We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Victoria Mortuary & Cremation Services
Sydonia (“Toni”) Lamza Luco, age 82, passed away peacefully on August 14, 2022 after a short illness. She was born September 9, 1939 to the late Joseph and Amelia Lamza in Halletsville, Texas.
Sydonia is preceded in death by her brothers Leonard and Billy Lamza, sister Evangeline O'Neal, and sons Christopher Eric and Darryl Glenn Branecky. She is survived by her brother Cleo Lamza, sisters Betty Jo Baca and Eunice Vincent, son Randall and wife Sylvia Branecky, and daughter Amy Branecky and husband Joshua. She also has a grandson Christopher Branecky and wife Amber, a granddaughter Amber Branecky and two great grandchildren.
After completing school, Sydonia was a homemaker and bookkeeper for numerous years. She loved being with people and at the age of 50 went to Victoria College to earn her LVN license. She worked as an LVN for 25 years at Cuero hospital, several local assisted living facilities, and with home health care agencies. Although she enjoyed taking care of others, she finally retired her nursing scrubs to enjoy being at home with her animals.
She had an artistic flair and dabbled in painting and other artwork. She most enjoyed being outdoors, whether it was fishing or spending time at the beach. She especially relished working in her garden and taking care of her small flock of chickens. She adopted and adored Opie and Abby, her two dogs, and Copy, her cat.
Sydonia’s quick wit and infectious smile are going to be missed by those who were close to her as well as a multitude of family and friends. She is now peacefully resting with the Lord. The family would like to thank the staff at DeTar Hospital for making Sydonia’s final days on Earth comfortable.
Her final resting place will be Queen of the Holy Rosary in Hostyn. Contributions in her memory may be made to the Dorothy H. O’Connor Pet Adoption Center.
