Vivian and Glen were neighbors to my family while growing up in south Danville. Vivian was always a calm, thoughtful person and her professionalism carried her into and through her career at DACC. Many retirees at DACC have her to thank for her expert record-keeping. As an employee at DACC myself, she was tops in her job at keeping track of details. I expressed my gratitude to her several years ago when we met at dinner and she seemed happy to hear it. RIP, Vivian, for a life well-lived.

Very sorry to hear of Vivian's passing. She was my Supervisor at DACC for a few years and was wonderful to work for. Vivian was very professional in every way and was highly respected in the DACC community. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
