HAMBLIN, VIVIAN (HENNES)
The world lost a wonderful person on July 27, 2013. Vivian Maxine Hennes (later known as Mackie, Biz and Grammy) was born August 31, 1923 in Kiowa, KS. In 1945 she graduated nursing school in Pueblo CO and married Merriman ("Dirk") Hamblin.
A move to California and two daughters, Gloria and Diana, soon followed. Their family life was simple but not ordinary. Besides her family, she enjoyed her sister Maree, cats and dogs and volunteering at the First United Methodist Church.
After Dirk passed away in 1987 Vivian and Maree travelled to Europe, Asia and South America. Her last and greatest role was as grandmother to Megan, Erin, Jeff and Ryan.
They are each old enough to appreciate the benefits she provided them, because she always had time to listen, read and play. Each grew up completely secure in her love for them.
She is survived by daughters Gloria (Bryan) and Diana (Scott), her beloved sister Maree, nephews Chris, Greg (Margaret), Dan, (Noemi) and Alan; niece Gaye Lynn and a large and loving extended family in CA, TX and HI.
A family celebration of life will be held on the day of her 90th birthday. Memorial donations to Ride On Therapeutic Horsemanship at www.Rideon.org
