We will love and remember you forever
  • 77 years old
  • Born on July 9, 1939 in Estonia.
  • Passed away on July 28, 2016 in Sarasota, Florida, United States.

This memorial website was created in honor of our beloved mother WiiviAnn Arvidsson, 77, born on July 9, 1939 and passed away on July 28, 2016. She was a beautiful person and we will remember her forever.

Remeber Me - 
To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea - remember me.
As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity - remember me.
Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,
the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always remember me, I will never be gone.

Memories...so many wonderful memories! I went to Rockport today and had a lobster in your memory. I know what you would say...”Oh, poor you!” and then you would laugh :) I miss you mom... oxox

Happy Birthday Mamma, We went to the Beach House restaurant for your birthday last year and it was your last outing. The weather was beautiful and the beach so nice. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. I love and miss you forever!

Kära Vivi! Idag tänker jag på dig på din dag. Och minns vår underbara mailkontakt och brevväxling under många år. Saknar dig så mycket. Minns du alla bilder jag tog, mycket med tanke på att visa dig trädgård, barn och barnbarn. Nu känns det inte lika roligt längre. Men ibland går vi sida vid sida och upplever allt gemensamt. Så du finns i mina tankar, ska du veta. Din vän för alltid Gunilla

Steve & I are so saddened by the news of Vivian's passing. We remember so many happy times with her and Nils. We enjoyed golfing, birthday, holiday and wedding celebrations as well as just simple get -togethers on the lanai. She was devoted to her family and will certainly be missed by all who knew her. Our thoughts are with Anna, Rose-Marie and families.

Ian and I are saddened to hear about the passing of our friend WiiviAnn. Although several years have passed since we spent time together, we will cherish the great memories of our time with her and Nils. Anna and RoseMarie, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Rose-Marie and Anna, We will remember Viviann and Nils-Axel as two nice people that we learnd to know 1966 in Hoogezand , the Netherlands. Rose-Marie was about 6 years and the 3 of you came from Sweden. We lived next to each other (Kerkstraat) and had many nice times together. At the time that Anna(-Karin) was born your family moved to Leek where you lived until you get back to Zweden and Ekerö. Thanks to Christmas cards we were able to follow your lives. The last years we have had some nice mails from Viviann. We will never forget Viviann and Nils-Axel. They are a part of our lives. You really have had nice parents. Take care.

Rose-Marie, Our family is so sorry for your loss. Your Mom had such a great spirit. We saw her around her family & grandchildren and you could tell how much she loved being with everyone. She & your Dad were the cutest couple. As hard as it is to say good-bye to someone we love, we're certain she's in a better, pain free place and that Nils & Lars are with her. Love, Diane, Chin, Kimmy, & Corinne

Dear Rose-Marie, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Your mom is now at peace and reunited with your Dad and Lars in a much better place. it is just so sad to have to say goodbye to all of them. Love, Marie, Bill, Katie, and Jason

Min älskade kära vän. Tack för allt vi har delat med varandra under många år. Du har stöttat mig, och funnits där i både lycka och sorg. Nu när du inte finns här längre ,är saknaden mycket stor. Jag vet att du har haft det så kämpigt, men att du nu fått komma till ro. Och jag hoppas att vi någonstans ska mötas igen. Kommer alltid att minnas dig. With Love din vän Gunilla

Viv, you shined from within, making you a truly beautiful woman both inside and out. I will miss you and think of you often.

Dear Mormor, I spent some time remembering all the moments we shared... and I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you for making me sandwiches to eat when you'd pick me up from the airport as a child, thank you for coming to my high school and college graduation, thank you for unconditionally supporting me in my skating and my academics, thank you for being a safe haven in the storm. I miss you and I love you. Please tell Pappa and Lars I love them too.
Posted by Rose-Marie Skagerholm on 29th July 2016
My Dear Mamma, I lit a candle by your bed side during those final hours and I will light one now. I am so proud of you...what an amazing woman you were! It is not only reflected in your daughters but in your grandchildren. Their driven and strong personalities has such resemblance with yours. As I sat by the beach this morning 6 dolphins came by, really close to the beach. . . Thank you for letting me know you are finally all together again. I miss you, mamma and always will, but I am so happy that you are now at peace. Love always, Rose-Marie

I never met her. But my husband did and one time she sent him home with an orchid to give me. I still have it on my back porch and it still blooms every year. Our condolences to you and your family, Anna. - Catie & Jesse
Posted by Mark Lythgoe on 28th July 2016
Dear Viv, It is sad that we will never meet again in life, but I am heartened that your pain has ended. You were always nice and very giving to us and will never be forgotten. I will miss your warm smile and effervescent hugs. For all of the events and tribulations that transpired over the last 3 years, you kept our head up and spirits high. It was never easy, although I am sure that Anna and Rosie's support helped tremendously. May you spend your days dancing with Nils, and cuddling with Mango and Bambi. Love. Mark

Haj Viv, I am so happy that you are finally at peace and with your beloved Nils, as well as Mango and Bambi. However I can't deny that a piece of me is very sad that you are gone. i shall surely miss your happy, smiling presence at our family gatherings, especially Thanksgivings at the Don. The world is worse off without your loving, kind and friendly presence. Thank you for making our family so comfortable within your family circle. It was always a pleasure to be around you. I will continue to think of you fondly when i see orchids, shells, alligators, birds and a multitude of other things in nature. You will be sorely missed. Enid.

Dear Mom, you were an inspiration and joy. I am so proud that you were my mom. My strength, success and need for adventure is all because of you. You were always there for me no matter what. I know you will be greeted by angels that will guide you to Pappa, Bambi and Mango. I love you forever and will never forget all our beautiful moments. You and Me Forever...♥♥
