    I came to OMC in 1985 and Viv was a LEGEND even then. She was a leader. She was a confidant. She was a doer. She was instrumental in so many projects that improved patient care and staff education, competency and job satisfaction. Her mentorship extended beyond nursing and she was always willing to answer questions. I benefited from Viv’s knowledge on many occasions. I am proud that I was able to care for her during her illness. During her last stay I told her I was going to speak at the Lights of Life celebration and she told me that it was her brainchild. I hope I honored her by including that info in my speech.
    My heart breaks at the loss of Viv but HALLELUJAH she is HEALED.
    Let the image of her Heavenly reunion bring you comfort, a smile to your face and soothe your hurting hearts.
    What a legacy she leaves.

    I remember her smile as she faithfully sang every Sunday in the choir at First Baptist Church. That is quite a legacy for us to remember; her faithfulness to her Lord and Savior. Sorry for your loss. May you heal as you remember this wonderful lady.

    My heart aches for the family and all who were privileged to have known Vivian. She was one of those wise souls who knew how to listen to people and know just what they needed to help them. I will be forever grateful for her friendship and help when I needed it most. I loved to sing duets with her. So, sweet girl, you lift your voice and “teach the angels how to sing”. All comfort and love to Dale and family.

    I’m sorry to learn of Vivian’s passing just a few months ago. I’ve been living in Springfield now for 8 years, but I will always remember how, when I was in West Plains, she tried to help me find my Revolutionary War roots. It wasn’t until the opening up of the internet and that the Springfield chapter found the final links.
    I’ve been a DAR for almost 1 year now, but will always think of Viv as a vital help in my search.
    God bless you sweet Vivian.
