Born May 30, 1918 in Enchant, Alberta, Canada, May Vivian Mollerud had a sad start to her first couple years of life. Shortly after she was born, her mother became very ill and contracted the flu during the war years which then turned into TB. When she was one year old, they brought her mother back to the United States where she spent some time in a sanitarium. Her dad had a cottage built for her so she could be at home and enjoy the fresh air. Vivian lost her mother when she was just 22 months old. It was also during this time that Vivian suffered with a severe case of the measles and other sicknesses. Her grandmother tried to help out with Vivian and her three other siblings, but she had a large family of her own and it was just too much for her to handle..For more on Vivian Opsal please buy a copy of the Sisseton Courier on news stand now..
