Vivian resided in Coal City, WV for the past 73 years and faithfully attended Cales Chapel Pentecostal Holiness Church until her health began to fail. She was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great and great-great-grandmother, sister and aunt. She grew up in Sophia, WV and was a member of the first graduating class of Sophia High School. She had a thirst for knowledge and was an avid reader, enthusiastic traveler always ready for the next adventure, and was well known for touching many lives by the cards (birthday, anniversary, get well, and thinking of you) she faithfully mailed each month. She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
We would like to thank all of her neighbors and church family for their love and support, the Hospice Nurses and CNA’s for their excellent care, and Angie Sizemore, her personal care giver.
The family will receive friends from 6:00-9:00 pm, Thursday, June 25, 2020 at Blue Ridge Funeral Home.
Funeral services will be private due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Chapel of Blue Ridge Funeral Home with the Reverend Ken Parent and Pastor Lee Wooten officiating.
