Vivian moved frequently in her youth to various small communities in Northern California (Willow Creek, Weaverville & Truckee) and Southern Oregon (Klamath County) while her dad worked in the logging industry and road construction.  On January 28, 1955 her mother died as a result of burns when her bathrobe caught on fire.  Her father remarried in the early 1960’s to Ruth Flournoy and she became a sister again to their children Cindy and Wade.
