Victoria's greatest blessing was her family. She was a very loving mom who cherished time with her children and loved ones. She always wanted to be a mom and have children. Our mother had a lot of special gifts. She was always there for us with a hug, conversations, laughter and of course teachings. We always felt her love, warmth and affection.
She gave comfort to others through her healing hands and intuitive methods. She was knowledgeable in holistic health practices through diet, natural remedies and reflexology. Her journey into holistic health practices was self-taught and started in the early 1980's before it was accepted as a normal health path. She helped and healed us and so many people with her skill and natural techniques.
She loved spending time at the ocean and in nature. Loved to cook, travel, swim, read and keep current in international and domestic affairs. Our mom was always willing to help others.
She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and shared her testimony of the gift of eternal life through her Savior Jesus Christ.
She will be missed dearly by her family and friends who all walked with her along the path during her life journey.
