In March 2008, Vivian was led to unite with the Mount Canaan Full Gospel Church, under the leadership of Pastors Willie B. & Patricia A.

Vivian's faith was exemplified through her dedication to home, her family, and her friends. She will always be remembered for her generous spirit and pleasant personality.
