Vivian embodied living life to the fullest. She enjoyed spending her time gardening, reading, and caring for her beloved shelties – Cosmo, Shelby, and Mars. Any time she could spend outside was a pleasure. She loved meeting new people and was sure to be fast friends with whomever she met. Perhaps her favorite times were spent simply visiting and sharing stories of her life with her family and extensive network of friends who remember her as living a life full of grace and class.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 37 years, Red Clark, her parents, brother Clarence “Mack” McCord, and three sisters – Alice Lofland, Millie Pfeifley, and LaVonne Weidner with whom she was especially close. All were sure to greet her in a joyous reunion in Heaven.
