Vivian Kay Harvey

Vivian Kay Harvey born January 12, 1948, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Kenneth Kirk and Lyla Agnes Snyder Johnson, returned to her Father in Heaven on November 19, 2023, in Tooele, Utah.  She passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family.

Vivian was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. She was a woman of insurmountable strength and dignity.  Vivacious, witty, and quick with a laugh or joke, she had a wonderful sense of humor. Her family was her source of joy and pride. She was a faithful daughter of God and served in many callings as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  She was a woman of many unique and wonderful talents and used them to bless her friends and family.  You could count yourself lucky if you got one of her homemade Christmas Candy Cane cinnamon rolls, suckers, or bottled fruit. She was also a talented seamstress, painter, and healer. She could cure almost anything with one of her special hugs and words of encouragement. She always expected the best in every situation and from every person.  She was spry and athletic. She enjoyed walks with her great-granddaughters, riding scooters with her grandchildren and spending time in her flower gardens. Her daughters were her angel girls and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the lights in her life.

She was a graduate of Granite High School. She married her sweetheart, Ronald Paul Webb in 1966. Later widowed in 1973.  She married Leslie LeRoy Braithwaite; later divorced. Married Clifford Harvey, later widowed.

She is preceded in death by her parents, sister Edna, husbands, brother-in-law Michael Baca, and sisters-in-law Marna Johnson and Terrie Saunders. She is survived by her siblings Cleo (Arthur) Anderson, Bruce Kirk Johnson, Nyla (Ernest) Cook, Michael Johnson, children Ronda (Steve) Myer, Jodie (Clay) Erickson, Rebecca (Adam) Paulson, Leslee (Bob) Smith. Grandchildren Kearsta (Jeff) Washburn, Mark (Kellie) Myer,

Trevor (Desiree) Erikson, Travis Erickson and Dallas Harrison, Tyler (Alejandra) Paulson, Thomas (Bridget) Paulson, Shay (Brodey) Sullivan, Wylee Staples, Wyatt Smith, Kashlee Smith, great-grandchildren Titan, Ryder, Mack, Jameson, Piper, Madilynn, Braxton, Tatum, and Braylon. Many nieces and nephews to whom she was affectionately known as Aunt Viv.

Services will be held Saturday, November 25, 2023, at the LDS ward house at 192 West 200 South, Tooele, Utah at 11 am. There will not be a visitation. In lieu of flowers, the family requests those who wish to pay respects to do a random act of kindness in honor of her memory and the way she lived her life in service to others.  You can share your acts and condolences

Special thanks to Canyon Home Care and Hospice for their compassionate care, to Kearsta Washburn FNP-C, ACHPN for making it possible for us to bring our mom home and spend precious time with her, and to her ward members and her many wonderful friends and neighbors who she loved like a second family.

    Aunt Viv is so amazing and a beautiful soul. She saved me from myself and I will always be grateful for the time all my cousins let me share in her life and yours. She taught me kindness toward others is the key toward a happy life even if it meant picking up strangers from the side of the road. I love all of you and will keep you in my heart always. Belinda”

    Sis, I miss you, I know this is not the way we planned things, but I hope you know how fantastic a person you are. There isn’t s day that goes by that my heart doesn’t hurt, I know this is not what you want to hear, you are my Rock and the Rock for so many, I am working on my promises, they are not an easy task. I will never be half the person you are. I know your Angels miss you too, as does the rest of us. You held fast Sis. Through think and even thicker. I send my hopes and prayers and look forward to seeing each other again. Xoxoxoxo
