Vivian N. Breitbach
October 31, 1924 - February 3, 2011
Vivian N. Breitbach, age 86, of Powder Springs, passed away on Thursday, February 3, 2011.
Born to Permie and Rhoda Nasby on October 31, 1924 in Williston, North Dakota, Vivian was raised on a Montana farm. At an early age, she had a passion for reading that helped her graduate from high school two years early. After completing her first year of college, Vivian sought and received special permission from the state school board to teach at the age of seventeen during World War II. This calling took her far away from the home that she knew, but allowed her to influence so many.
On April 10, 1948, Vivian and Bob Breitbach began their life long journey together as a married couple. They raised seven children while operating a family owned construction company, Breitbach Construction. They became members of St. John Vianny in Powder Springs together. After Bob's passing in 2008, Vivian spent her remaining years at Powder Springs Nursing Home.
Vivian is preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Bob Breitbach; father, Permie Nasby; and mother, Rhoda Vik. She is survived by her sons, Jerry Breitbach of Powder Springs, Bruce and wife Jeanne of Powder Springs, Joe and wife Cheryl of Powder Springs, and Brad and wife Susan of Marietta; daughters, Linda of Pulaski, Tennessee, Nina and husband Howard Waller of Dallas, and Dana Rorvik of Dallas; sister Delores Schillinger of Billings, Montana; 10 grandchildren: Steven Breitbach, Kyle Breitbach, Theresa Breitbach, Joey Breitbach, Chris Breitbach, James Rorvik, Aaron Waller, Missy Waller, Sarah Breitbach, and Ben Breitbach; and 6 great-grandchildren: MaKayla Waller, Grant Waller, Sidney Rorvik, Brayden Rorvik, and Kaitlyn Breitbach, and Mason Wilbur.
The family will receive friends 3:00pm-4:30pm Sunday, February 6, 2011 at Gene Davis-White Columns Funeral Chapel in Mableton with a Rosary from 4:30pm-5:00pm. A memorial service will be held at 11:00am Monday, February 7, 2011 at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Lithia Springs with Father Gregory Hartnayer.
