Vivian Beulah Martin was born on July 7, 1917 at Lane, SD to John and Olga Martin. She attended Coal Springs School. Following her schooling she married Joe A. Hulm on March 16, 1940 in Bison, SD. They lived in various places in the Meadow area and in 1950 they moved to Glad Valley. To this union, seven children were born, Maynard, Arlen, Monte, Merle, Larry, Nadine and Marty.
Vivian enjoyed sewing, needlework and gardening. She was famous for her homemade bread and oatmeal cookies. She wasn’t a fan of sardine sandwiches because that’s what Joe would make her for lunch when she was out in the field running the tractor. Picture the following; Vivian used to help Joe put in fence posts and when it was too tough to dig, she hopped on his back to help break through the hard dry dirt.
She will be missed by family and friends alike. Vivian passed away on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at the Five Counties Nursing Home in Lemmon.
Grateful for having shared her life are her children, Maynard Hulm, Elizabeth, CO, Arlen (Betty) Hulm, Faith, SD, Merle (Cheryl) Hulm, Bison, SD, Larry (Ella) Hulm, Glad Valley, SD, Nadine (Hulm) Bellington, Brighton, CO and Marty Hulm, Bremerton, WA; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great great-grandchildren; brothers, Floyd (Rose) Martin, Meadow, SD, Dean Martin, Rapid City, SD, Alvin Martin, Rapid City, SD; two sisters, Eulala Lensegrav, Rapid City, SD and Marcella Norman, San Antonio, TX; two sisters-in-law, Edna Martin, Spearfish, SD and Lillian Martin, Bismarck, ND; and many nieces and nephews.
