Victoria “Viki” Lynn Lozano

March 13, 1951 - January 27, 2023

Victoria “Viki” Lynn Lozano, 71, of Lufkin, died Friday, January 27, 2023, at Houston Methodist Hospital. She was born March 13, 1951, in Port Arthur, to Dorothy and Charles Stepan, Jr.

Viki was a woman of many passions. She loved being a mother and especially enjoyed being Gramma to her grandchildren. She was always “mom” to her kids’ friends, or anyone needing a bit of extra care. She loved Jesus and raised her family as believers.

Viki was passionate about nature and all of God’s creatures. She especially loved her own pets. She worked in the veterinarian business for most of her working life; even until shortly before her passing, where she made many lifelong friends, both human and animal alike.

Viki was an avid gardener and crafter. She could crochet, knit, and sew just about anything, including many of her children’s clothes as they were growing up. She was a fantastic baker, with many remembered elaborate cakes and desserts. She was the class mom, and pta popcorn lady, always involved in her children’s activities. She loved music and sang and played several instruments.

Like so many things she tackled bravely, Viki fought her battle against cancer until the very end. She was and is greatly loved and her loss will be keenly felt.

Survivors include her husband, James Lozano; daughters, Lequitta Brister and husband, Brandy; Trelayne Hicks and husband, Kevin; and Shannon Cherry and husband, Michael; son, Tony Lozano; grandchildren, Levi Cherry; Haley Hicks; Jadon Cherry; Garrett Hicks; Jackson Hicks; Abigail Cherry; Kellen Hicks; Ellie Lozano; and Julie Gonzales; and siblings, Ronald Stepan and wife, Georgette; Karrie Clayton; and Jerry Stepan and wife, Pat.

She is preceded in death by her parents.
