1966 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
AMELIA SEVILLA Amelia Lovell Sevilla, 48, passed away Aug. 10, 2014, in Los Angeles. She was born Jan. 13, 1966, in Colorado Springs, the daughter of Ricardo P. and Velma M. Yerro Sevilla. She graduated from UCLA in 1989 and worked at the University since, most recently as the director of counseling for the honors program, where she was a beloved counselor. Lovell, or "Lovey" to her friends, was a member of the Catholic church and enjoyed life to the fullest. One of her favorite activities was traveling with her dear husband, Hooman. Her hobbies included crafting, creating beautiful cards for family and friends and training for marathons. She was an avid fan of Winnie the Pooh, collecting memorabilia at every opportunity throughout her life. One of her favorite quotes from Winnie the Pooh was, "If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever." There are not enough words to express what a wonderful wife, daughter, sister, Tita "Auntie," friend, co-worker, counselor, person she was. Lovell had a special gift for being keenly aware of the needs of those around her and made special time for everyone. People were a priority for her. She was preceded in death by her father, Ricardo. She is survived by her loving husband, of 12 years, Hooman Rahimizadeh; her mother, Velma of Henderson; brothers, Richard Sevilla (Yanhong and nieces, Crystal and Hannah) and Darryll Sevilla (Shivonne, nephew, Ricoh, and niece, Emberly) of Las Vegas and Henderson, respectively; nephew, Ryan Rahimizadeh; niece, Lauren Rahimizadeh; and countless friends and family the world over.
