    Our care and thoughts go out to Vivian’s family & loved ones since hearing of their loss. Vivian had such a very sweet and gentle spirit, and a love for the Lord. Hers was the home I went to through my years of nurse’s training there in Omaha, for a sweet fellowship meeting every Sunday morning … and loved her quiet life of example. Sending sincere condolences♥

    Vivian lived a beautiful life. and her life touched many lives. The life of a child of God is not an ordinary life and she was always the same, the same sweetness and graciousness. She was always reaching out to help another. We were friends for many, many years.

    Special friends leave special memories when we are left behind and Vivian’s influence is spotless. And Wendell, dear brother, I well remember your comforting hand on my shoulder when I was where you are today and may you feel the comfort of each hand extended as we continue on life’s journey to the end. Love you, brother, Jim

    I worked along side Vivian at ConAgra for many years. She was the very best person in the world to work with, sweeet, understanding and considerate. She loved the Lord and it was very refreshing to be able to speak with someone with the same feelings. To Wendell, Annie and her siblings, my sincerest condolences.
