Vivian enjoyed music, singing, needle work, reading and took pride in her children and grandchildren.

We will all miss her.

Our family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the Cumberland Health Centre for their care of our mother. They treated her with respect and love and we will be forever grateful.

Vivian has requested a private family gathering. In lieu of flowers our family gratefully requests donations to the Cumberland Health Centre, 2696 Windermere Ave, Cumberland, B.C V0R 1S0.
