Vivien was an avid sports fan who loved the Phillies and the Eagles always rooting for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the Villanova Wildcats.
We will always remember her watching her favorite show “Shark Tank”. Vivien was proud to be Irish and displayed quite a witty side at times.
Jim will always remember her staying up to watch the Dodger/Astro’s World Series game that ended at 2 in the morning, she was rooting all the way for his Dodgers. Lots of great memories were made in the last year for Debbie, Jim and Vivien.
Vivien had a strong faith and hope of getting to Heaven.
