Victoria will be dancing away up in heaven with her parents and her siblings Gladys, Douglas, Marlene, Calvin Bill and Duane.

Victoria retired from cleaning and took great pride in taking care of our members. She also loved playing Bingo, playing cards and dice games with family and friends. She adored her grandchildren, as they brought joy to her heart. Victoria was the type who would give you her last anything even if she needed it more. Some might say she was stubborn, but she was also very kind and her smile would light a room. She will be dearly missed but we know she will be watching over all of us and most of all she will be pain free. Victoria was also a survivor of the Residential School and she is forever a strong beautiful soul.

Funeral service was held on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at Couchiching First Nation Multi-Use Facility at 11:00 a.m. Cremation to follow.

Arrangements entrusted to Northridge Funeral Home Ltd., Emo, Ontario.
