Obituary: Victoria "Vickie" (Prince) Rojo - Class of 1967

MADISON - Victoria "Vickie" (Prince) Rojo [age 67], loving mother of three, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, July 16, 2016, at Karmenta Nursing Home. She was born in Rice Lake, Wis., on Aug. 5, 1948, the daughter of Amy (Scherz) Shohet and Stacer Prince. She was a lifetime resident of Madison, a 1967 graduate of Madison Central High School and she attended Edgewood College. Vickie worked in nursing and health insurance throughout her life, retiring from WPS after 10 years. She was a selfless woman who shared her love of baking and cooking with those in need, offering a home cooked meal, a shoulder to cry on or a filled Christmas stocking. Always there for others, her children and grandchildren were her focus and she worked hard to support them. She will be sorely missed. Vickie is survived by her mother, Amy; her siblings, Robert (Lori) Prince, Lena Shohet and Zev (Neelika) Shohet; her daughters, Cecilia, Selina and Angelica Rojo; and seven grandchildren, Kiya, Dominic, Dezmen, Victoria, Jason, Christopher and Caden. She was preceded in death by her father, Stacer Prince; and brother, William Prince. Respects may be made during burial services at FOREST HILL CEMETERY, 1 Speedway Road, Madison, at 11 a.m., on Friday, July 22, 2016.
