GOUGH, VIVIAN “NONNIE”, - 96, of Egg Harbor Township, N.J., was called to Heaven on May 31, at the Health Center of Galloway. She lost her battle to the Corona Virus. Vivian was being cared for by the dedicated nurses and staff of the health center, who were at her side until the end. She was Born in Jersey City, N.J. and was the sixth oldest of fifteen children. She met her husband Arthur, when she was 18 years old. A year later they married, when Arthur was drafted into the Army during the second World War. She traveled with him to Army bases throughout the country. She returned home after a year to give birth to their only child Arthur Jr. After the war was over, they moved to Newark, New Jersey where they lived for several years. In 1973, Vivian and her husband moved to Egg Harbor Township, and they started a new chapter in life. Vivian became a Nurse’s assistant at Linwood Convalescent Home, where she worked for over twenty years. During her service, she received numerous awards for her outstanding performance and dedication. Vivian and her husband were active members of Saint Bernadette’s Church. The clergy would often visit their home and pray with Arthur when he was no longer able to go to Mass. Throughout her 60 year marriage, she was a dedicated caregiver to her husband who was a disabled Veteran and passed away in 2003. She was a devoted Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Her family was her life. She often would say that they were her “Legacy” in life. We were very blessed to have her in our lives for 96 years. She was a caring, dedicated, loving person who always was supportive and willing to share her knowledge and guidance. We will miss you always, but never forget you. You will always be a part of us. She is survived by her son Arthur, wife Carmela, Grandson Damon, wife Mare, Grand Daughter Melissa, Husband Chris, Great Grand Children Nicholas, Thomas, Ava and Aidan, Brother Anthony, sister Mary Grace, numerous nieces and nephews.

Dear Aunt V.,
When my mother passed at a very young age you called me every year on my birthday to wish me a happy birthday. I can’t express how much that meant to me in memory of my mother. We talked often and I will miss hearing your voice. I remember when you and my mother took a trip to Florida to visit your sister Madeline. How happy she was and how she talked about that always. You were kind to her and to us. I will miss you. Now your trip will be to heaven to join my mother and your other brothers and sisters with our Lord Jesus and smile together. Although You are all missed you will live forever in our hearts and memories.
Your niece, Diana

I worked with Vivian over 30 years ago at LLC . I worked with a great group of people & she was one of the best. I was very young and she took me under her wing & was a great mentor. I have wonderful memories of her & think of her often. She will certainly be missed by all that had the pleasure to have had known her. Patty Hampton

I worked with Vivian for many years at Linwood Convalescent Center. She was truly a wonderful nurse aide. Her patients loved her and she was so kind and caring to everyone. She will be missed.

Aunt V,
I will miss you tremendously, my heart broke when mommy passed at the young age of 57 and you stated in our lives since then. Now you are in heaven with her. May you share eternity with her and shine your grace upon us. I love you and will miss you forevermore.
Your Goddaughter Dora.
