Victoria Anne Palmer, age 71, of Taylor, passed away on the evening of Friday, Aug 27, at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton after a lengthy and courageous fight against chronic pain and illness. Victoria was born on May 24, 1950, in Ontario, Canada, to the late William Mark and Janis Marie (Hendrick) Palmer. She lived most of her early life in North Tonawanda in Western New York. Victoria was kind, warm, compassionate, and loving. She treated every person she encountered as if they were of great value and left them feeling like they truly mattered. It was not uncommon for her to come home, grab an umbrella, and run out to find the person she had seen walking in the rain and offer them a ride.
She will be remembered for her wicked sense of humor, her poise and presence, her love of home and those close to her, and for being so cool, she could start a jukebox with a bump of the hip.
Victoria is survived by her beloved partner of 31 years, Raymond Fotta, her children Faith Victoria Palmer of Rhinebeck, NY, Lauren Elizabeth Moody of Scranton, Kahlin Amber Murphy of Columbus, OH, Terrin Francis Kelly of Taylor, step-children Chris (Roxon) Fotta of Nanticoke, Margo (Joseph) Fotta-Reinhart of Souderton, Katie (Brad) Casey of Scranton, grandchildren Leandra Ingiaimo and Tessa Gregorski both of Scranton, many nephews and nieces, siblings Susan Seasholtz of St. Augustine, Fl, Randy (Susan) Palmer of Wilkes-Barre, Robert Palmer of Scranton, extended family members Betsy (Bruce) Ramsay of Frederick, MD and best friend Antoinette “Toni” Granko of Taylor.
Victoria was predeceased by a brother Roger A. Mehner and nephew Clifton Palmer.
A celebration of Victoria’s life and blessing service is scheduled for Saturday at noon at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., at 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Family and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 10:00 AM until services at the funeral home.
