Vivian L. (Hoskins) Worthington, age 73 of Delaware, Ohio, passed away on Friday November 3rd, 2023 at Kobacker Hospice House. Vivian was born on February 6, 1950 in Hyden, Kentucky to Eva (Wooton) (Hoskins) Arvin and Kenneth Hoskins.
Vivian lived and worked most of her life in Hamilton, Ohio. After working for over 30 years between Key Bank and Harrison Building and Loan, she retired in 2016 and proudly took on the role of grandma. She was a devoted Hamiltonian, working with the Kiwanis club and other organizations throughout her career, and served as an elder in her church, Westwood Presbyterian, before moving to Columbus to be near her grandchildren.
She believed strongly in equality and inclusion and actively contributed toward those goals during her life. She was a caregiver in so many ways, serving as a financial guardian for others, caring for her mother in her later years and taking care of her granddaughters. She was always there when you needed her. Vivian had an unmatched sense of humor and was well-known for her wisdom, earning her the nickname “Yoda”. She loved traveling and shopping trips with her friends, gardening, sewing, reading, and having as much fun as possible with her children and grandchildren.
In later years, she most enjoyed listening to the “oldies”, a good cup of coffee and watching soccer and F1 racing with her son-in-law. Vivian was a loving mother, a devoted sister, and a loyal friend. She will never be forgotten.
She is survived by her daughters, Kelley Knight and her partner Veasna Huy and Kathryn Ammon and her husband Scott, her grandchildren, Rupert, Raymond, Natalie, and Charlotte, her siblings, Ann Shepherd, Jim Hoskins, Roy (Debra) Hoskins, and her beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Joe Hoskins and sister Barbara Deaton.
