It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Victoria Delgado, a loving and vibrant soul, who brought joy and kindness to all who knew her. Victoria’s journey in life began on March 23, 1939, in Wharton, TX, where she was born to the late Victorino Zepeda and Caterina Almaguer Zepeda.

Victoria lived a life filled with incredible experiences, embracing the beauty of the world through her love for travel. Her wanderlust took her to countless destinations, and she particularly relished exploring different cultures and cuisines. Whether it was soaking up the sun on picturesque beaches, exploring the historic streets of European cities, or embarking on exhilarating cruises, Victoria’s spirit for adventure was infectious.

Victoria’s infectious laughter and genuine smile could brighten even the darkest of days. Her legacy will forever live on in the hearts of her beloved family and friends.
