Vivian Elaine Hawkins Obituary
Vivian Elaine Hawkins, 60, of Hannibal, passed away Monday, June 12, 2017, at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis.

Vivian was born Aug. 10, 1956, in Vandalia, a daughter of Robert Eugene Sr. and Marietta Faye Elbert Vaughn. She was married to Nathaniel E. Hawkins of Quincy, Ill., for 16 years.

Vivian grew up in Frankford, graduated from Bowling Green High School and attended Culver-Stockton College where she studied music and art. She then attended John Wood Community College and obtained an LPN degree. She later attended Quincy University, receiving a BA in social work, attended SLU, receiving a master's in sociology, and was currently attending Life Christian University for the last several years in pursuit of her doctorate in theology.

Vivian was a member of Cathedral of Worship Church in Quincy, Second Christian Church in New London and also Embassy Christian Center in Hannibal. She worked as an LPN at Good Sameritan Home in Quincy for 15 years and spent the last several years as a private-duty nurse working all over the Tri-State area. Vivian was very involved in her church and her community.

Vivian was a world class traveler. She was a master storyteller and took her talents with her to Poland and other areas of the world. Vivian was a bright light to the community on Dec. 21, 2015, when she appeared on the "Price Is Right" television show where she won money and prizes and made it to the showcase showdown.
