Zion, and Karen Roberts and husband, Kenny, of Five Forks; and several nieces and nephews.

Vivian spent her days caring for her home and family. She was a long-time member of the Waldeck United Methodist Church and enjoyed socializing with her friends at the Lewis County Senior Center while playing cards and BINGO. Vivian also enjoyed quilting one-of-a-kind family heirlooms and shopping.
