Boren, Vivian M.

October 5, 1950 — January 24, 2022

Vivian Marie Boren, age 71, passed away January 24, 2022. She was born in Borger, Texas to Gordon and Marcia Tietz on October 5, 1950.

She married William “Bill” Boren on June 6, 1970, and together they raised 4 children.

Vivian served alongside her husband for over four decades in a variety of ministries. Her ministry influence was felt at South Moline Baptist Church in Moline, IL; South Shaver Baptist Church in Houston, TX; Blue Ridge Baptist Temple in Kansas City, MO; CrossPointe Baptist in Pleasant Hill, MO and concluded at Manna Fellowship in Pleasant Hill, MO. She had an impact on many from her time as a youth pastor’s wife to a senior pastor’s wife...She loved people! She was always willing to serve and did not hesitate to go where the Lord directed.

Vivian loved to play the piano and sing. She loved Southern Gospel Music and listened to it until she went to heaven. She loved anything to do with the USA and her favorite song was the “Star Spangled Banner.” She was a dedicated wife who supported, encouraged and loved her husband for 51 years, as well as a mother who loved her four kids and bragged about her nine grandkids.

Vivian was faithful, fun loving and made an imprint on those around her. As a youth pastor’s wife, she “was up for anything”....banquets, bus rides, church camps, mission trips and crazy challenges. The guys put her through the ringer and the girls loved her. As a pastor’s wife, she continued that effect; always smiling, caring, greeting, making people feel welcome and leading others to Christ. Vivian never met a stranger and if she was your friend, you could count on her for anything.

Vivian was feisty and wasn’t afraid to express her opinion or thoughts no matter if you agreed or not. She was also fierce as she defended her faith, her family and her “Billy.”

During the time Vivian was in Season Long Term Care, the staff said, “She lights up this place!!” She was walking, talking, singing and encouraging the other residents. Bill referred to her as “a light in a dark place.” She replied, “I’m not sure that I want to be that light!” Another example of her feistiness!

As difficult as it was to say goodbye, we are rejoicing that she is no longer suffering with a mind and body that were failing her. We are also rejoicing that she is completely healed and in the presence of her Savior, reunited with those who have gone before her, enjoying Gram’s homemade dumplings and all the Dr. Pepper her heart desires!

Until we sing together again, remember...”We love you more!”

Vivian is preceded in death by her parents, Gordon & Marcia Tietz, her brother, Marion Tietz, and her sister, Beverly Tietz. She leaves behind her husband, Bill Boren, and their 4 children; two daughters and their husbands, Jennifer & Brian Smith (Omaha, NE) and Janie & Shawn Williams (Raymore, MO); two sons and their wives, Phil & Jennifer Boren (Chesapeake, VA) and Earl & Kelly Boren (Raymore, MO). She also leaves behind 9 grandchildren: Chloe, Cooper & Colton Smith, Joseph & Sydney Williams, Kailey (Shea) Anderson & Cohen Boren, and Landon & Ayden Boren.

My heart is breaking for you, Bill, Jennifer, Janie, Phil and Earl and all those precious grand children. Vivian had such a dynamic personality, she was loved by everyone. I could sit and listen to her play the piano and sing, for hours. I can only imagine the great reunion with her family in Heaven. May God bless each one of you with comfort and peace in the coming days. I love you, please don't forget me, I feel like family.

Vivian was such a wonderful person. Her smile lit up a room and was a good listener. She was taken much to soon but I know she is in the presence of her heavenly Father and rejoicing with the angels.

Vivian was my neighbor in Raymore, I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was always joyful and happy and you just felt good around her, she just made you smile. I am so sorry for her loss but know she is rejoycing in the arms of her Savior, happy and without pain.

Fearless and the family, I am praying for you all. It hurts to know that Mrs. B is gone, but she was always a light wherever she was. From all the activities to all of the bus trips we made while in the youth at BRBT. I also remember the conversations with Mrs. B on many a long bus trip and how she was always able to make them seem shorter, From Mexico to Colorado and beyond. One day we will see each other again.

Carla Campbell

Heaven rejoices and the streets are filled with music. Heard above it all is Vivian’s song of praise to her Savior. We grieve not for her because she is whole again. We grieve with you, Bill, and all the family and friends left behind because she left a void. She was a gigantic presence wherever she went. Sending heartfelt love today and prayers for God’s peace to fill you. 🙏🏻
