Vivien Ruth (Robinson) Seebruch

STANFORDVILLE — Vivien Ruth (Robinson) Seebruch, 85, who was born on March 6, 1935, died on April 14, 2020. 

Nursing was Vivien’s a career and passion. For over 40 years Vivien was a Registered Nurse, receiving her RN from Mount Sinai Hospital School of Nursing in 1956. She worked at Castle Point VA Hospital as a Charge Nurse, for Doctors Genevie (Patterson, N.Y.) and Philip Holtzburg as his weekend nurse for over 25 years (Millbrook). Even once she was retired, she still saw herself as a Registered Nurse. 

Born to Spencer Robinson and Vivian Coleman Robinson in Mount Holly, N.J., Vivien was always the big sister to her brother, Spencer Robinson (and his wife, Beth, of Catskill, N.Y.). 

On Jan. 1, 1963, Vivien married Karl E. “Chip” Seebruch. They had 49 years of marriage before Chip passed in 2012. She helped run the family business during those years, as well. Their children are Seward “Butch” Seebruch (and his wife, Dianne, of New Paltz, N.Y.) and Karl H. “Seeb” Seebruch (and his wife, Victoria, of Big Island, Hawaii).

Vivien’s other passion in her life was her grandchildren, Dustin Seebruch (and his wife, Marris, of Stanfordville), Luke Seebruch of Big Island and Laia Seebruch of Big Island. Her famous chocolate chips will always be remembered.

Also left behind are a nephew, Spencer Robinson; a niece, Piper Malarchuk; and several great-nieces. 

Over the years, Vivien had been a Cub Scout leader, Camp Nurse and Stanford Meals on Wheels volunteer. 

A dear sister-in-law, Nancy Seebruch, and Carol Coons, a wonderful friend, previously passed.
