I visited Victoria at Wilshire as a Eucharistic Minister on behalf of Our Lady of the Presentation Church. I really enjoyed talking to Victoria about her experiences in Poland and Germany during the war. Her story was so inspiring to me. My prayers are with your family. May Victoria rest in peace.

What an extraordinary woman. Faced with incredible challenges, her dignity and perseverance pulled her through difficult and life altering times. I will never forget the time I spent with Victoria and her daughter Mary learning about her life. My sympathies to you. ~Laura Robertson
