Wyzinski, Mary Vivian Iris

Posted by on March 14, 2017

Vivian Wyzinski (nee Johns) died peacefully in her sleep at age 95, on March 11th in Amherstburg due to Alzheimer’s disease.

Our beloved mother grew up in Windsor and met dad at a high school dance in 1943. After we had grown up, mom earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Windsor. She worked as a dietician until she was needed at home, first to care for her mother and then later, our dad who died in 1985. For amusement she enjoyed water-skiing, traveling, and dancing but her main goal was to get each of us four kids off to a good start in life.

At the Richmond Terrace Nursing Home, mom would break into dance moves, waving her hands and shimmying her hips, often smiling and winking, with or without music, to the delight of the other residents. As mom’s condition deteriorated and the end approached, the staff at Richmond Terrace spared no effort to keep her comfortable and ease the pain of our family.

Sadly, most of mom’s friends have already passed away. Caloe Ung, mom’s private caregiver, gently looked after our mother during the last four years of her life. Jean Echlin provided invaluable counsel at the most difficult moments. Mom had a special place in her heart for Father Eugene Halitsky.

She is survived by her children, John in Belle River, Henry and Shelly in Florida and Kingsville, Mary Ann in Amherstburg, and Peter with his wife Nancy in Vancouver, Washington. She will also be missed by three grand-daughters, Suzanne, Lorian, and Deanna, one grandson, Peter, and one great-grandson, John Luke, as well as previous daughter-in-law, Peggy Syrowik. Dear cousins are Rosemary and Veronica Boretsky, Mary Kindiak, Stewart Johns, Jean Johns, and Gail Balog.

Visitation at Windsor Chapel 1700 Tecumseh Rd. E. 519-253-7234 from 3 to 5 pm and 6 to 8 pm on Wednesday, March 15. Funeral Service at 10:30 am on Thursday. Burial to follow at Windsor Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Online condolences and cherished memories may be shared with the family at www.windsorchapel.com
