Vivian Copper

September 4, 1925 — May 23, 2022

On May 23, 2022, Vivian Jordan Taiclet Copper heeded the call to “come home” to her Heavenly Father. She was a wonderful loving Christian, showing Christ’s love by praying and caring for others, and by sharing cakes and homemade items such as crocheted doilies, afghans and name plaques. She crocheted table clothes and bedspreads. Most of all she was always there for her family. She read books and enjoyed the birds, garden, and flowers in her yard. For many years she worked at Kerns Service Station in Dugger and Sullivan IN as cashier and in the office. We will miss her pats and hugs, but we have many sweet memories to see us through.
