Victorville, CA

Victor Valley Memorial Park



Originally (1916) the cemetery was located on Mojave & Victor Street. Victor Valley Memorial Park was moved to an old gravel pit site at 11th & "C" Streets and the graves had to be relocated to this new site.

Indian Marie

Marie Chapuli, better known as "Indian Marie", lived in Victorville on 10th Street between "C" & "D" where she made local news by establishing squatter's rights to a picturesque shack used for centuries as an Indian campground in Victorville. She came from the Paiutes of Nevada and Utah. She was born in the mountains surrounding Big Bear Lake and arrived in Victorville in the early 1890s. She was known for her handmade baskets made from reeds from the Mojave River. Marie died July 13, 1960, at the approximate age of 104 and is buried in Victor Valley Memorial Park.
