Vivian (Viv) Lucille Trenholm


December 14, 1913 – April 24, 2011

Vivian left this earth peacefully to be with her heavenly father and saviour on this past Easter Sunday surrounded by her loving family.

Vivian was born in Clodford, Alberta and was married to Wallace on December 24, 1931. After moving from Alberta, Wallace and Vivian became long time residents of BC. They resided in Tappen, Sunnybrae and then to Auto Road. In 1990 Vivian moved to Salmon Arm and in March 2011 she moved to Shuswap Lodge. She enjoyed gardening, her flowers, her grandchildren, and the many visitors who graced her home.

Vivian was predeceased by her husband, Wallace in January 1990 and her son-in-law, Les Bingham in September 1999. She was also predeceased by all 12 siblings. Vivian is survived by her loving children: Gladys, Martha (Ken), Edward (Val), Viola (Bob) and Lillian (Bob). She leaves to mourn 13 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 15 great great grandchildren. Her church family has been an important part of her life over the years as well as her large extended family and friends. Many thanks to the doctors and staff at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital for their excellent care on her many visits.

A celebration of life was held on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at the 5th Ave. Senior Centre, 170 5th Ave. SE, Salmon Arm, BC with Pastor George Fleming officiating.
