope these scriptures will be of comfort to each of you and bring you peace.

  19. We have been thinking of you and praying for you and your family. Please know many people care about you deeply. We are making a contribution to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Upper Midwest in honor of Liv.
