Vivian Marion (Bachmann) Ortloff was born Dec. 3, 1932, in Arlington, the daughter of Herman and Alma (Voight) Bachmann. She was baptized as an infant on Dec. 18, 1932, by the Rev. R. Heidmann, and confirmed in her faith as a youth by the Rev. John G. Bradtke, both at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Arlington. She received her education by attending District 15 country school in Arlington Township, St. Paul’s Lutheran Parochial School in Arlington, and graduated with the Arlington High School class of 1950.
 
On Dec. 23, 1953, she was united in marriage to Ronald Ortloff by the Rev. John G. Bradtke at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church parsonage in Arlington.
