Vivian Travers died in her home on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2017, after a long and courageous fight with Parkinson's disease. She was lovingly cared for by her high school sweetheart and husband of 50 years, Jim Travers. Vivian was a lifelong resident of Sebring. She was born Aug. 27, 1946, to Joel and Ruth Sharp. She graduated from Sebring High School in 1964 where she was a cheerleader. Hers was a life spent loving and caring for her family. She was a dedicated wife and mother, and friends were her love and joy. She loved music and would loudly burst into song to all her favorite tunes and she would often break out into accompanying dance. She had a crazy and sometimes outrageous sense of humor that withstood the test of illness. Near the end, it was only her eyes that showed the humor but she never lost it.
Vivian is reunited in heaven with her father and mother, Joel and Ruth Sharp, her in-laws, Russ and Avice Travers, and her sister-in-law, Laurie Travers, where she will be baking the Thanksgiving pies with her new and glorious body.
"Vivi" has left behind her beloved husband and love of her life, Jim Travers. She is also proudly survived by her children and grandchildren, who she could often be heard bragging about: daughter Selena (husband Clint, children Brittany and Clint Jr. and Jaymee); son J.D. (wife Kari, children Sierra, Baily and Cole); sister Anne Larman, two nieces she considered her other children, Michele Possneti and Mindy Sassman, and tons of other brothers and sisters-in-laws, nieces and nephews in the "Travers Clan."
All that loved and touched by the life of Vivian are invited to attend a memorial service at Morris Funeral Chapel at 11 a.m. Oct. 21, 2017 at 307 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring. We will reminisce, cry, support each other grieve and of course, laugh because that is the way Vivian would have wanted it.
In lieu of flowers, Vivi would want you to take a friend to lunch, go visit your grandchildren, buy a bottle of wine and say a toast to lifelong loves, and above all else, call Jimmy once in a while.
