It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that Victoria passed away this morning at 4:15AM after a sudden illness. She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Rhodus, her mother, Betty Pugh, both of Colorado and 3 grandchildren. Prior to moving to Richmond, VA, Victoria lived in San Diego, Denver and Amarillo. Victoria ran a blog entitled, “Windsor’s America” on the website, “Richmond Patriots” or “The Patriots.” She was a champion for liberty defending the Constitution and instrumental in exposing corruption in the state of Virginia and criminal activity in and of the Obama administration. Victoria fought the good fight for our country and now deservedly and peacefully rests with God.

Victoria is now “in the palm of His hand”
(Jul. 11, 2012) — The Post & Email has been told by a close friend that Victoria passed away at 4:15 EDT this morning. We extend our deepest condolences to her family and friends, of which there were many.
Victoria was active on blogs and newspapers in the constitutional arena. She was an excellent researcher, particularly in the area of ancestry. One of the last emails The Post & Email received from her stated that she had found evidence that the records of Madelyn Payne Dunham and Stanley Armour Dunham had been “tampered with.”
Victoria had also performed extensive research on the background of then-presidential candidate Rick Santorum in an attempt to determine if he met the definition of “natural born Citizen” found in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution. It was believed that Santorum’s father had not naturalized prior to his son’s birth. Santorum dropped out of the race on April 10 but could be a candidate for vice president. The vice president must qualify under Article II in order to assume the duties of the president in the event of the president’s “removal, death or resignation” under the 25th Amendment.
The last email exchanged between this writer and Victoria was on April 15. Although something seemed amiss, it was not identifiable. Others had also begun to notice that something was different. We believe that Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III was one of the last people in our community to speak with her before she was hospitalized. Fitzpatrick has had her in his prayers since learning of her illness.
Victoria was very concerned about the signs of Sharia law taking hold in the United States and introduced us to a knowledgeable person on the subject.
Over the last several months, Victoria had been involved in a new project which we do not believe she was able to complete.
She was a strong moral supporter of all of her friends. Last fall, when this writer was experiencing some personal challenges, Victoria was one of the few people in whom we confided. She would sign her name with just a “V.” In one of her messages about the subject, she said, in part:
Stay warm and safe. Your spirit is brighter now, I can hear it in your words. V
Victoria also provided assistance to this writer and others upon the receipt of death threats in June of last year through her research on cyberstalking laws. She stood up for what was right and always showed concern for others. Ever vibrant and energetic, it was a shock to this writer to learn approximately three weeks ago that she was gravely ill.
Upon the death of this writer’s father last July, Victoria sent a lovely note, to which we responded, in part:
The way in which you have expressed your thoughts to me has great meaning, and I take comfort from your words.
She was also supportive of others who have lost loved ones during the past year.
We never met her, but we are told she was beautiful, with blue eyes and long blond hair. We were told she looked much younger than her actual age.
We pray that her journey was a warm and safe one. We take comfort in knowing that she is now in repose with He Who “raises us up on eagle’s wings and holds us in the palm of His hand.” Rest well, dear friend.
