FALCONER, Vivian Alice (nee Stevenson)
Vivian passed away peacefully at her home, January 2, 2012, at the age of 92 after a courageous battle with congestive heart failure. She leaves behind her dear sister Georgie Strachan, her closest companion over the last several years. She is survived by her loving sons David (Debra), Christopher (Colleen) and Ian, her cherished grandchildren Erin (Reg), Lee (Xiao-li), Dylan (Angie), Amanda, Jordan, Stuart, James (Ildiko) and Michael and her great grandchildren Emma, Alexander and Imre. Vivian will also be sadly missed by several nieces and nephews. Vivian was the beloved wife of the late William (Bill) Angus Falconer. She was predeceased by her parents Benjamin and Emilia Stevenson (nee Johnston), her brothers John and Benjamin, and her sisters, Myrtle, Marjorie, Mildred and Heather. Vivian loved Ocean Park from the time she was a girl. In 1985 she and Bill made Ocean Park their home. First and foremost Vivian loved being surrounded by her family. She also enjoyed her walks down to the beach for a swim and sitting on the deck while sipping a cup of coffee or tea. She loved the smell of the ocean and the fresh breeze blowing through her hair. In her mind Ocean Park was heaven on earth. Vivian will be dearly missed and always remembered for her appetite for life, her courage and her integrity. The family wishes to extend a special thanks to Dr.J. Nolte and to her caregivers Perla and Requita for their compassion. A funeral service will be held at St John’s Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at 12 pm. Immediately following the service interment of her ashes will take place at the Victory Gardens to be followed by a reception at her home. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
