She and her husband created great memories for their kids with annual summertime cross country trips. Vivian and Arnold loved to travel and visited all fifty states, every Canadian province and many European countries.

She leaves her children, Charlene D. Merritt and her husband, Ronald, of Maynard, Wayne R. Lefort and his wife, Marilyn, of Waltham and Gary A.
