Obituary for Vivian Rosborough

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness...” 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (KJV)

Vivian Marie Rosborough was born February 4, 1939, to the union of George and Fannie Griffin Rosborough in Marshall, Texas. She was the second of three children. Vivian spent her childhood in Marshall, Texas receiving her formal education at Park Elementary and graduating from HB Pemberton High School in 1957. While in Marshall, she gave birth to her first son, Ross Rosborough. In 1960, Vivian relocated to Los Angeles, California where she had her second son, Vincent Rosborough.

Upon moving to California, Vivian pursued her passion for sewing and worked as a seamstress from 1960 through 1970. In 1970, Vivian began working for Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) where she was promoted to Senior Personnel Clerk. Throughout her years of service at LAUSD, she assisted numerous people, supporting others when they needed help and finding solutions to various problems. Vivian was adored by everyone she encountered. Vivian loved helping others on and off the job. On May 5th, 2000, she happily retired from LAUSD after 30 years of dedicated service.

After retiring, Vivian relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada for a brief four years, only to return to California where she eventually moved to the city of Camarillo to be closer to her dear sister and family.

Vivian was a loving mother, grandmother, and aunt. She loved being surprised on her birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas. She would always say, “You didn’t have to get me anything” or “I didn’t need anything.” Though modest, she loved that you thought of her and never said no to a thoughtful gift. Vivian’s favorite pastime was going out to eat and visiting the casino. She also took pleasure in traveling and going on cruises, but most of all, she loved taking care of her family. She delighted in cooking for family, making delectable meals and desserts. Anything they needed; she would provide! Along with a generous spirit she had a kind a forgiving heart. Teaching her family to always forgive and never hold grudges. This was a true standard that she encouraged and lived her life by.

On Wednesday, February 15th, 2023, Vivian Marie Rosborough quietly entered God’s eternal rest. She was preceded in death by her father, George Rosborough; her mother, Fannie Griffin; her sister, Helen Nickelberry; and her brother, Lucius Rosborough.

Vivian leaves to cherish her memory: her two beloved sons, Ross Rosborough of Los Angeles, CA and Vincent Rosborough of San Antonio, TX; her wonderful grandchildren, Clanaé Tarrance (Corey) of Atlanta, GA, Shawntee Rosborough of Los Angeles, CA, Ryan Rosborough of San Antonio, TX, and Justin Rosborough of Buena Park, CA; three precious great-grandchildren, Courtney & Caleb Rosborough of San Antonio, TX, and Corey “CJ” Tarrance Jr. of Atlanta, GA; three beautiful nieces, Sabrena Stice (Carl) of San Jose, CA, Denise Nickelberry of Jackson, TN, and Tressie Nickelberry of Baltimore, MD; a devoted host of great nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Vivian will be truly missed by all that knew her or had the opportunity to spend time with her and be in her presence.

Heaven just received another angel and she will watch over her family from heaven as she also did here on earth.
