McParland yard supervisor
Martin Victoria 001
Victoria Marie Martin, 34, entered into rest on May 17, 2010 in Manteca, California, surrounded by her beloved family. She was born on May 10, 1976 in Santa Clara, California, to Mr. and Mrs. Frank and Virginia Dutra of Manteca. Victoria joins her father Mr. Frank Dutra Sr. in heaven who passed away just 12 hours after her death.

 Mrs. Martin is survived by her loving husband of 18 years Gerald Martin III of Manteca. She adored her two beautiful children Gerald E. Martin IV and Delicia Marie Martin, both of Manteca. She also leaves behind her beloved mother Virginia Dutra of Manteca, her siblings Shiloh Dutra of Manteca, Frank John Dutra of Manteca, Kathleen Gomez of AZ., and Judy Paulsey of WA. In addition, Victoria is survived by her mother-in-law and Father-in-Law Gerald E. Martin II and Diana Martin, both of Manteca, as well as her sister-in-law Jenny Martin of Manteca. She was an amazing aunt to many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

 Victoria was a yard supervisor at McParland Annex for over 5 years. Growing up, Victoria attended Sequoia Elementary School, Lathrop Elementary, and Lincoln Elementary and eventually going on to attend Manteca High School. She was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. She loved music and never missed a great karaoke night. She enjoyed family gatherings as she cherished each and every moment she spent with her children, siblings, parents and husband as well as extended family. Victoria was always full of life constantly making others smile. She was an avid 49er fan always cheering on her team along with her dad bragging about the latest tackle or triumph. Victoria was a fantastic mother always putting her children first. Family was the most important to her as she treasured the little things in life. She was never a selfish person, always giving what she could and never expecting anything in return. She was her father’s princess as he was her knight and shining armor. Her husband “Jay” was her true love as they devoted every waking moment to each other; their bond was like no other. She always wanted the best things in life for her two children always making sure every need was met; she loved them deeply. Victoria will be missed for her beautiful smile, her strength, and for her angelic spirit.
