Vivian L Skrdlant



Vivian Loene (McCabe) Skrdlant, beloved daughter of Lowell and Naomi (Ritter) McCabe, was born October 8, 1928 in Norton County, Kansas, and left this earthly life on March 7, 2018 at the Andbe Home in Norton, Kansas, at the age of 89.

Vivian grew up on the family farm nine miles west of Norton. She attended Davis country school #111, grades first through eighth. She then attended Norton Community High School and graduated with the class of 1946. She enjoyed running and winning the county three legged and sack races as a child.

She was united in marriage to Emil Skrdlant on November 14, 1948 in Norton, Kansas. To this union four wonderful sons were born: Walter, Roy, Darrell, and Gary.

After Vivian's marriage, she lived on a farm north of Norton, spending the first year even without electricity. She was a farm wife who also had a garden, raised chickens, and sold eggs to most of the restaurants in Norton. She greatly enjoyed crocheting and doing many handcrafts. She crocheted Afghans, for all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren except for the last ones when her health gave out. She was a member of the Sunshine Club, and she and Emil belonged to the Norton Squarenaders Square Dance Club. She enjoyed life, traveling coast to coast, and always worried about animals that had to stay outside in the heat or cold. Her greatest joy in life was her family and friends, and spending time with them. She enjoyed being a mother and grandmother. Emil and Vivian moved into Norton in 1983. Emil passed away in 1993. Vivian lived by herself until 2014, when she moved to Whispering Pines, and later to the Andbe Home. She was a member of the Norton Christian Church.
