Vivian volunteered for many years at Eastlawn Elementary assisting students with reading. She was an avid reader and writer, especially long letters to family and friends. She enjoyed cooking, baking, and crocheting. Vivian had lived an amazing life, from being born and raised on the prairie in North Dakota, like "Laura Ingles". She had lived through the dust bowl, depression, World War II, and sending men to the moon. The best and most amazing thing is Vivian wrote everything down and made a book of her life story and history for her family.
