Memories Timeline


  1. Vivian Fiore was a beautiful and vibrant lady. She and her husband Tony were my God Parents. I will always cherish the many fond memories I have of my childhood and all of the many adventures that Vivian, her daughter Nina, my mother, and I would take to the DC museums, the zoo, and other local site seeing attractions. Vivian will be missed for her compassion, her laughter, her wit, and her love of life and family. May God speed, and may He lead Vivian to a better and everlasting place. Michaelann

  2. We learned to know Vivian when Nina married Ernie’s brother, Earle, and we became family. We shared many wonderful holidays and treasured her good cheer and willingness to embrace us as a Grandmother. Her love of her grandaughter,Elena, was legendary and they continued to have total devotion to each other every day that they shared. We will miss her at our table and know she will remain in our hearts. Ernie & Marilyn Jenkinson

  3. Vivian will always be Mrs Fiore to me. She was always kind, loving and generous of spirit with me and that is how I will remember her. Peace!

  4. My best memories of growing up always include Mrs. Fiore. Having the good fortune of living across the street from the Fiore’s, I remember her patience, kindness and generosity whenever I would come over to see Nina. Mrs. Fiore was my mother’s most cherished friend and neighbor. Her home was a safe repose and refuge. Mrs. Fiore will forever be held close to my heart for her compassion and kindness to my family.

  5. We shared many family get-togethers and Vivian always made each one better. Her infectious smile and warm laugh always told you that she was delighted to be there surrounded by family and good cheer. She was an amazing woman and one I admired very much. Goodbye Vivian. You were a truly classy lady!

  6. I cannot write a tribute to Vivian without telling how she came looking for me when she learned her friend’s niece was living nearby. That’s the way she was–kind, generous and gracious. For four years I had the privilege of being part of the Fiore family. Vivian became my friend and confidante. I will always believe that providence was at work when I rented a room just a block and a half away from the Fiores.

  7. Vivian was my Aunt, the elder sister to my Mother, Grace Vitello-Bellion. Even though we did not live close by, my entire childhood is filled with wonderful memories of my Aunt, Uncle and Cousins. We visited each other often and at every single christmas, she lovingly packed a huge box, filled with wonderful presents for all. Uncle Anthony and Aunt Vivian traveled extensively and always remembered to add to the collection of horse statues my sister and I had. She was like a second Mother to me, especialy after my own Mother passed away. I could always count on her to be understanding, patient and loving. When I was reunited with my son, I introduced him to this part of his family on Vivian’s 91st birthday. When I told her about him, she said, “Oh, how wonderful”! Mathew was overwhelmed at the warm welcome he received from her and his cousins. Each time I walked into her home, I always felt like it was my second home, because of her. I was always close with my cousins and now I feel as if we are more like sisters, now. I loved her very, very much! I will keep her alive in my heart forever.

  8. Vivian was my grandmother. She was always a large part of my life and I miss her very much. When I was younger, we would take long walks in her yard on Church St. and read books on the couch in her living room. She was very loved by our family and we will always remember her.
