Victoria Urban

Funeral services will be held for Victoria Urban (nee Evanovich) at noon on Friday, Nov. 14, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 1619 Washington St., in Grafton. Victoria died on Thursday, Nov. 6, 2008, at the age of 90. Visitation will be held on Friday, from 10 a.m. until the time of service at noon. Mueller Funeral Home in Cedarburg is serving the family.

Victoria was born on Dec. 5, 1917, in Sharon, Pa., daughter of Peter and Magdelene Evanovich. She was the youngest of three daughters. Victoria and her family relocated to Milwaukee, where Victoria attended school, graduating from West Division High School.

After graduation, Victoria enjoyed a professional career as an assistant/office manager at an obstetrician/gynecologist office. On June 5, 1948, Victoria married Terry Urban. They welcomed three daughters into their lives and were lucky enough to be married for 53 years, living in Milwaukee, Port Washington, Grafton (where they spent the majority of their married life) and finally settling in Cedarburg. Two grandsons blessed their lives.

Victoria was a full-time homemaker. She was well known for her fantastic cooking as well as her abilities as a seamstress. She also was an excellent knitter and could crochet with the best. In addition, she was extremely crafty, making candles, candy wreaths and dolls, and she delighted everyone with her delicious homemade candies and cookies at holiday time.

Playing cards was a favorite pastime, but Victoria and Terry also realized they loved to dance. They began their dancing years by taking ballroom dancing but eventually found their way to square-dancing and round-dancing, which they were passionate about. Some of their fondest memories were spent on the dance floor. Terry died on Nov. 17, 2001, and Victoria eventually moved to Cedar Gardens, a place where she developed wonderful friendships which greatly enriched her final years.

Victoria is survived by her loving children, Kathy Urban, Vicki (Nick) Leifeld and Wendy (Gregg) McManners; her two grandchildren whom she cherished, Justin Leifeld and Kyle McManners; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
