She was born on Oct. 3, 1943 in San Salvador, El Salvador, to Mariano and Josefa Lobos. She married Carlos A. Pantoja on Sept. 16, 1962. He survives her after 52 years of marriage.
Victoria's parents, Mariano and Josefa Lobos, and three of her siblings, Roberto Lobos, Morena Martinez and Annabella Lopez, preceded her in death. Two of her siblings, Edgar Lobos and Gloria Quinteros, survive her.
Victoria is survived by her son, Carlos Pantoja, daughter Victoria Lindsey, six grandchildren, Joshua Pantoja-Lindsey, Dayton Lindsey, Brannon Pantoja, Abrianna Pantoja, Sophia Pantoja and Ashley Holmes, and her great-grandson Tony.
Victoria was raised in El Salvador and immigrated to the United States at the age of 15. Growing up, Victoria was incredibly close to her grandmother Victoria Carillo. It was a relationship that she would mirror in the future with her own grandchildren, who she adored.
She attended and graduated from Cathedral High School in San Francisco. Her teenage years in the City by the Bay required her to be fiercely independent, a classic quality of hers that was always proven by her resourcefulness. She went on to become a supervisor of Eligibility Services for the Social Services of San Mateo County, a job from which she retired.
For more than 20 years, Victoria dedicated herself to helping others, especially those less fortunate, to have a better quality of life. The same desire to help others was echoed in St. Raphael Ministries Inc., a Catholic ministry that she co-founded with husband Carlos in 1980. For the past three decades, Victoria helped to bring others closer to God, healed physical, spiritual and emotional wounds and developed a community.
Victoria was a unique character, a woman who was late to everything, fiercely opinionated, assertive and intelligent. She had a love for learning, reading and exploring. Her travels took her to Europe, Central America and across the United States, where she always found the most intriguing historical sites. She found pleasure in the little things, from a fine apple streusel to a cheesy romance novel.
Victoria's love for her family, and those closest to her, was as unique, powerful and radiant as the sun. She will be remembered for her quirkiness, her passion, her unmistakable sneezes and her immense and loving heart.
Victoria will be laid to rest at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Cemetery in Half Moon Bay, where she can be visited.
