Victoria Ann Hitt, 79, passed away Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at North Mississippi Medical Center in Eupora, MS, where she was receiving hospice services. She was born May 27, 1941 in New Orleans, LA. She was the second child of John Zaffuto and Elvira Higgins Zaffuto. She married Robert in 1958, and they had five children, Robert, Jr., John, Rebecca, Mena, and Henry. She was the bookkeeper for Rubenstein’s clothing store in New Orleans until the birth of the boys when she became a stay at home mom. She and Robert returned to his home of Calhoun County in 1965 where he was employed at McQuay Manufacturing in Grenada, MS. She was a very talented seamstress and loved to make garments for her family, especially dresses for her daughter. She had no greater love than her family especially the grandchildren. They are of Pentecostal Faith and she dearly loved her Church Family and the Lord Jesus Christ. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends, but her memory will be cherished forever in their hearts.
