Victoria Tauber

February 8, 1931 - April 13, 2017


It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Victoria (Vicky), who passed away peacefully at the age of 86. Vicky was predeceased by her husband of 41 years Michael, mother Pearl and father Antonio Mauro. She has left behind her children Michael (Cathy), Diane, Darlene (Derek), Anthony (Trish), David (Gladys), Richard (Tracy) and AnneMichelle, her sister Louise, her brother-in-law Jim (Mary), many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the Langley clan (her second family), and close friends. Vicky led a full and varied life. As a young bride, she left her hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, to live in a log cabin her husband built for them in the mining town of Copper Mountain, near Princeton, BC, where they had their first child, Michael. They returned to Winnipeg for a few years and had three more children: Diane, Darlene and Tony. Gathering up her young family, Vicky took the train to join her husband in wet and wild Prince Rupert, BC, where they had three more children: David, Richard and Annie. In Prince Rupert, besides raising her family, she was a nurse (LPN) at the local hospital for over 30 years, a dispatcher for Reliable Taxi, and also worked at Carlton Cards. One of her favourite pastimes was playing bingo. She also became a well-known and liked bingo caller. After her husband passed away, Vicky moved to Cultus Lake, BC, to live with her close friends, Liz and Reg Langley, and was a well-loved member of their family. Two years ago, she moved to Powell River to be close to her sons Michael and David. Vicky had a unique way of making everyone she met feel welcome and comfortable. Her kindness, wit, laughter and smile will never be forgotten. The family would like to thank Dr. Thwainey and the doctors and nurses at Powell River General Hospital. Vicky was very grateful for your kindness, support and professionalism and enjoyed sharing her nursing stories. A celebration of Vicky’s life will be held from 1-4 pm on Tuesday, May 16, at 7227 Georgia Crescent in Powell River. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Powell River Hospital Foundation or The Red Cross Loan Cupboard.
