Victoria Roman was the 12th child born to Joseph and Elizabeth (Marchik) Roman. Victoria was a lively lady, full of life and very much beloved by her family.

Victoria left Woodvale in her young 20's and moved to New Jersey to be with her sister Helen. And, it was in New Jersey where Victoria met John Proszak. On February 13, 1944 Victoria and John were married in her family church in Dudley, PA, Immaculate Conception. John was in the army at the time.

The wedding celebration for Victoria and John took place in the Roman family home in Woodvale and was quite a lively celebration. All furniture was removed from the house and chairs were brought in and lined up against the walls. There was a band, dancing, and a continual flow of food and drink. In the true Slovak tradition, the wedding celebration lasted for days and was great fun.

Victoria and John settled in Hillsdale, NJ and began to think about starting their family. Soon after the marriage Victoria was elated to find her self pregnant. But, sadly she suffered complications and both she and her child died during childbirth. The family named him John after his father and buried him with his loving mother.
