Victoria was one of two children raised up and nurtured to be gentle, kind and loving. She attended Quakers Friends Girls School in Ramallah and graduated in 1939. After graduation from school, along with her parents and sister, she moved to the United States where she attended Transylvania College in the early 1940's.

She was active member and founder of a couple of prominent charities in Ramallah, Infant Welfare and the Ramallah Embroidery Cooperative reviving the heritage of needle embroidery of Ramallah. Victoria moved back to Kentucky in 1980 to join her father Mousa Ackall after her husband died in 1976 in Ramallah. She was happy to return to her old town of Lexington and relished the quiet ambiance of the town. She joined the local Senior Club and was happy to congregate with her friends, Arab and American. She was always a caring mother and grandmother to her children and grandchildren. For pastime, she loved to bake homemade bread, knit sweaters and blankets.
