At an early age her family moved to Los Angeles. She then met and married Don Erickson Sr in Las Vegas. They rented a house on Water Street. They saved their money and bought a house on 521 Karen Way where they raised 3 children, Vivian Lee Elkins (nee Erickson), Don Erickson Jr (Patti). & Darrell Erickson (Ren). We all went to Basic Elementary, Burkholder Jr High, and graduated from Basic High School in1966, 1968, & 1970. She was a homemaker and wonderful Mother. Her first job was at the Safeway bakery. She then studied to get her Real Estate License. She went to work for Roberts Realty & they opened an office on Lake Mead Blvd where she became the Broker. Our Father passed away in 1974 at the age of 47. She never wavered, and involved herself in the Community Church, her loving "Joy Circle"; American Business Women, and later, in the "Red Hats" organization and was also active in the Henderson Community.

Our love of you will continue for all eternity. She is survived by 4 loving grandchildren; Charles Brook England (Vickie), Ryan England, Donald Jason Erickson (Dawn), and Mindy Erickson.

Vivian was truly a great lady. She a fantastic broker for our Henderson office. After work hours she became the life of the party. She will always be remembered by all who knew her. My deepest condolences to her family that she loved so very much.
