Obituary for Victoria Gyton
Victoria "Ms. Vickie/Maw-Maw" Gyton, the smoothest woman to ever walk the earth, was born February 5, 1956 to the beloved Ruby Williams and Fred McMiller (deceased) in Little Rock, Arkansas. From the tender young age of three, Victoria was raised in the union of her mother Ruby and Richard Mack (deceased). Victoria had two children: her daughter Melinda Sheri and her son Jerry Lee. She also has two grandsons (Nicholas and Ryan) who she cherished, supported, and loved with all of her heart. She is preceded in death by her husband, David Gyton who was part of the Hawks Motorcycle Club in Chicago, IL.

Victoria was a strong figure in her family and helped raise many including her siblings, nieces, and nephews. Victoria was a woman who taught everyone the power of selfless love and authenticity. She was the backbone for many people and the lessons she gave to her friends and family members revolved around self-validation, self-preservation and self-motivation. Victoria loved hard and she was VERY territorial of those she loved. She was a fighter and she never gave up!

Many will remember Victoria for the great things she has done, but everyone will remember her powerful presence that filled the atmosphere when she entered a room. Victoria was a vibrant and free spirited woman who proudly worked for the federal government. She enjoyed riding on the back of her husband’s motorcycle, and one of her favorite pastimes was shooting pool…and she was GOOD!

Victoria was a believer with an undying faith in The Lord. She walked by faith and not by sight! In addition, she was great with words and wrote many poems like, "In My Zone Alone" and "Happy To Be Nappy," which exemplified her introverted nature and her own self-love! Victoria was truly a teacher, friend, and blessing to any and everyone she met! She will always be remembered as the life of the party!

Victoria is survived by: her loving mother, Ruby Woods (Lee); one daughter, Melinda Sargent-Bond (Donte); one son, Jerry Lee Sargent Jr.; eight sisters, Debbie Thomas (Darryl), Patricia Pittman (Keith), Ollie McDowell (Larry), Janet Tatum, Ella Smith (David), Tonya Davenport, Patricia Timms and Kenyatta Williams; four brothers, Richard Mack Jr., Anthony Mack (Tamie), Fate McMiller and Richard “Rock-Head” Mack Jr.; and two grandchildren, Nicholas Sargent-Johnson and Ryan Sargent-Wilson. Victoria also leaves a countless number of friends and a host of relatives that include aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law to cherish her memories.

Although Victoria will be missed, we should rest in knowing that she is enjoying GLORY with her Grandmother (Ernestine Long), Grandfather (Freddie Williams), Aunts (Annie Mae Simmons and Ida Bell Johnson), Uncle (Arthur Williams), and her beloved Brother (David Williams).

A memorial Service will be held at 3:00 PM on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at Serenity Funeral Home.
