Victoria Ann Pfauth, age 78, of Three Oaks, died peacefully Sunday, January 16, 2022, after a brief battle with cancer.
Vicky’s life began February 25, 1943, to Louis and Sara (White) Pfauth. She graduated from Three Oaks High School and then attended Lake Michigan College. She received her bachelor’s degree in business education from Eastern Michigan University and went on to receive her master’s degree in educational leadership from Western Michigan University. She was a business teacher and later high school principal at Galien Public Schools for many years. Vicky positively impacted the lives of so many young people that she taught, coached, or just encountered. She ended her career as the High School principal in Bellview, Michigan. Throughout her career she made a wonderful difference in many lives.
After Vicky retired, she returned to Three Oaks and served on the River Valley Board of Education. She was also very involved with The Region of Three Oaks Museum as a volunteer and as a board member, having served as board president for several years. She was always a proud “Oaker”. Vicky enjoyed traveling all over the United States, visiting many beautiful National Parks with her friends, Carol Kattula and Kay Roehl. She loved working in her yard, listening to the Chicago Cubs games on the radio, and attending the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball games, as a season ticket holder.
Vicky will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by one nephew, Charles Pfauth; one niece, Arlene King; a cousin, Joan Kasper; and many other cousins and countless friends she made over the years.
