Born in Homs, Syria on April 7, 1922, to Boutros George Antoun and Khatun Khawayjian, she came to Rhode Island in 1952 with her husband, the late Very Rev. Abdulahad Gabriel Doumato, who was pastor of St. Ephraim's Syriac Orthodox Church in Central Falls RI for over 50 years.
Victoria is survived by her four children and their spouses: Gabriel Doumato and his wife Eleanor A. Doumato of Newport, RI, Maia Doumato Marangos and her husband Paul Marangos of Carlsbad, CA., Lamia Doumato of Washington, D.C., and Ephraim Doumato and his wife Louise Bucci Doumato of Cumberland, RI.

Victoria lived to know and enjoy all of her fourteen great grandchildren: Gabi and Sebastian Doumato, Jacob, Sophia and Emma Gordon, Gianni and Scarlett Doumato, Andre, Victoria and Julien Lamy, Audrey and William Cornett, and Paul and Katherine Marangos. She was also "Auntie" to scores of nieces and nephews raised in the Rhode Island area.
