Vivian Maxine Lehman Fulk, 86, of Willow Tree Care Center in Delta, Colo., went to be with our Lord Dec. 29, 2015, at 11:10 p.m.
She was the next to oldest child of Thurman and Helga (Olsen) Lehman, who lived in Lexington, Ohio, in their later years. She was born March 6, 1929, in Michigan. She graduated from Lexington High School and was honorably discharged from the Army.
Most of her life she spent on the farm. She enjoyed seeing the farm animals grazing out on pasture. She retired from General Industries in Bellville, Ohio.
Vivian enjoyed the companionship of her faithful miniature dachshund, Ellie May. Vivian enjoyed traveling and spent some time working for the parks service in Death Valley, Calif. She drove with a friend to and from Alaska, toured parts of Europe and spent some time in Hawaii. She dearly loved her girlfriends. She was an avid reader and spent the last 21 years of her life living in Colorado with her daughter, Deb and husband John Teaters.
Surviving siblings are Don and Pat Lehman of Carolina Shores, N.C., and Gloria and Bernie Shrider of Montrose, Colo.
She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Caroll and Everett Lehman from Lexington, Ohio.
Vivian has three other children who live in Ohio, Steven and Diane Fulk, Diana and Dan Sipes of Lexington and Randy Fulk of Fredericktown. Vivian had nine grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
Her wishes were for no viewing or services. She will be cremated at Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory, with a special service with family at a later date.
In memory of Vivian Fulk, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Wounded Warriors Project.
She was a very respectable, caring and giving woman who will be forever missed. Her daughter Deb states that she was a very beautiful woman with a beautiful heart. She will greatly miss her mom.
Love you always Mom.
