There will be one more empty chair at our Christmas table this year.

Vivian Sheret (ne Platt) born in Calgary, Alberta on February 19, 1929 and passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 28, 2020.

Vivian enjoyed a life filled with a loving family. She loved travelling, square dancing, clogging, camping and cooking – but most of all loved to spend time with family and friends.

Vivian leaves behind a loving son, Ken, daughter-in-law, Caroline, granddaughter Maureen English (Ryan), great grandchildren Sam and Olivia, grandson Rory Macdonald (Lisa), great grandchildren Gage, Krystal, Brandon, Tori and many nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Norman, and all of her brothers and sisters.

Vivian had a beautiful smile for everyone that she met. Mom, you will be missed, forever loved and never forgotten. You have earned your angel wings! Rest in peace, Mom!

Arrangements by Foster’s Garden Chapel 4th Street NW, Calgary, AB. A private family interment of the urn will take place at Queen’s Park Mausoleum.

Both Myra and I feel sorry for the loss of your mother. I’m glad you reached out to us and told us of your mother’s passing. We look forward to celebrating Vivian’s life when the time is right.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was so touched in Vivian's obituary where you wrote that she was predeceased by all her brothers and sisters. You see, Vivian was my last living Great Aunt. My grandmother was her sister, Ivy Gladys Findlay. It’s strange to come to the point of your life when all those family members pass away and we find ourselves alone. I don’t remember Vivian very well but I’m sure she must have been at some family events at my Nanny and Grampa's house at some time. I am thinking of you as you share special memories together about Vivian, your mom, your grandmother, your great grandmother, your Aunt. Those shared memories will keep her alive in your hearts forever. ❤️
Please note that I will include my email in case you ever want to contact me as I have done a fair amount of genealogy and have quite a bit on the Platt family. I would also like to hear any stories or memories you have or pictures you would like to share with me to add to our family history. With love, Deb.
