The family is planning a private service to be held at a later date.
Vivian was born on Sept. 15, 1947 in Scotland County, daughter of the late Lester and Sarah Walters Blades. She retired from L.O.F. Pilkington Glass after many years of service. She enjoyed traveling to the beach and mountains with her brother and sisters. Vivian loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

The family requests that memorial donations be made in memory of Mrs. O’Brien to Hospice of Scotland County, P.O. Box 1033, Laurinburg, NC 28353.
