Victoria Taylor Sassos

Victoria Taylor Sassos, 21, of Dawsonville, died July 11, 2018.

 A brilliant mind, Victoria excelled easily in her education and everything she put her mind to. She was a graduate of Millcreek High School and was attending Georgia Gwinnett College. Her deep heart had endless love for her family, as she was eager to spend as much time as possible with her father, sisters, niece and nephew. She wanted nothing more than to give and receive unconditional love.

Her endless love for living beings brought Victoria to volunteer at many organizations, especially for homeless advocacy groups and animal hospitals. She would easily give the shirt off her back for anyone, even a stranger, in need.

Her grandparents, Dr. George Sassos and Dr. Elly Sassos; a cousin, Achillies Haygood; a great-grandfather, Lamar Leake; and a grandmother, Helen Leake, preceded her in death.

Survivors include her father, Dr. Philip Theodore Sassos; her mother, Heather; four sisters, Joanna, Elly, Kate, and Christina; three aunts, Vasilia, Summer  and Stephanie; six cousins, Aries, Devon, Alyssa, Gabrielle, Ansley and Zachary; and several niece and nephews; various other relatives also survive.

A memorial service was held at 10 a.m. July 15 in the Bearden Funeral Home chapel with Doctor Reverend Joan Murray officiating.

The family received friends from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to Tim Tebow Foundation, 2220 County Road 210 West, Suite 108, PMB 317 Jacksonville, Fla. 32259 or on their website

Bearden Funeral Home of Dawsonville was in charge of the arrangements.
