Vivian lived life to the fullest, always sharing and giving. She loved to cook, sing and go fishing. Her passion in life was taking care of stray animals, often taking in and finding homes for them. Her loving heart, big blue eyes, witty sense of humor and beautiful smile made so many people laugh and smile. She adored her nephews and shared many good times with them.


Vivian never stopped missing her sister, Jessica, and it can only be imagined that they are having a great time now -- "the Reynolds girls" together again!
