Vivian was of the Catholic faith and attended St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church in Cape Coral. Vivian worked at Chatham Supermarket in the main office for 25 years starting as a switchboard operator and working her way to executive administrative assistant to the vice president. She was a very dedicated employee who instilled a strong work ethic in her children. She didn’t stay retired for long and continued to work part time for various companies. When Vivian moved to Cape Coral in 2006, she loved it so much she felt it was truly home and would always say “it’s another day in paradise.” Vivian had many hobbies, including travel, gardening, sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She was known to be a fashionista and accessorized from head to toe. She was technology savvy and especially loved playing computer games. Her favorite game was Bingo Blitz. Vivian had a passion for dining out so much so that she became friends with many of the wait staff in the area. She would always be willing to suggest a great place to eat! Vivian loved her family and loved the Lord and always felt He had a plan for her. She will be missed by many.
