Povard, Vivian (Juanita)

Fortified with the sacraments of Holy Mother Church, on Sunday, September 16, 2018, at the age of 83. Loving daughter of the late Vivian A. Povard and Eva Novack Povard; devoted sister of the late Bonnie Palmer, Rose Mary Rice and Vincent Povard. Dear aunt, great-aunt, sister-in-law, cousin and friend to many.

During her life, Vivian had three great loves: her family, religious life and her students. With devotion she cared for her mother and two of her siblings in their final years; for twenty-five years she lived and served faithfully as a School Sister of Notre Dame; for fifty-plus years she cherished her students in Missouri, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi by giving them every ounce of her energy and understanding.

Vivian donated her body to Saint Louis University Medical School. A Memorial Mass will be said at the School Sisters of Notre Dame Theresa Center Chapel at 320 East Ripa Avenue, Lemay, Missouri 63125 on Saturday, October 27 at 11:15 AM. Memorials may be sent to the school of your choice.
