Victoria Louise LampOctober 2, 1985 ~ November 25, 2017 (age 32)
LAMP, Victoria Louise (Age 32)
Victoria was born October 2, 1985 in Spokane, the daughter of John E. Lamp of Liberty Lake and Louise M. Lamp of Spokane. She passed away on November 25, 2017, from complications, due to epilepsy. Victoria graduated from Ferris high School in 2004, and received her Bachelor of Arts (Cultural Studies) from The Evergreen College in 2015. Victoria had the best time of her life studying and being with her college friends. She also recently enjoyed working with all of her co-workers at Rosauers in Browne’s Addition.
Victoria loved the outdoors and was an avid conservationist. She cherished and sought to protect all of the living things on Earth, particularly animals and children. She volunteered for and supported numerous philanthropic organizations, including SpokAnimal, Lands Counsel, Scraps and the Sierra Club.
Victoria had a deep love for Native American culture. She connected with Kateri Tekakwitha from a very early age. Saint Kateri is the patron saint of ecology and environmental issues.
Victoria had a zest for life and dreamed of things that could be and never settled for what was. She met every challenge in her path with bravery, dignity and a wicked sense of humor. She loved a lively political discussion and had a very strong sense of social justice.
Victoria loved to travel and see the world. In 2000 she visited Lourdes, France with her father and ventured to Oregon, Texas, California, Hawaii, Louisiana, Florida, Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland and Scotland. She also traveled to New Zealand and Australia with her college classmates.
Earlier in her life, Victoria appreciated the help she received from the images program, especially from Roxanne Coast. She met her friend, John Lemus, there as well. She was also very appreciative of the counsel and support she received from Rhonda Kelsch, Rebeckah Giangreco, (whose treatments made a big difference in her life). She would also want to thank: Mike and Tammy “for keeping her looking great”, Dr. Tim Powell and staff for their phenomenal thoughtfulness and caring, Dr. Ojeman, for being her Saint on earth. There are many more people to thank, too numerous to mention here but please know all of you touched Victoria’s life in many ways.
Victoria was devoted to her family, especially her sister, Amanda, Amanda’s dog, Sage and her beloved niece, Avery.
Victoria’s family has suffered a great loss and her passing will leave a hole in the hearts of everyone who knew her. She was an inspiration to all and will never be forgotten. We all pray that her sweet soul is finally at peace in the arms of our loving God.
