WARREN, Victoria M.

December 31, 1948 – November 7, 2012

Vicki was born on December 31, 1948 in Montreal, QC, the only child of Edward and Jennie Warren. The Warren’s moved to Calgary in 1963 and settled in the Kingsland area. Following her graduation in 1966 from Henry Wisewood High School, she attended the University of Calgary. Upon earning her Bachelor of Education degree, Vicki dedicated the next thirty-three years teaching Junior High English and French for the Calgary Catholic School Board. She retired from Father James Whelihan School in 2002. Ms. Warren will be remembered as a dedicated, well liked and respected teacher. Her love of music – especially Pavarotti, and her love of politics were second to none. A highlight for Vicki was meeting Pavarotti and Pierre Elliott Trudeau in person. Her love of reading along with managing her own stock portfolio was a source of great enjoyment for Vicki, particularly during her retirement years. If a topic interested her, she delved into it with great enthusiasm and dedication. Vicki will be remembered for her kindness, dignity and poise.

Vicki is survived by her mother Jennie and was predeceased by her father Edward. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and, of course, her fluff ball of a dog, Miji.

At Vicki’s request there will be no service; condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Calgary Humane Society, 4455 – 110th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 2T7, Telephone: (403)205-4455, or directly to the Canadian Amyloidosis Support Network Inc, Thank you to Chinook Hospice staff for their kindness and compassionate care during Vicki’s stay.

  1. Cheryl (Isenstein) Kemp :

    I am so saddened to see Vicki’s obituary in the Calgary Herald. Vicki and I were best friends for part of junior high and all through senior high school. We were still good friends for the first couple of years together at U of C until I moved to Edmonton and went to U of A. Vicki was so bright and so smart – it was an honor to be her friend. We went our separate ways but years later we ran into each other at the Oakridge Co-op and she had me over for an evening. I had married and had 2 children and sadly, we did not seem to reconnect.

    I fondly remember Vicki’s Mom and Dad (my husband and I purchased our first washing machine from Ed at Woodwards) and I also fondly remember Vicki’s aunt Olga who worked at Safeway in Kingsland. May Vicki rest and peace.

    Miss Warren was a memorable French teacher at St Matthew’s in 80s. My older brothers Bernard and Declan had her too. Miss Warren was my homeroom and English teacher in 1985-1986 as well.
