Please share a memory of Vivian to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Vivian L. Bassett Penn Yan: With the love of her family by her side, Vivian Sharier Bassett went to stand at the gates of heaven to see our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on Monday May 27, 2013. She was the daughter and 8th child of the late Harold and Marguerite Sharier. Vivian was born June 8, 1945 in Barberton, Ohio. But, she lived most of her life in Penn Yan, New York. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to many. She touched all that crossed her path in some special way. Vivian worked and retired from Soldiers and Sailors Hospital, the Homestead where she truly enjoyed helping others. More than anything in this world, she loved her family. She was always happy to see them and would do anything for them. She leaves to cherish her memory with love and heartache her devoted husband Russell Bassett. Words cannot express the love that she had for her children, Donald Jerry (Donna) Smith Jr., Rebecca (Howard) Leach and Wesley Jimmy (Lori) Smith. The joy of Vivian's life was her Grandchildren, Jennifer and Kelli Smith, Heather Leach, Holly (Cory) Sabins, Heidi Leach and Lucas Smith. Also her great-grandchildren, Aidan McIntyre, Abbie Sabins and Charlotte Sabins. Along with several step-children, step-grandchildren and step-great grandchildren whom she dearly loved. She will always hold a special place in her families' heart and will be dearly missed by brothers; Harold, Dave (Monika), Howard, Chuck (Julie), Robert, Joseph, Paul (Martina) and Forrest Sharier and sisters: Patty (Duff) Kraft, Mabel (Robert) Blasdell, Sandra (Joe) Shaffer, and Helen Richard. Beside her parents, Vivian was also predeceased by brothers, John and Frank Sharier and sisters, precious Margaret Sharier and Shirley Williams. Vivian may you now, and forever rest and peace. A memorial service will be held on Saturday June 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm at The Dresden United Methodist Church in Dresden with Pastor Marilyn Wood officiating. Arrangements have been made by Baird Funeral Home in Dundee. Online condolences can be sent by visiting Vivian will be laid to rest in a private family ceremony in Pennsylvania at a later date. This was her favorite spot, maybe because it is half way between her family in New York and her family in Ohio. All your love, thoughts and prayers for Vivian and family are appreciated.
