Vivian was a very Christian lady, devoted to God and her family, especially
her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Vivian was employed by Sears at Memorial City in Houston, when the store was
first opened, and she retired after more than 20 years faithful service.
She was a homemaker, devoted mother and excellent provider for her three
children Gene, Sue and Pat. Her specialty was taking care of her
grandchildren and great grandchildren, which gave her much pleasure.
She was fondly known to family and many friends as "Nannie." They will all
miss her greatly.
She loved to take care of her patio garden and would go out each morning and
lovingly take care of each plant before breakfast. Vivian loved playing
cards and dominoes with her family and friends. She walked in the park at

last November when she fell in her yard and broke her right wrist.

loved her Sunday school class and her church and her God.
