The Lady with the smile and a friend to all, Vivienne passed away peacefully on August 18, 2021 at the age of 90 at the Ottawa General Hospital, after a brief illness.

She was much-loved by her husband of 63 years, Jim O’Shaughnessy, as well as her brother Kevin Kehoe of Napanee.

Born and educated in Montreal, she was a longtime member of the choir at St. Patrick’s parish in Fallowfield, an avid golfer and a former Ladies Captain of the Amberwood Golf and Country Club in Stittsville. She also volunteered for more than 10 years at the local Stittsville library and worked at the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
