Lives Lived: Vivian Decker

In loving memory of Vivian Zoe Decker, who was born in Torrence on Feb. 26, 1928. She passed away in Auburn on March 5 at the age of 82.

At her request, no services will be held.

Vivian grew up in Martinez and loved reading, gardening, watching movies, and spending time with her family. She had a great love of baseball, especially her “Giants.”

She was a very generous and loving person. “She will be greatly missed and will remain in our hearts forever.”

Vivian is survived by her children Scott (Linda) Mitchell, Gale (Deb) Mitchell, Joanie Graham and Eric (Shannon) Decker; sister, Norma McKenzie; grandchildren Christine, Rene, Courtney, Shealyn, Devon, Brooke, and numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and countless, loving friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, John O’lague; sister-in-law, Mary O’lague, and the love of her life, Bob France.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Humane Society or Disabled American Veterans.
