Jessica Marie Omelian, 22, passed away unexpectedly on the early morning of June 30, 2019.
Jessica was born April 30, 1997, at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, to Kathleen (Becker) Williams, Athens, and the late Matthias “Matt” Omelian.
She was a 2015 graduate of Athens High School. She attended NTC for a degree in early childhood daycare. Her first job was at the age of 15 at the Athens IGA. She then moved on to the Edgar Child Care Center, left there in September and started at Decorator Industries in Abbotsford until the time of her death.
Jessica was a sweet and selfless girl who always looked out for others before herself. She enjoyed working with children immensely and one day had hopes of having her own family.
She loved spending time with nature. She enjoyed long walks at local parks with her fiancé. Jessica loved animals, especially cows and dogs and often found comfort in them during hard times. She loved watching movies, reading and watching her favorite shows.
Most of all she loved the ones closest to her. No matter how bad of a day she was having she would try to makes yours better. She enjoyed giving more than ever receiving and the light she left in people’s eyes will shine bright forever.
