Victoria Mary (Holcombe)
December 19, 1926 – April 16, 2008
Victoria Mary Storrie passed away peacefully on April 16, 2008. She was a loving and devoted wife, sister, mother, grandma, great-grandma and aunt. Victoria is survived by her loving husband of 61 years Dave, her sons David (Marlene) in Campbell River and Kevin in Courtenay, her brother Cliff (Shirley) Fletcher in the Comox Valley, grandchildren David (Laura), Teresa (Joerg), Lisa, Kathy, Eliza, James, Richard and Shawna, numerous great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Victoria was born and raised in Port Alberni where she met her husband in 1946. It was in Port Alberni and Comox that she raised her family when they were young before moving to Richmond. Vicky traveled the world with her husband Dave and moved wherever his work took them. Some of Vicky’s fondest memories are her times involved with Boy Scouts and Cubs with her children, and working on political campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s. Victoria moved with Dave to Hong Kong in 1987, then to Hawaii a few years later, and finally Guam before they returned to their home in Qualicum Beach in 1995. Vancouver Island was always home to Victoria and it was there that she lived out her final years, visiting with family and friends around Vancouver Island. Victoria was a loving, caring person and although she has physically left this earth, her memories will always remain with us in our minds and our love for her will forever be in our hearts. Special thanks to Dr. Bigelow and the staff of Trillium Lodge in Parksville. Visitation will be held on Thursday, April 24 from 11:00am-1:00pm at Piercy’s Funeral Home, 440 England Avenue, Courtenay.
