Victoria was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Edward Schwartz; brothers Joseph and Francis (Sonny) Schwartz; sisters Caroline Ruda and Dorothy Liput.
Mom was truly a special person, she shared her talent for crafts, cooking, planning, and executing events. Throughout her many dedicated years in service to organizations that she served as VFW District 11 Ladies Auxiliary President, as President of the Wyoming VFW Ladies Auxiliary. She worked tirelessly for a good cause. It is only appropriate that God chose Memorial Day to take mom’s soul because every Memorial Day she would rise at dawn and spend her entire day at the VFW cooking and serving all who were honored veterans. Members would always look forward to Vicky’s piggies, roast beef, perogies, and cole slaw.
She was very active in the former St. Francis Church, Miners-Mills, presiding as president of the altar and rosary society, and bazaar chairman for numerous years. She served as Queen of the Tequila Rose Chapter of the Red Hatters, President of John Heinz Womens’ Auxiliary, Member of the JLW Mountain Laurel Lions and President, and Wyoming Eagles Womens’ Auxiliary.
Victoria, our mom, touched many people’s hearts with her kindness and tireless dedication. She is now at peace, able to dance, and sing once again.
