Vivienne Frances Urban (née Weber)
May 20, 1929 – May 26, 2022
Only days after celebrating her 93rd birthday, Vivienne Urban passed away on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Humboldt District Hospital, in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. She was very loved and will be dearly missed. Vivienne was born on May 20, 1929, to her parents Joseph and Rosa (née Scheffler) Weber in the Bruno District. Her life was spent in the local area, except for a time in her young adult years when she moved to Saskatoon to work at a bookstore. Until then, she grew up on the family farm, attended school in Bruno, and worked for neighbours with housekeeping and childcare. After going to a dance with Karl, they dated for five years, and were married on June 10, 1953. As it said on their 60th wedding anniversary card, “some honeymoons never end,” and their married life together was just shy of 69 years. Vivienne was never without something to do. She took meticulous care of her home, garden and yard, and her flowers and birds both brought her joy. Quilting, crocheting, knitting, and rugmaking were some of her creative pastimes, but painting was her favorite. Socializing with family, especially the grandkids, at Wakaw Lake, fishing and visiting, and making time for her weekly Rumoli rounds were special for Vivienne. In her younger years, she could be found helping with CWL functions, serving funeral lunches and the annual fall supper. Hosting get-togethers with “the Gang” for birthdays and anniversaries, or snowmobiling, and holiday meals with family, were all highlights for Vivienne. In the last few years, she was glad for drives in the country when she could look for wildlife, keep an eye on the combining and seeding, and stop at the farm for a visit. If you dropped in at her place, she always had a plate of goodies and a coffee to share. Known as a “one of a kind woman,” Vivienne always had well kept hair and clothes and a way about her which gave her a little spark and let you know she was glad to be a part of life, and all that living brings. With her death, the Weber family is now all together again, as Vivienne was the last surviving sibling in her family. She is survived by her loving husband Karl; her son Glenn and his wife Elaine (née Serblowski); her grandchildren Trevor (Joslyn), and Lindsay; her great-grandchildren Charlee, and Dalton; and by numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Rosa (née Scheffler) Weber, and all her siblings, and in-laws. On Saturday, June 25, 2022, at 2:00 p.m., the Funeral Mass was offered in St. Bruno Roman Catholic Church, for Vivienne, celebrated by Fr. Pius Schroh. Others taking part were: Trevor Urban, cross bearer; Charlee Urban and Dalton Urban, scripture readers; Lindsay Urban, intentions; Bernie Huber, eucharistic minister; Elaine Urban, eulogist; members of the St. Bruno Parish CWL, honor guard. Music ministry was led by Janis Lemke-Bruesch and members of the St. Bruno Parish Choir. The urn bearer was Karl Urban and the interment followed the Mass at St. Bruno Roman Catholic Cemetery, with the memorial luncheon held afterwards in the St. Bruno Parish Church Hall. Memorial donations may be offered in Vivienne’s memory to the St. Bruno Parish Cemetery Fund (P.O. Box 328, Bruno, SK, S0K 0S0), or to request Memorial Masses.
