Victoria was pre-deceased by her mother, father and siblings (Cecil Darrigo and Daniel Griffin).
Tori will be remembered as:
A person who is kind, caring, put others first, has a high moral character, strong belief in God that she shared whole heartedly with others, somebody who is a great listener and fun to be around, somebody who shares her wisdom freely and always has a great story to tell about the past. Things that we will miss the most about her are: her humble and warm spirit, her beautiful smile and piercing blue eyes, and her ability to make everybody feel welcome and loved around her.
Tori has moved quite a bit in her life and lived in a several beautiful places, however one of her favorite places was Mckinleyville, CA. She talked fondly of her time there, and it a place that she loved to walk on the beach and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
