Outside of work, Vivian had a passion for reading romance novels; Danielle Steele being her favorite author. She also enjoyed playing board games like Scrabble and enjoyed playing card games.  

She had a passion for collecting frog figurines of all types and sizes. Her collection started with just a few, but over time it grew to include hundreds of unique pieces. She loved the intricate details and colors of each figurine and took great pride in displaying them in her home.

Watching soap operas was her cherished pastime with her favorites being "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."

She was a member of New Life In Christ Fellowship. She loved listening to gospel music and the soulful sounds of Al Green.

She leaves cherished memories to her daughters, Ella Perry of Coatesville, Christine Perry of Kansas, her niece who was like a daughter, Alice Walker-Stokes of Honeybrook; one son, Michael Perry (Pilar) of Denver, PA; brother, Richard E. Walker, Sr. (Marie) of Parkesburg; best friends, Barbara Brown, and Brenda Cole; 6 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
