It is with great sadness that the family of Victoria Sype announce her passing on Friday, July 31, 2020. She was born on 29 September 1987 to Carlos and Patricia Romero of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She leaves behind her loving husband, Peter Sype, dearest son, Hunter Sype, and was preceded by the death of her brother, Juan Carlos Romero.
Victoria graduated from Saint Pius X High School in 2005 and pursued a Master’s Degree in Accounting from the School of Anderson of the University of New Mexico in December 2009. Once she completed her master’s program, Victoria began working as an Auditor for the United States Forest Service (USFS) from January 2011 until her passing.
Victoria was extremely passionate about art in all forms and loved to share that joy to her friends and family by creating works of art for holidays, birthdays, and special occasions. Victoria was passionate about life and enthusiastic about experiencing all the wonders and joys that life had to offer by creating memories with the ones she loved and cared for. Victoria lived solely to experience new and exciting things and created a world of her own. When traveling she loved being near the ocean, feeling the cool breeze on her skin, and waves through her fingertips. There she was most at peace.
Victoria’s proclaimed purpose on earth was to bring light and joy to those she cared about most. She loved making others happy and her compassion and will were unfounded. Coupled with the brightest smile and most infectious laugh, Victoria was willing to take on the world and offered friendship and assistance to anyone in need. She had a heart gold and would welcome anyone into her life with open arms and a smile. Victoria was truly a gem and will be greatly missed by this world.
An intimate ceremony celebrating Victoria’s life and legacy was held on Saturday, August 15, 2020 at Saint Pius X High School at 12:00 p.m. with a ceremonial blessing and balloon launch.
Victoria’s official funeral gathering will be at Brew Lab 101 on Sunday, September 27, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at 3301 Southern Blvd SE, Rio Rancho, NM 87124. Victoria’s wish was to gather, tell stories, and celebrate her life. Social distancing and safety precautions will be observed.
