VIVIAN RHOBERTA HOUG was born on December 24, 1921 in Pipestone, Minnesota to William and Emily (Fish) Cheney. She was raised in Pipestone where she was baptized, confirmed and received her education. Vivian graduated from the Pipestone High School in 1939. On June 24, 1944, Vivian was united in marriage to Lowell Grimm at the Methodist Church in Luverne, Minnesota. To this union, three children were born, Judy, Joyce and Darrel. They made their home on a farm west of Jasper, where Vivian stayed home and raised the family and helped on the farm. Lowell died on October 4, 1966. Vivian continued to live on the farm for one year before moving into Jasper, Minnesota. On January 9, 1968, Vivian was united in marriage to Allen Houg at the Jasper Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jasper. After their marriage, they lived southeast of Jasper, on the Houg Family farm. They moved to various locations until finally settling in Ihlen, Minnesota. Vivian held several jobs until her retirement. On January 25, 2013, Vivian and Allen moved into the Good Samaritan Communities of Pipestone where she died on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the age of 94 years, 4 months and 14 days.
