This is “My Story”

To everything, there is a season; A time for every purpose under the heavens



  time to be born: 

On July 5, 1945, God blessed her parents the Late Louis and Ester Ferguson with their fifth daughter, Vivian Ann Ferguson, born in Appomattox, Va.  Baptized at an early age Vivian joined the Springfield Baptist Church in Appomattox, VA.  She loved her Lord and Savior.

 A  time to learn:  

Vivian attended public schools in Appomattox, VA and graduated from Carver-Price High School.  Shortly after graduation, she moved to New York City where she worked at the Headquarters of J.C. Penny’s before returning home to VA.

  time to love: 

Vivian loved her family dearly because she knew they loved her oh so much.  Her sister Joyce was always there for her, like a mother, sister, friend, and a loving caregiver.  May God Bless Joyce for her unconditional love and dedication (The Family)

 time to laugh:

Vivian enjoyed family gatherings, “Loved her Birthday”, cookouts, and other events.  She enjoyed Pepsi, Double Mint gum; loved watches, pocketbooks, pictures, White Diamond Talc Powder and Perfume, and music.  She would always be ready on April fool’s Day, “Got Ya”.  She had a great sense of humor.  Viv was the unofficial Administrator of the Health Care Center.  She would meet you at the nursing station with a smile and a phone in her basket.  We thank the staff of the Appomattox Health Care Center for their care as shown to Vivian.

  time to say “Good-Bye”: 

Vivian died unexpectedly, April 10, 2019.  She leaves to cherish her memory, five sisters; Henrietta Preston (James), Clara McIvor, Maggie Thurman, Joyce Ferguson, and Wanda Gafford, numerous nephews and nieces, relatives and friends.
