Victoria Louise Newkirk Lierheimer

June 19, 1964 — December 11, 2023

Evergreen, Colorado

Victoria Lierheimer passed away at age 59 after a protracted bout with rheumatoid leptomeningitis. 

Her memorial service will be held at Aspen Ridge Church in Evergreen on December 21st at 6:30 pm.                                               A dessert reception will follow Victoria's service. 

Victoria is preceded in death by her husband, Chris, her parents, John and Carolyn, and her brother, Jeff. She is survived by her four children, Christopher, Faith, Abigail, and Rachael, and her siblings, John and Christina. 

Victoria led a rich and very accomplished life, centered upon her Christian Faith. Her insatiable curiosity led her to spend most of her career as a teacher. She co-founded and led Evergreen Academy with her late husband, Chris Lierheimer, for over 2 decades and touched hundreds of children’s lives as a school director and educator.

Victoria also took a special interest in housing equity and developed property in various locations around the state to make starter homes more accessible to young couples and reformed felons. She was very interested in criminal justice and received her masters in criminology at age 55. 

Victoria was a beloved sister, devoted mother, and cherished daughter. We will miss her greatly.
