The family of Margaret “Vivian” Kerr (nee Donahue) regret to announce that she slipped away peacefully on Monday, January 28, 2019 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born on October 23, 1924, Vivian was the beloved wife of George Thomas Kerr and cherished daughter of Frank Leo and Martha Ann (Leetch) Donahue. She was pre-deceased by George, her parents, her older brother, Francis and younger sister, Helen (Carlson).
Vivian was an entrepreneurial visionary, an avid collector, a dedicated caregiver and pillar of support for her family. She was also a founding member of St. Pius X Church, a member of St. Jude’s Society and a graduate of St. Vincent’s High School and Saint John Vocational School.
Vivian will be forever missed by her son, Brian (Sheila) and by the grandchildren who entered her life: Tanya (Mike) McNeill, Toby (Todd) Clark, Erika (Jeff) Bennett, Sheryl (Edmund) O’Neill, Victor Morin, Stephen (Kathryn) Delaney and Frank (Rachelle) Heon.
To her great-grandchildren Darcie McNeill, Mitchell O’Neill, Shannon Morin, Sarah O’Neill, Matthew Morin, Sydney Clark, Katelyn Clark, Olivia Delaney, Claire Heon, Abigail Delaney, several nieces and nephews, grand-nieces/nephews, she will forever be remembered as “Granny Viv”; her generosity and resilient spirit inspiring this next generation onward in life.
The family would like to acknowledge the care and support provided to Vivian the last 10 years by Jean Cronin and Carol Wade of Clearview Seniors Home; her physicians, Dr. Ann Jansen and Dr. Ruth Ingersoll for their excellent care; and want to express their appreciation to the SJRH – Palliative Care unit staff for easing Vivian’s final passage.
Resting at Fundy Funeral Home, the family would like to invite you to join us to celebrate her life with Visitation on Friday, February 1 from 4 to 8 pm and a funeral service held at Fundy Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 9:30 am, followed by a reception. Interment (Family Only Please) will occur immediately after the service at the family plot in St. Joseph’s Cemetery. We ask in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a charity of your choice.
She is incredibly loved and missed by all who knew her and shall never be forgotten.
