She was a devoted mother, a member of Crossroads Bible Church, and an active volunteer. In her later years she moved to Pueblo, Colorado where her daughter lived with her. 

Vivian was proceeded in death by her husband, Lester, her son David, and seven of her eight siblings. She is survived by children Leslie Vallejos (Michael Stanley) of Pueblo, CO and Stephen Hackenberry (Rebecca) of Thornton, CO, grandchildren Jennifer Wells, Quirina Vallejos, Patrick Hackenberry, Mauro Vallejos, Kristopher Hackenberry, and Linnea Vallejos, and 11 great grandchildren. 

The family will gather in Los Alamos, NM at a later date to celebrate her life. Interment will be at Guaje Pines Cemetery in Los Alamos.
