Vivian Dellheim Obituary

Vivian Dellheim, a devoted wife, loving mother and cherished Lola to her grandchildren, peacefully passed away alongside her family, on September 26, 2023 after a long and courageous health battle. 

Born in the Philippines to Vicente and Obdulia, and a sister to William, Wilson, Vicente Jr and Bernardita, Vivian grew up amongst a large and loving family. Following the passing of both of her parents in her childhood, Vivian’s family bound together and supported each other throughout their upbringing. While working in an Italian restaurant in the Philippines, Vivian would meet her future husband, Daniel, where they later married and began their family together. Vivian lived the American dream, coming to America with Daniel and raising their children, Elizabeth and Joshua,  in their suburban Peabody home. A beloved cook by her family and friends, dishes such as her famous egg rolls would generate a noticeable buzz and excitement knowing they were being made.  Always when asked what her secret ingredient was, she would simply state “love”.

Obstacles and hardships never stopped Vivian.  Instead, she always chose to live a life of love, strength and resilience. Time and time again, when overcoming these obstacles, Vivian continued to approach life with a glowing smile, and her perseverance served as an inspiration to all who knew her. 

Vivian’s soul and spirit live on through her husband Daniel, daughter and her husband Elizabeth and Matthew, her son and his wife Joshua and Vanessa, her three grandchildren Avellina, Lorenzo and Molly, sister Bernardita, brothers Wilson and Vicente Jr, Ate Leticia and her children, Josephine and Anthony, and numerous other loving family members and dearest friends. As part of her wishes, Vivian’s ashes will be spread at Bass Rocks in Gloucester, in a private ceremony with immediate family members. In lieu of services, donations can be made to the American Heart Association, or for those inclined, planting hydrangeas in her honor, Vivian’s favorite.
