Felicia Ann Westervelt, 10 year-old daughter of Karl M. and Lori Ann Houseknecht Westervelt of 8385 Lakeview St., Interlaken passed away on Monday, July 28, 2003 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Felicia enjoyed seeing her friends in class and would have been a 5th grader at South Seneca Central School. She exercised her boundless energy by playing soccer, baseball, bicycling, dancing and learning to roller-blade with her mom. She listened to music and worked hard to learn and master the clarinet. Felicia also entertained her cousin TJ for hours as the two played dress-up.

Felicia was always enthusiastic about socializing and looked forward to shopping excursions, talking on the phone and attending Girl Power Club meetings. While at home Felicia could often be found playing in the creek with her canine companions Mocha and Molly.

Felicia's most precious times were those spent with family, especially those enjoyed with her best friend, Dad. She was proud to be Daddy's little girl and will always be his special Angel .

In return for the joy received Felicia's smile and caring soul enlightened all who knew her. Felicia's quest was to make those around her happy and she never fell short. We will forever hold a special place in our hearts for this adorable cherub.
