VIVIAN EPSTEIN RABINOVITCH Vivian Epstein Rabinovitch daughter of Louis and Leah Epstein died in Toronto on July 20, 2021 in her 93rd year after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. A sharp, intelligent, fun-loving woman with a superb sense of humour she was a stellar student at Strathcona Academy in Montreal. A fierce debater in school, she later became a political junkie and lover of movies. After McGill, married to Sam, she obtained her Masters at Purdue University and practised as a clinical psychologist. Fiercely independent to the end, she was supported in Montreal in her later years by her daughter Nadine and her devoted caregivers, Emie, Tess and Rebecca. Predeceased by her husband Sam, she will be missed by her sister Eileen (Ralph), her brother Norman, her children Jed (Marsha), Nina and Nadine (André), grandchildren Fanny, Marty (Janine), Jason and Lola and her great grandchildren Russell and Ava and all of her amazing Montreal childhood friends! Special thanks to all the staff at One Kenton Place in Toronto and her special helpers Mildred and Jeanette. Donations to the Alzheimer Society or the charity of your choice.

I remember the animated and interesting conversations we all had at many of Jed and Marsha's Seders. She was a very bright lady. And she knew my mother's family many years before that. So sorry for your loss

I remember Vivian so well from my childhood. She endlessly debated movies with my father, Morrie Rohrlick, and she had such a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. My condolences to Jed, Nina, Nadine and their families.
