Victoria Morales Obituary

        Victoria Morales, 88, of Reading, passed away November 21, 2023, at 5:45 AM in Suburban Woods Health and Rehabilitation Center, Norristown, where she was a guest since April 26, 2021.

        Born in Barrio Cacao Bajo, Patillas, Puerto Rico, she was a daughter of the late Leocardio Santiago and Ramona (Soto) Santiago. Growing up, she studied sewing at the Vocational School of Art and Design in Guayama, Puerto Rico, before moving to the Bronx, New York in 1953, where she would work her way up to becoming a head seamstress at the Empire State Building in Manhattan, New York. Following her time in New York, Victoria moved to Florida, before spending her remaining retirement years in Reading and Norristown, PA.

        She was predeceased by her late husband, Alfredo Ramos Morales, who passed away in 2008, as well as her 4 siblings – Leocardio, Darita, Genaro, and Juan Bautista Santiago-Soto, and her grandson Christopher Moss.

        Victoria is survived by her children – Alfredito L. Morales, husband of Lilly Morales, Reading, PA, Wanda Victoria Morales, wife of Anthony St. Prix, Queens, NY, and Ruth Minerva Morales, Fort Lauderdale, FL; her siblings – José Luis Santiago-Soto, Anna Petra Santiago-Soto, and Alvilda Laboy, all of Puerto Rico; 4 grandchildren- Devone Bland, husband of Dawn Bland, and Tye, Tristan, and Tahj Morales; and her 3 great grandchildren- Donovan Williams and Khristian and Jaiden Bland.

        Whether from cooking large meals for neighbors in the Bronx, singing and dancing to Celia Cruz after dinner, or relaxing with her family to play highly contested games of dominoes, Victoria will be remembered by her loved ones and community for her hard work, generosity, and fun-loving spirit.

        The Morales family would also like to thank the Suburban Wood Rehabilitation staff and residents for their support and for making Victoria a welcome member of their community in recent years.
