Vivian was born July 22, 1920 to William and Esther (Mayer) Bettenberg in St. Cloud. She married her sweetheart, Emil Kelm, Jr. on February 14, 1939 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Sauk Rapids. She walked strongly in her faith and was a proud member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Sauk Rapids. She cared for her family and was proud to care for the veterans at the St. Cloud VA Hospital, volunteering 45,000 hours through the American Legion Auxiliary #254. Vivian was independent, giving, social, and loved to dance. Summers were happily spent at their cottage on the river, spending time with family every weekend.

Vivian is survived by her children, Chet (Sherry) of Longville, Bill (Mary) of Sauk Rapids, Margo (LeRoy) Davidson of Sauk Rapids, Debbie (Gary) Barney of Sauk Rapids; 13 grandchildren, 39 great grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren and greatly anticipated the birth of two more little additions. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Emil; daughter, Kathleen Coborn; granddaughter, Cara Coborn; grandson, Eric Kelm; siblings, Charles and William Bettenberg, and Virginia Pikus.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Country Manor Foundation.
