Vivian D’Amato, on a wanning blue moon, peacefully passed away after living boldly for 93 years. She moved from Madison Maine to Boston at a time when that was unthinkable for a woman from mill town in the middle of the state. She skied, golfed, married a bohemian Italian, fought against racism, war and all manner of social inequity. And, with both her words and actions, inspired her children and so many others to find their path. Anyone who has known Vivian, will tell you that there was no one like her and - now that she has passed - will be impossible to forget.
She is survived by her children, Paul, Carl and Andrea (who watched over her tirelessly) and her 5 grandchildren Corinna, Kyle, Luka, Max and Marco as well as her late step son Robert, her daughter-in-law Teresa and her children Sara and Emily; her son-in-law, Michael; and her daughter-in-law, Anne; as well as her adopted family across the street, Marc, Pamela, Jed and Annie Seigle. The family would like to thank the caregivers at Newbridge who took such wonderful care of her through the pandemic until the very end when, having done so much for so many for so long, there was nothing left for her to do.
Please join us in celebrating Vivian’s life on Sunday September 17th at 2PM - 5PM at the Theodore Parker Church in West Roxbury.
In lieu of flowers, Vivian would be so appreciative of donations to the West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place. PO Box 320076, West Roxbury MA 02132 or go to: Donate – West Roxbury Friends of Rosie's Place (westroxburyfriendsofrosiesplace.org)
