There to welcome Vivian at Heaven’s door was her parents Burrell Dulaney and Elsie Rainwater, three of her children; Jacqueline Annette, Troy Patrick and Darcy Roxane Byler, and her sister Shirley Grace Dulaney- Sanner. Vivian was survived in death by her former husband, Lloyd Peter Byler, with whom she had five beautiful children to carry on their family legacy. Daughter Jill Byler-Harrison and husband Glenn and their children Courtland and David; son Chris Byler and wife Jennie and their children Christin and Logan. Granddaughters Annette Gunter, Kendra Byler, and Amber Byler. Grandson Rusty Byler. Great grandchildren Gauge Byler, Caliber Byler, and Jacelynn Erbelding. She is also survived by Christopher Joseph Munguia and Tommy Spell whom she raised into men as her sons in heart although not by birth. Vivian graduated from Hackberry High School in 1957 then began raising her family in Hackberry, LA which brought her the most joy in her life. She enjoyed a close relationship with her sister, Shirley Grace and was a wonderful friend to many people. It gave her great joy to care for others that were struggling or just in need of a friend. She had a passion for reading and was rarely seen without a book in her hand. She loved to entertain and have people around to celebrate life. Cooking for others and being prepared with a hot meal just in case someone might “stop by” brought her such joy. Vivian had given birth to five children, but found it in her heart to take many children under her wing and treat them as her own. No one was a stranger for long, for Vivian’s home was always open to anyone in need. Vivian’s bright smile, so beautiful on earth is now home with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and has met her Heavenly Father, God.
