Obituary's Biography:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Victoria Anna Piela on July 29, 2023. While waiting at a crosswalk, she was fatally struck by a vehicle.

Victoria is remembered for her bubbly personality, beaming smile, radiant energy and contagious laughter. Among friends, she is Vicky; known for her genuine kindness, her unwavering support and her unique ability to make everyone feel special. Whether it was a three-hour phone call or a shared bag of sour gummy candy, Vicky was always ready to put her life on pause for others. 

To her family, she is Wikusia; an overly-organized, constantly-snacking, always-moving and fiercely-loving young adult, just beginning the adventure of life. She loved to play, whether during a family game night, on the ground with her niece and nephew, or hitting a volleyball around in the street. The sounds of her laughter will forever echo in the hearts of her family. 

Victoria was passionate about running, being outside, hiking in the mountains, and spending time with loved ones. She was just a few weeks away from starting college and had set her sights on a career that encourages others to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Victoria will be missed in ways words cannot express. She is survived by her Mom and Dad, brother and family, sister and all four grandparents. The family welcomes the community to celebrate Victoria’s memory at the Central Park Performance Pavilion on Friday, August 4th at 4PM. 

Śpieszmy się kochać ludzi tak szybko odchodzą

i ci co nie odchodzą nie zawsze powrócą

i nigdy nie wiadomo mówiac o miłosci

czy pierwsza jest ostatnią czy ostatnia pierwszą

-ks. Jan Twardowski

  1. The loss of this lovely young lady is so painful to think about. She had her whole life ahead of her. My heart and prayers are with the family and friends of Vicky. May you find peace and comfort in the memories of their loved one. She was with you for too little time, and I know you will miss her for the rest of your days.

  2. Vicky was a beautiful girl. The world is a better place because she was in it. Vicky lived each day with happiness, grace, and a brilliant smile which always made my day when I saw her at Central. Deepest condolences from the Spoden family to the Piela family. Colleen, John, Connor & Rory

  3. My thoughts and Prayers are with Vicky’s family, friends and all those she touched.
    Unthinkable tragedy.

  4. The get-together in the park was a beautiful tribute to Vicky. From all the comments both public and private, it is clear that even though her life was relatively short, she brought more joy into the lives of others than many people do in an entire normal lifetime. What a remarkable young woman! And even though Vicky will be missed in this world, she is a welcome and joyful addition to heaven.

  5. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
    Though we cannot possibly understand what you’re going through, we wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you during this extremely sad time. Unfortunately we didn’t know Vicky that well, but it sounds like she was a brilliant light in this world and a beautiful soul in and out. We’ll sure she’ll be missed by all the people whose lives she touched.
    Please accept our deepest sympathy, love and hugs
    The Volkhart Family

  6. Our family has been thinking about Vicky ever since we heard the news. My daughter was a freshman last year and remembers Vicky being so warm towards her, always smiling and always positive. My daughter is very shy and quiet and a bit anxious, but Vicky made her feel accepted and comfortable. She made an impact on my daughters life and I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. Thinking of you all… Sharon & Kiylee Thoke (and family)
