She was member of Saint Joseph’s Church where she was a C.C.D. teacher, active in the Women’s League and participated in the church picnics and Christmas bazaars.

Victoria enjoyed the simple pleasures in life; talking on the phone daily with her sister and others, spending relaxing moments just riding with her late husband and her dogs. Vicky had the most amazing ability to truly reach people in such a spiritual and positive way. She truly was an angel on earth, able to give and inspire kindness for all human kind. Her moto was uncomplicated, yet elate most. Vicky knew that good existed in everyone, even if it’s harder to see. By showing appreciation and acknowledgment, they will always pay it forward to those around them.

Victoria’s husband of 45 years, H. Francis Nadeau died in 2001. She leaves two sisters, Catherine D. Prostak and Jane Popham both of Worcester; she also is survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her husband, she is predeceased by a brother, John S. Opacki of Shrewsbury.
