Victoria grew up in Carlsbad, and went to St. Francis Catholic School. Later she met and marred the love of her life, Ernesto McIntire, and married him on November 21, 1953. Victoria loved to go dancing, and she liked to go shopping, especially sales. Her Family was her priority, and instilled in them the importance of a hard work ethic. Her magic word was JOB, if you couldn’t find one, she would get you one. She lived in the kitchen, and was always ready to feed friends and family when they arrived. Victoria was an amazing cook, and could make those tortillas like no one else! She was a strong and loving mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
Victoria was preceded in death by her mother, Ramona Sauceda; husband, Ernesto McIntire; son, Eddy McIntire; grandson, Jarred McIntire; and brother, Gilbert Nava.
