Vivian R Fumarola, died peacefully this past Sunday, August 5 2018 after a lengthy illness surrounded by her Loving Husband of 54 years, Paul Fumarola and her two Daughters, Kristine Palandro and Tracy Ratkiewicz. Vivian was born in Beverly MA and resided in Beverly and in Danvers until 15 years ago when Vivian and Paul retired and moved to their own beautiful spot in Paradise, St Petersburg Florida. Vivian became a Cosmetologist upon graduating from High School and owned her own business in her home for many years. She later went back to school and received her LPN in Nursing and became the best Nurse Ever working in a Pediatricians office and finally working at Tewksbury State Hospital in Massachusetts before retiring.

As a Biological mother to three daughters she was the "adoptive" Mom of many. Master of witticisms, her laughter was contagious. Nurturing and loving she truly had a GIFT for making friends feel like family and were always welcome in her home. She was an exceptionally good artist, woodworker and crafter. She was the "GO-TO" for Bow Making at an annual Wreath Making Party held in her Hometown in Danvers. Vivian and Paul would enjoy sunny days by the pool and evenings with good friends dancing, singing to Elvis and always having fun!!

She leaves behind her husband Paul Fumarola, her Daughter Kristine Palandro and her husband Gene Palandro . Daughter Tracy Ratkiewicz and husband Rob Ratkiewicz. Diane Newton and a total of 8 Grandchildren, Nicole, Ryan, Joshua, Roman, Payton, Zachary, Emily and Elizabeth. Vivian's beloved sisters Janet St. Pierre and Rita Waters. Many Nieces and Nephews and her Fur Kids, Cats Tommy and Suzi Q.
