Since becoming a resident of Riverfront Manor, she became a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Pelican Rapids. Viv had no children of her own, but is survived by many nieces and nephews, many who thought of her as a second 'Mom'. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with them attending birthdays, Christmases, baptisms, confirmations, graduations, weddings, and finally enjoying her great nieces and nephews. She crafted gifts for her family, knitting, needlepoint, hardanger, and making Christmas stockings. Viv enjoyed visiting, having coffee and putting puzzles together with special friends at Riverside on Main. Viv's quick wit, always ready to giggle at jokes and funny stories, was always 'up' on politics, and what was happening in the world. Viv always remembered birthdays and special occasions with a card and a phone call. Her positive attitude and reminders that 'age is just a number' carried her throughout her 91 years of life. Auntie Vivie will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
