 “And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither; the lord gave, and the lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21 (KJV)

The Browne, Bedran, Robertson, Barbour and Butty families sadly announce the peaceful homegoing of their mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother, Mrs. Victoria Browne Bedran. She was affectionately called Aunty Vick, Grandma Vick, Ma Vick, and/or Miss Vick.

This heartbreaking event was sudden and occurred on September 6, 2018 at 3:00 am in her home following a brief illness.

Mrs. Victoria Browne Bedran was a devoted and loving figure in the family and was a mother to all, young and old alike. She was predeceased by her husband, Gubran Sabaa Bedran. They were both pleasantly known amongst the Liberian and Lebanese communities during their era as owners of Victoria’s Farm.

Mrs. Victoria Browne Bedran is survived by her son, Mr. Sami Gaby Bedran; daughter-in-law: Mrs. Angela Reeves Bedran, daughters: Mrs., Lucia Modad Robertson, Edwina Lewis, Loretta Willie, Erica Bedran Kpogba, Denise Joe, Annie Barbour, and Theresa Gibson., grandchildren: Marcelle Sami Bedran-Butty, Elias Sami Bedran, Gubran Sami Bedran, Mariam Sami Bedran, and Badriah Marhaba; sister: Esther Gibson Barbour; brother: Paullo Barbour, nieces and nephews, a multitude of relatives and friends in America, Liberia and Lebanon.

Your name is eternally carved on our hearts,
Your legacy is evermore engraved in our minds,
And the stories we will forever remember and share of you.
We love you but God loves you best.
Rest in heaven our angel, and sleep in everlasting peace next to your maker.
