Vivian McAdam was born 1924 on a farm in Ontario to Murray and Stella Biggar.
She grew up the oldest of six children. Vivian went into nursing and graduated in 1945 as a R.N., she then moved to Ladysmith from Ontario to work at her fi rst job at Ladysmith General Hospital. In 1946 she met and married Tom McAdam in 1947. Together they had five children: Pat (Richard), Susan, Mike (Stacey), Linda, and Colleen. Vivian retired from nursing after many years in Ladysmith. One of her many joys were her grandchildren: Sarah, James (Robyn), David, Amanda, Taylor, Brett, and Lauren. Also many nieces and nephews back East. Vivian is now at peace, she is probably camping now happily reunited with her husband.
