At the time of her passing, Victoria was in the process of pursuing her bachelor's degree in business administration and hoped to retire from Williams within the next 10 years.
Victoria met her "True Companion", William "Bill" Madura, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. They were married on July 14th, 2007, in Green River, Wyoming and combined their families of four beautiful children. Victoria dearly loved her three daughters and one son and made it her life's mission to ensure that they were continually surrounded with love and affection, and that they had everything any child might need or want, regardless of the personal sacrifice necessary to provide it. Victoria was the affectionate bond of the family, always putting the interests of Bill and the kids before her own.
Victoria had many interests which included anything outdoors; she loved camping with her family and friends, driving her Jeep with the top down, exploring the landscape while hiking, biking, running, paddle-boarding, off-roading, or taking photographs. She loved to travel, whether flying to cities around the world, or driving in her motorhome through the mountains to a country music festival, Victoria loved to listen to all kinds of music, often dancing the night away. When she was relaxing, Victoria was reading a book, watching baseball with husband, Bill, tending to her flowers, playing with her Bassett Hounds, our just enjoying her beautiful yard. She loved everything red; her Jeep, her shoes, her coat, her roses, and her favorite flowers were red Gerber Daisies. Victoria found comfort in her Faith, she often prayed, usually for the health, safety, and well-being of family and friends. Her greatest passion was taking care of other people. Victoria found a purpose volunteering with local charitable organizations, often participating in fund-raisers, serving at community functions, handing out food at local food drives, or helping her husband coach youth sports. Dearest to her heart were Victoria's five beautiful grandchildren. She lived to spend time with her grandchildren, reading, crafting, baking, feeding them, holding them, or even just changing their diapers. "Narny", as they called her was always playing on the floor or in the back yard with them, cooking with a grandbaby on her hip, chasing them around the house, helping them make a mess, or cleaning it up, attending their school functions, or taking them on adventures. Victoria was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who was cherished by many and will be missed by all who knew her.
