Obituary for Vivian "Nan" Caldwell (Coleman)

A native and lifelong Salem resident, she was the daughter of the late Hillary H. and Florence Matz Coleman.

A loving mother and grandmother, she is survived by her children, Steven E. Hickson, Sr. and wife Angela, Connie Deel and husband Ron, June Shay, and Melanie Renee Boles and her husband Russell.
She is also survived by eight grandchildren, Eric Fleshman, Steve E. Hickson, Jr., Jeffrey Hickson, Aaron Gluth, Amanda Waldron, Nate Shay, Shane Boles and Chris Shay; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Phillip Coleman, and three sisters, Joyce Coleman, Sylvia Johnston and Elaine Hanes.
