East Providence - Victoria Ashley Pereira,35, known affectionately as Victoria to her friends and family, passed away peacefully on January 5, 2024, at Falmouth Hospital in Falmouth, MA. Born on November 20, 1988, in Providence, RI, Victoria was a beacon of light and joy to all who knew her. Her vibrant spirit and generous heart will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with her.
Victoria was the cherished daughter of Peter Pereira and his wife Linda of Greenville, RI, and Teresa Bravo of East Providence. She shared a special bond with her brother, Vincent Pereira and his girlfriend Shelby of East Providence, who will forever hold dear the memories they created together. Victoria's family was the cornerstone of her life, and she was beloved as a niece to John Pereira of Florida, Filomena Branco of Pawtucket, Fatima Bravo of East Providence, August and Paula Bravo of Swansea, Louie Bravo of East Providence, Ann Bravo of Seekonk, and Rita and Joe Tavares of Providence. She was also a dear cousin to Mark and Kerri, Kevin and Jill, Joshua, and Corey. Victoria was the proud granddaughter of the late Augusto and Alda Bravo, and the late Manuel and Leonore Pereira, who preceded her in passing.
Victoria's educational journey was marked by dedication and a love for learning. A proud graduate of Mt. Hope High School's Class of 2007, she went on to earn an associate degree from Bristol Community College and a certification from C.E.S. Phlebotomy School. Her commitment to her education paved the way for a rewarding career as a phlebotomist with Coastal Medical Physicians Incorporated, where she served her community with compassion and professionalism for 13 years.
A of East Providence for 17 years, having moved from Bristol, Victoria was an active and devoted parishioner of Our Lady of the Rosary Church. Her faith was a guiding light in her life and inspired her to live with kindness and grace. Victoria's love for music and singing was evident from a young age, as she was a member of the choir at St. Elizabeth School in Bristol. Her melodious voice brought comfort and happiness to all who had the pleasure of hearing her sing.
Victoria's zest for life shone through in her many interests and adventures. She had an insatiable appetite for travel, exploring new places, and embracing the beauty of the world around her. Her passion for singing and music was matched only by her love for her family, with whom she cherished spending time. Victoria's presence was magnetic; she could light up a room with her smile and laughter. Known as the "Portuguese Princess," she was the only girl in the family and carried that title with pride and joy. Victoria found beauty and peace in the simplicity of butterflies, which reflected her own transformative and free-spirited nature. She also enjoyed going to the beach.
Those who knew Victoria would describe her as loving, adventurous, and generous, thoughtful and free spirited. Her heart of gold touched the lives of many, and her legacy of love and kindness will continue to inspire those she left behind. Victoria's journey through life was one of giving, sharing, and loving without measure. Her spirit, a blend of warmth and exuberance, will be eternally remembered and celebrated.
