Victoria was born July 9, 1905, in the town of Colburn, Chippewa County, the daughter of John and Anna (Sliwka) Ziemba. She grew up in the Colburn area and attended area rural schools. She was then united in marriage to Hans C. Sorensen on June 25, 1924, in Chicago, Ill. After their marriage they resided and farmed in the town of Delmar, retiring in 1968 and moving into Stanley. Victoria was a lifelong member of Holy Family Catholic Parish where she attended Mass daily before moving into Rosewood Villa, belonged to the Catholic Women’s Club and the P.C.C.W., and will be remembered for leading the rosary for many visitations throughout the years.

She was also a member of the Brownsville Homemakers Club.
