Livia is the daughter of Levee Yang and MaiKong Chang and the younger sister of Leveena Yang of Columbia Heights, MN.

After birth, she was hospitalized for 36 days and was able to go home for 44 days before having to be hospitalized again for 7 days before her passing. During her brief visit here on earth, she enjoyed taking naps with her older sister, found comfort in the warm embraces of her parents, and loved watching the mobile spin and being gently bounced on the exercise ball. She was loved and adored by all those who met her and will be greatly missed.
