Larissa Ivory Bul­lock died peace­fully in her sleep on Septem­ber 8, 2017 in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia, due to com­pli­ca­tions from her coura­geous bat­tle with ovar­ian cancer.

Rissa, as she was known by all, was born on Au­gust 25, 1966 in At­lanta, Ge­or­gia to her par­ents, Charles and Geral­dine Bul­lock. Rissa moved to San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia in 1999. She then moved to beau­ti­ful Mill Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia, and soon af­ter mar­ried Dirk Ivory, where to­gether they had two ex­cep­tional chil­dren, Is­abella “Bella” Ivory and Drake Ivory.

Rissa was ac­tive in real es­tate for most of her life, re­cently li­censed as a Sales Agent with Pa­cific Union.

Rissa was known for her zest for life and love of her fam­ily. Her two beau­ti­ful chil­dren were the most im­por­tant as­pect of her life. She was a lov­ing, car­ing and pro­tec­tive mother. Rissa was very in­volved with their school life at Mount Tam School, whether it be sewing the cos­tumes for plays or vol­un­teer­ing her time at the school . She also as­sisted with coach­ing Bella’s soccer team to nu­mer­ous cham­pi­onships.

She loved the out­doors: hik­ing through­out the moun­tains of Marin County, snow ski­ing in Lake Ta­hoe, pad­dle board­ing and do­ing yoga. She was also very fond of vis­it­ing Stin­son Beach. Grow­ing up on Lake Lanier in North Ge­or­gia, she was an avid wa­ter skier and had en­joyed boat­ing since her child­hood.

Rissa has been sur­round- ed by her won­der­ful friends and fam­ily over the last sev­eral months. Her friends have been so im­por­tant to her through­out her life and had re­cently be­come an amaz­ing sup­port group, not only to her but also to her chil­dren.

Rissa is sur­vived by ex-hus­band, Dirk Ivory, their two chil­dren, Is­abella Ivory and Drake Ivory of Mill Val­ley, CA; her mother Geral­dine W. Bul­lock of At­lanta, GA; her brother Brad Bul­lock (Lisa) of Lil­burn, GA, their chil­dren Jaime­son, Alyssa and Me­gan and her brother Mark Bul­lock (Lon) of At­lanta, GA.
