Vivian Hause Obituary

Vivian Elizabeth Hause passed on to Glory Monday, August 21, 2023. She lived 92 rewarding and full years leaving a legacy of love and faith for all those who were fortunate to cross her path.

            Vivian, was born November 1, 1930 to John W. and Vivian E. Willard. Along with her brother John and sister Ruth, the family lived on a farm just outside Brighton. She began her education at Independence School and upon completing eighth grade, went on to attend Brighton High School, graduating with the class of 1949.

            During her time at Independence, Viv became friends with Russell Hause. Later they became best friends and married on September 4, 1949. Vivian was a hard-working, loving and supportive wife for 67 years before Russell passed on in 2017. She was a fun and devoted mother, raising three daughters, Kathy, Gail and Susie on a dairy farm between Brighton and Ft. Lupton, CO. During that time, in addition to being a vital collaborator on the family farm, Vivian used her accounting skills while employed in a variety of local businesses, acquiring many lifelong friends along the way. Later, Viv expended her seemingly endless energy blessing her five grandchildren, who became her pride and joy—and then came six great-grandchildren to reap the benefits of her love.

            Vivian grew up with a strong faith in God and loved serving in church. She was a longtime member of the Methodist Church, both in Brighton and Ft. Lupton, singing in the choir, leading music in Sunday school and teaching vacation Bible school. Her great loves were Jesus, her family, friends and music. Her happy place was hosting a gathering of folks to study the Bible or share their musical talents praising the Lord in song. Vivian’s love of music led to a 25-year adventure with her good friend Bev Bucci, who took Viv along while she utilized her musical talents playing various instruments at a plethora of engagements, much to Vivian’s delight.

            Vivian was probably best known for her steadfast, unshakable trust in Jesus. She loved sharing the Gospel story, which saved her life, and which she knew without a doubt, would save others. In her later years, Vivian’s health caused her to experience debilitating pain and the inability to walk. She relied on Jesus as her constant companion and source of strength. Her reliance on God was evident in the seemingly ongoing conversation she carried on with Him. If anyone were to come to her with a sorrow, decision, dispute or joy to share, Viv would seamlessly start a conversation with the Lord, convinced He was always present and always engaged. Many would say Vivian’s outstanding attribute was that of a faithful prayer warrior. She will be sorely missed.

            Because of her intimate relationship with her Lord and Savior, Viv was known to say many times that her greatest joy was the assurance her family and friends were confident in the saving grace of Jesus. Her heartfelt desire was to be an ambassador of God’s love to everyone she met. Her life is a testimony to her success.

            Vivian is survived by her daughters Kathy (Bob) Klotzbach, Gail (John) Hill and Linda aka Susie (Chris) Albright; grandchildren Abby Albright, Hans (Lisa) Klotzbach, Liesl (Taylor) Baxter, Bethany Hill (Michael Browne) and Joanna Hill; five great-grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and cousins as well as the huge circle of  “family” she and Russell acquired over a lifetime of genuine love and care for others. Preceded in death by husband Russell and great grandson Owen Taylor Hill)
