Victoria Vega Stamler was born October 30, 1970 in New York City, New York. She was an adoring mother to Eric and Ava, a loving wife to Gregg, and a devoted daughter to Victor and Carmen. Vicky was also a best friend to so many. As a school social worker, Vicky’s compassion helped countless students, families, and even her colleagues. She always took the time to listen to anyone who needed to talk.

Vicky was diagnosed with ULMS in May 2013. She always maintained a positive and courageous attitude, and continued to put others first, even while she was in pain battling this horrible disease. She loved her job and continued to work until two months before she passed. Vicky always had a smile on her face and an infectious laugh. She was an amazing woman who lived life to its fullest and is a true inspiration to all.

Vicky passed away on May 17, 2015. Words cannot adequately express how greatly she will be missed by the many who loved her.
