Vivian June (Brown) Forsman was born in Owasso, Oklahoma on June 17, 1920 to John L. Brown and Myrtle (Walker) Brown. She passed from this life on March 18, 2014 at the age of 93.

She was a graduate of Tulsa Central High School in 1938 and married Roy Eugene Forsman in 1941. From this union came two sons which she raised on her own after her divorce in 1948. Vivian, called "Memaw" by those close to her, was an independent woman. She raised her sons and lived independently for over 65 years. She enjoyed being around people and doing a variety of jobs. Several of the jobs she was involved in during her life were working for KVOO as a news secretary, working at McDonald Douglas as a "Rosie the Riveter", manager of a Dairy Queen, had a weekend flea market booth, "Viv's Glitz and Glamour" where she sold party wear and throughout her life worked at many retail jobs selling clothes. Vivian retired from her last of many jobs as a Walmart Greeter at the age of 90.

She is survived by her oldest son, Douglas Eugene Forsman and his wife, Judy, from Coweta, Ok; and her youngest son, Rudy Wayne Forsman and his wife, Linda, from Oologah, Ok. She had four granddaughters, Kendis Kelley and companion Don Griffith, from Broken Arrow, Ok; Kristen Kelley and husband W.D. from Coweta, Ok; Jessica Montalvo and husband Eric, from Iowa City, Iowa; and Jacki Morales and husband, Ryan, from Broken Arrow, Ok. Vivian was blessed with 3 great grandchildren- Katie Kelley from Broken, Arrow, Ok; Ryan Kelley and KayCee Kelley from Coweta, Oklahoma. Before her passing, she was looking forward to the birth of her second great grandson, Hudson Davis Morales in June.

"Memaw" loved and was loved by her family and will be missed by all. The family will be having a private family memorial and in lieu of flowers, they ask that contributions be made to the American Diabetes Association or the National Kidney Foundation.

With the death of "Memaw" we have lost the matriarch of our family. There will be a huge void in our lives that will be felt for many years to come. She was loved by all and will be deeply missed!
