They then moved to Brooklyn, New York, where Thurman was stationed. They returned to Canton in 1947, at which time Vivian became a stay at home mom. In 1963 she began working outside the home at Motive Parts and later Carburetor Sales and Service. Vivian and Thurman enjoyed RV camping at local campgrounds, and a few summer excursions out west. They also enjoyed fishing whenever they could, especially at Mosquito Reservoir and Lake Milton. From the late 50's to the late 80's they would usually take an annual trip to Canada fishing at Lake Nipissing, the French River and other lakes northward. Vivian attended Calvin Presbyterian Church, was active in ABWA and the Lehman Alumni Association. Since 2006 she lived at Canton Christian Home, first in independent living, and in later years assisted living. There are no services planned at this time.
