  1. Vivian was a wonderful resident and asset to the spring Hill development. She seem to really enjoy working on the lifestyle committee and helped out in any way she could. She will be missed.

  2. Michelle Tomasello

    My Aunt Vivian was a loving, fun and family oriented person. When our families got together we always had fun and laughter and needless to say wonderful meals together. I was so saddened to hear of her passing but to know that she is with all her loving family members who have gone before can give us peace until we all meet again in heaven.

  3. Aunt Vivian was always a spunky, bubbly person. She was always excited to hear about our lives. She faced adversity with courage and perseverance and her example of faith has always inspired me. She was one of the strongest women I know. We will miss her. But we’ll meet again… one day✝️
