Victoria will missed by so many. Her Iife was spent loving everyone she touched. She and Richard provided a roof and food for me when I had nothing, except a "deadbeat" husband! Their house was packed, so maybe a few grown children were back in the nest. But I wasn't turned away. There was never much, but it was always shared. She made the best chicken mole for me! A beautiful woman, inside and out! Strong in her faith, and strong is her love of and for family. Rest in Peace.

My Grandma was always so sweet and funny. I remember her always pinching my cheeks when I was little and saying "que chula". We would sit in her room watching novelas and eating mangos together. My Grandma will be dearly missed, but i know I will see her and my grandpa Richard in Heaven one day.

Beloved cousin and comadre ,always had me laughing. One thing I never forget was she use to tell my youngest daughter how pretty she was at 15 but she used to be the prettiest girl in our vario when she herself was 15. Gone but will never be forgotten. RIP comadre.

Words can not express how broken hearted I am mommy. I will always have you in my heart. Part of my soul was taken when you left but I know you wanted to be with Dad... (He told me you were ready of course you that). I will not be the same. And life without you and Dad will be different and lonely
I love you Mommy.
Your daughter and son-in-law

Victoria had a solid heart of gold. She took my mom into her home when mom became very ill. Without hesitation....

When I met Victoria, the Buentello's lived in Taylor! She did not take too kindly to her son going out with a 15 year old girl, ME, in 1973.. that all changed!
I remember visiting their home on Lizzie Street... oh, the tortillas!! One time I see a big object with a towel over it on the kitchen table, and I was curious, she told me in her limited English to look under the towel!
Well, of course I freaked out, it was a whole pig head! She always sprayed holy water on Cres left the house, for good reason.
As the years passed, I was no longer a daughter-in-law, I became her hija, which she expressed to me often.
I loved her! Boy she was a pistol when mad,!! But very loving, and soooo funny! I will miss her. Lots of memories.
RIP mi viejita por siempre.
