Memories

Victoria Bartlett was born in 1914, in Helper, Utah, 1 of 7 children born to Joseph and Angelina Simonetti. Their family consisted of 5 girls and 2 boys. Her mom, dad, and older sister came across the ocean from Italy, and were processed through Ellis Island.

Victoria went to elementary school in Helper, Ut, Jr. High and High School in Price, Utah. While boarding the school bus one day on her way to high school, she was pushed underneath the bus while it was moving. She sustained severe damage to both legs. She spent the last part of that school year homeschooled.

She married Maurice Bartlett in 1937 and had 2 children, a son and a daughter.Victoria loved taking care of her grandchildren and golfing in a ladies league from her work. She loved playing golf, most of all, with her grandsons every Wednesday at a local golf course.
