Victoria "Vic" Adeline Gray, was a true fighter, tough as nails and loved furiously. She passed, December 4th, 2019 at the age of 84, with family close on hand. Dad has been by her side now for over 63 years, and their undying love is a true testament to what 'forever' really looks like. Mom's been sick for several years, defying the odds every day. Today she just decided that heaven needed a lil' warrior. Mom did the best with whatever life sent her way. Dad once said, "If it wasn't for your mother, I don't know how we would have made it for all those years". There was so many of us in the house but if anyone needed a place to stay or a warm dinner, mom would find room and would add another potato to the pot. Mom will be in heaven looking over dad, Ernest F. Gray, Sr. her children: Joe Beltram (Kathy), Vicki Hines (DD), Ernest (Terry), Paula, Charles (Cindy), Mark (Susan), Brian (Pam), Ross (Tina) and Ren McGaughy (Sean), and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Rest in peace mom, you've blessed us with a sense of family and love that will never be forgotten. And we'll never forget the Banquet chicken. The family would like to say thank you to all the Hospice care workers who help attend to mom, without there help and faith and guidance we would be lost!
An open house for family and friends will be at Dad and Mom's house starting at 2:00 pm December 7th.
