Vivian was born September 17, 1945 in Poteet Texas to George and Minnie Oden. She graduated from Jourdanton High School in 1963.

In 1980 she married Roy Bamberg, a fisheries biologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife and remained married to him until her death. During this time she attended college while working for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in Abilene and San Angelo. During this time she was also blessed with two granddaughters Alexandria and Kathryn Wester. They were very special to Vivian and the joy of her life.
