Annie Cayla Eagle Vivanco was born June 4, 1983, at Hazen, North Dakota, to Gwenneth Bearstail Hostler and Virgil S. Eagle. Pumpkin Blossom Blooming (Koo-Ohserehe) was a member of the Knife Clan and was a baby Knife.
Annie attended Twin Buttes Elementary and Halliday High School, eventually finishing at the Oelrich High School in South Dakota in 1999. She furthered her education with the University of Mary through the Fort Berthold Community College, studying Early Childhood Development and Special Education. Annie married Joel Vivanco on January 27, 2012, and they settled in New Town where she was able to work for the Boys & Girls Club and the children she adored.
Despite moving to several places in her lifetime, Annie always called Twin Buttes her home. Her one and only favorite team was the Oakland Raiders. Otherwise, to cover her lack of interest and knowledge about anything else athletic, when asked, she covered everything with a “Go sports!”
Anyone who had the privilege of meeting and knowing Annie will remember her love of life, the twinkle in her eyes, and her forever smiles. She never failed to brighten any room she entered and raise the spirits of all in her presence. Her caring and happy heart was, and will eternally be, the Creator’s beautiful blessing to us all. We, her family, cannot even begin to name, let alone know, of all her friends, each loved in her own special way, let alone all of the people whose lives she touched.
Although Annie had no children of her own, she had a mother’s love for all children, but especially her nieces and nephews, Samantha Dawn (Pancakes) Damian, Evan Chance Dylan, Landon Hugh and Mia Jaymes (Queenie Bear) Baker, Bailey Haataja, Laikyn Belle (Baby Bell) Kuhlman, Hayden (Hunny Bunny) Wells, Myles, Cruz, Garrett, Jaelee, and Kylee Young Wolf. Along with all the other children of relatives and friends that she greeted with a smile and open arms, she loved each and every one of the children she spent her days with at the Boys & Girls Club. She also loved animals and was famous for dragging her outlaw dog, Ruppert, with her everywhere.
Annie, on the wings of the angels, has gone on her journey to rest in the loving arms of her maternal grandparents Mirriam Bull and Clyde Bearstail (KIA), her paternal grandparents, Winnie and Clay Smith, adopted paternal grandparents, Jim and Annie Crowsheart Eagle, and her Godfather, Dusty Starr, as well as many close cousins and nephews.
Annie leaves countless and immeasurable beautiful memories with her mom and dad, Gwenneth Hostler and Virgil S. Eagle; her stepdad, Leroy Crow Flies High; her sisters, Marie (James) Baker, Chelsea (Mike) Kuhlmann, Sarah Eagle, Stacey Schulz, Steff (Doug) Haataja, Roxanne Schultz, and Kerry Wilson; her brothers, Sannie Hostler and Vincent (Amy) Hostler; her aunties, Loretta Entze, Colleen Wilson, Juanita Snow, Judy Fredericks, Kathy Bearstail Garza, Debra Malnouri; her uncle, Maynard Bear; many, many other aunts and uncles too numerous to name; and her Godmother, Bessie Starr. Annie counted among her family, her adopted sisters, Karissa Diaz-Corral, Lisa Starr Furr, Fawnah Muma, and Rikki Gillette.
