Vivian was born in Birmingham, AL, to Arthur and Juanita Ross, on November 6, 1954. She spent her childhood in Kinston, North Carolina, attending local schools. She graduated from Grainger High School in 1974, before pursuing higher education.

Though she spent most of her time in North Carolina, Vivian was a free soul and loved to travel. She lived in a multitude of states during her lifetime, including Florida, New York, South Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Colorado, and Montana.

Amongst the many journeys in her adult life, Vivian received her associate of Applied Science in Business and Office Technology from Jones County Junior College in Ellisville, Mississippi, and later, an Associate of Arts degree from the same college.

Vivian worked in several career fields, including food service, retail, manufacturing, and prior to retiring, she worked at a call center in the healthcare industry.

A woman of many interests, Vivian enjoyed crafting, sewing, crocheting, reading, and traveling in her free time.

She always had a positive outlook on life and encouraged everyone to see the sunny side of any situation.
