Vivian Blackwell Obituary

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. 

Vivian Ann Blackwell made her transition peacefully on May 28, 2022 surrounded by her family. 

Vivian was born on July 29, 1927 along with her twin sister Betty to Frank and Estelle Cane. She grew up in Pennington, New Jersey and attended Pennington High School. 

Vivian met the love of her life Edward Blackwell Jr. They were united in holy mat­rimony on January 10, 1948 and were happily married until his death in January 2019. Edward and Vivian were blessed to have 2 children Andrea and Edward III. 

Vivian loved to travel with her husband and friends but most of all she enjoyed shopping with her twin sister Betty. She was an avid bowler. 

Vivian was caring and giving. Anyone who knew her would often comment on how she dressed just like her twin sister. She not only cared about people but also loved her dogs. 

Vivian retired from the State of New Jersey Division of Disability after many years of service. 

Vivian is preceded in death by her parents Frank L. and Estelle Cane; her husband Edward Blackwell Jr.; her brother Paul "Buddy" Cane; her sister Betty L. Smith. 

She leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Andrea R. Lynch (Charlie) of Trenton, NJ; her son Edward Blackwell III (Frances) of Tucson, AZ; three grandchil­dren Jennifer Blackwell-Hawthorne Gamel), Jonathan Blackwell (Aurora) and Colby DaFerede; eight great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and caring friends. 

When you come to the end of the road and the sun has set on me, 
I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free. 

Miss me a little-but not too long, and not with your head bowed low, 
Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me-but let me go. 

For this is a journey that we all must take, and each must go alone. 
It's all a part of the Master's plan, a step on the road to home. 

When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know. 
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me-but let me go.
