Vivian was born in Rosedale on September 7, 1930, a daughter of the late Cecil Jarvis and Virgie King Jarvis.

On June 4, 1950, she married the love of her life, Francis William Finster. Vivian missed him dearly after his passing on October 18, 2011.

In addition to her parents and husband, Vivian was preceded in death by one great-grandchild; and four siblings: Donna Brown, Ronald Jarvis, Doloris Lowe, and Judith Rollyson.

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.
