Vivian Flynn, 68, passed away peacefully on Tuesday May 7, 2019. Vivian was born on August 24, 1950 to the late Dillard and Opal (Abney) Patrick in Irvine, Kentucky.

 Vivian was born into a very large family on Cobb Hill in Estill County. She left her childhood home to attend Berea College where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in biology. Education was very important to Vivian and she instilled that in her children at a very young age. She was a voracious reader with an extensive library and was a wealth of knowledge.

 Vivian is survived by her loving husband, John Bishop Flynn; sons, Alexander Patrick Flynn and John Bishop Flynn II; brothers, Willard, James, Arnold, Larry and Greg Patrick; sister, Brenda Patrick, and grandchild, Remington Flynn. In addition to her parents, Vivian was preceded in death by brothers, William Ralph Patrick, Fred Patrick and sister, Marie Patrick.

I went to grade school at Cobhill with Vivian and her brother and sisters. I visited her home often as a child to play with her brothers, Willard, James, Arnold and William (Buzz). This information saddens me, and with a heavy heart and I reach out to the family. May God welcome her with open arms.

Vivian stayed at Our house when I was a little girl about 10. I have thought of her often down through the years and had just last week tried to find her on Ancestry. Thanks to Tracy Patrick for giving me information and for notifying me of her passing. She was so good to me, such a wonderful person. My heart goes out to her family. See you again Vivian.
