On April 17 at 1:17 P.M., Victoria Jo Murrock, age 45 chose to release the pain and suffering of Multiple Sclerosis and embrace the peace and calm of heaven. She fought the disease for 25 + years with much courage, stubborness and boldness. She is survived by her parents, Fred Murrock and Lillian Kelly, her husband , Jeff Stone, cousins, aunt and friends. Victoria was preceded in death by her grandparents, James and Lucille Kelly and Joe and Nedra Murrock. When one thinks of Victoria what comes to mind is the word passion. She was passionate about her love for family, work as an interior designer and preparing meals for friends and family. Victoria owned her own interior design business, “Exclusive Designs”. One of her trademarks was the use of bold colors. She liked colors to “pop”. She had high standards for herself and for those who worked with her to make the dreams of others come true. There was nothing more important to her than family. She especially loved her Aunt Leslie and Cousin Matthew, spending much time with them as a young child and teen. As a woman she tried to give back to them and always wanted the best for them. If you were fortunate enough to eat a meal prepared by Victoria, you knew it was prepared with a lot of love and oregano. You could also depend on taking some home. She would cook enough to feed the multitudes. Victoria will be sorely missed by her family and friends. There is no one like her. Her parents especially want to thank Rich and Rodna for loving Victoria through this journey. Also, deep appreciation goes to Hospice and the care provided by Erin and Melinda. And last a special thanks to Dr. Shaun Coffman who provided the medical care needed by Victoria from the very beginning of her diagnosis of MS. A celebration of life will be Saturday, April 21 at noon with Pastor Rich Blain officiating. Burial will follow at Cunningham Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 10:00 AM until time of service . On line condolences will be accepted at www.casdorphandcurry.com.

I love my second cousin Vicki so much. She would spend the night with me as a child and would be such fun. I remember our trip to Myrtle Beach with her Mom . I was also one of her teachers at Nitro High School. She always had a smile on her face and was such a caring person. I am so glad she is in a better place and her years of suffering are over. My loving condolences to Kelly and Fred.
