Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home

31 Arch Street, Greenwich, CT


Vivienne Cecilia Finn

August 31, 2008March 10, 2020

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our sweet daughter Vivienne. Vivienne Finn passed away on March 10, 2020 at the age of 11 years. Vivienne was born on August 31, 2008, to parents David and Mairead Finn in Greenwich, CT. Vivienne will be forever remembered by her parents, her sisters Gabrielle and Regina, younger brother Connor and her fluffy puppy Aspen. Vivienne will be remembered by her grandparents Dan (Bumpa), Phyllis (Mimi), Richard (Papa), Teresa (Nana), aunts, uncles and cousins: Jake, Josh, Hollie, Edith and Eli in Ireland and in America.

Vivienne was a “lifer” of Sacred Heart of Greenwich where she received her Sacraments of Holy Communion and Confession. She developed into a confident learner and strength of character to exude kindness and love to all. Her great faith, positivity and humor served her well. Last year, she was the recipient of the Philippine Duchesne award for her generosity of spirit. She was a gifted artist, reader and writer. She played defense for her soccer team and performed in the school plays Frozen, “Wizard of Oz” and Annie. Often heard rehearsing her songs and lines in the shower. She was a member of a girl’s scout troop in Greenwich and enjoyed camping out, pursuing badges and spending time with her many friends. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her.

Leo P. Gallagher Funeral home has been entrusted with the funeral arrangements. A private funeral mass will be held at her school Sacred Heart of Greenwich. Followed by a private burial with her immediate family. A gathering of all those who knew Vivienne and want to celebrate her life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, Vivienne’s family asks that guests donate to either her school Sacred Heart of Greenwich or the Musella Foundation for Brain Tumor Research so we get closer to a cure for DIPG patients.

“We’re missing you a little more, each time we hear your name. We’ve cried so many tears, Yet our heart’s broken just the same. We miss our times together, Things in common we could share, but nothing fills the emptiness Now you’re no longer there. We’ve so many precious memories to last our whole life through. Each one of them reminders of how much we’re missing you.”

Sweet Angelic Vivienne will always be remembered and missed. Sending our love and prayers to your strong and courageous family.
Love the Carcache’s

Vivienne was and will remain for all eternity a true child of the Sacred Heart. She walked in the footsteps of St Philippine Duchesne. Her courage and faith made us Religious of the Sacred Heart proud to have her bear our name. May Vivienne now intercede for us all as she rests in peace in the loving arms of her God.

Still remember how elegantly she would be dressed for church, quite the fashionista. Always brought a smile to us. Rest with God dear Viv.

Autumn brought new adventures while Viv and Camilla enjoyed the Girl Scouts as kindergartens as they were getting to know each other. They shared many sweet candies in Halloween as well. They shared a soccer pitch and dreams. They liked endless games in the yard and bonfire with marshmallows cover with melted chocolate. Winter brought an end to Viv’s life but her soft presence will be a forever Spring in Camilla’s life and her entire family. Her smile and deep beautiful eyes will remind us all to live to the fullest feeling blessed for what we have. Viv you will be for ever missed!!
