She was preceded in death by her parents Earl and Mable Trower, and her younger brother Charles W. Trower. Vivian Was born on April 24, 1941, in Fresno, California. She graduated from Central High School in 1959. She was always a Grizzley fan and enjoyed being a part of the class of 1959 Reunion Committee. She enjoyed the outdoors and most everyone can remember seeing Vivian farming in her Walnut orchard located outside of Kingsburg in Kings County. Her love of the outdoors and farming started at a young age and was instilled in her by the love of farming from her father. Vivian more commonly known as " Nana B" as most people knew her the past 34 years, loved her granddaughters and enjoyed helping them with any projects that came along. When it came to being a cheerleader, homework helper, or driver to events, she was always eager to make sure the girls made it to their destinations. Nana B. was their biggest fan! She had the opportunity to see both her granddaughters marry their best friends as well as be at the birth of her great grandchildren even though that meant last minute plans to catch a plane out of state. She was always ready to for an adventure especially when it came to her granddaughters. She is certainly experiencing the joy and love in Heaven that she gave those whom she loved her on earth. On March 25th, at 10:00 am , a Graveside Service will be held at Mountain View Cemetery, 1411 W. Belmont Avenue, in Fresno, California. The service will be held at the Butterfly Garden.
