Vivian, an acclaimed artist and printmaker, is survived by her loving husband Samuel, her children Mark, David, Jonas, and Michael, and her grandchildren, Noah, Lyn, Alexander, Zachary, Nicholas, Samantha, Madeline, Emma, and Alana.
Vivian was born in New York City in 1928, and graduated from The Cooper Union in 1950. Her artwork has been exhibited worldwide and is in the permanent collections of many museums including the U.S. Library of Congress.
