Victoria Susan Kennedy-Doll, age 74 of Gnadenhutten, Ohio, died peacefully in her home on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Victoria was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and nurse, who gave selflessly to love and care for others.

Born December 17, 1947 at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bremerton, Washington, Victoria was the only child of the late Lieutenant and Mrs. John S. Crow. Her mother, Helen Kennedy, was one of three children born to her late grandparents, Clayton and Clara Maud Kennedy of Dillon, Montana. She spent summers on their ranch in Montana and was very close to her grandparents, both of whom left indelible marks on her life. Victoria graduated from Samuel F. B. Morse High School in San Diego, California, where she met two of her life-long friends. She went on to graduate from the School of Nursing at University of Northern Colorado.

Victoria is survived by her husband, Dick Doll of Gnadenhutten; her children, Todd (Michelle) Bacon, Melanie (Bryant) Bacon and Aimee (George) Cardenas; her step-children, Daniel (Kristie) Doll and Christine Shearer; and, her 14 grandchildren and one great grandchild. Among her greatest lessons taught were the importance of serving others, family, compassion, hard work, always learning, and the resilience of the human spirit.

In keeping with Victoria’s wishes, she is to be cremated through the care of the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory in New Philadelphia, Ohio. A private family interment will be planned for a later date in the Centennial Valley, Montana. Donations will be accepted in lieu of flowers: Hospice Foundation of America, 1707 L Street NW, Suite 220, Washington, DC 20036,

I am so glad I got to meet this wonderful lady. My visit with her and my cousin Dick showed me how they truly loved each other and were taking care of each other. It was wonderful to see people like that. I wish I would have gotten to know her better. I am so sorry for her family's lost.

My heart was saddened to learn of Victoria's passing; I met her and Dick through her children. We shared an adventure several years ago that still makes me chuckle and was an example of her love, kindness, and determination. Her gentle nature, sense of humor, and kind energy was clear right from the start. I know that we expect our parents to go before us, but that doesn't necessarily make it easier when it happens; learning to live without a parent we love is one of the hardest things we'll ever do. The experience of knowing her has absolutely been a blessing. My deepest condolences to everyone who loves her.

My deepest condolences to everyone. We were friends of Dick and Victoria and shared a lot of good memorable times with them. I also heard the story about the 4-H project of the little pigs. It was hilarious listening to her telling it, she was a great storyteller. I will always treasure her friendship has being a kind and compassionate friend, she always enjoyed the moment, no matter what we were doing. She endured a lot in the last 5 to 6 yrs and left this world way too soon. May all of you find comfort with her memories that you shared. ?

My deepest sympathy to the family of Victoria. I am one of her quilt group friends that had the pleasure of knowing this kind, sweet woman. We all remember how she could tell a story (Mrs.Bacon chasing the 4H project pigs) & have us all laughing. She was a treasure! Sending comforting prayers to her family.
