Vicki Dianne Mastro

October 3, 1966 — January 27, 2024


Vicki Dianne Mastro, affectionately known as "Vicki Cupcake," passed away January 27, 2024, in her hometown of Whittier, California. She was born on October 3, 1966, at Whittier Hospital and grew up surrounded by the love and support of her family and friends.

Vicki's educational journey started at Hoover Elementary from Kindergarten through third grade before moving to Lincoln Elementary for fourth and fifth grades. In middle school, at Dexter Middle School, she discovered her passion for music by learning to play the clarinet. At Whittier High School, Vicki continued this musical journey as a member of the high school band and it was during these formative years that she developed a deep love for being involved in the school band alongside cherished band friends. While at Whittier High, she became a proud member of Taimos—a club committed to empowering girls that taught important values and social norms.  The Taimos girls spent their summers volunteering at the Whittier Public Library and raised funds to donate books to further enrich their community.  After graduating high school, Vicki attended Cal State Long Beach for two years.

Vicki's journey through life was filled with determination, resilience, and a radiance that touched the hearts of all who knew her. Her career began at Look At Me Now Beauty Salon where she worked as a receptionist. She then ventured into new opportunities, dedicating herself to working at Shaw Carpet in City of Industry.  Later she would work for Hallmark Lighting. Unfortunately, Vicki's health took a downward spiral during her time at Hallmark and it eventually led to her retirement.

Vicki's personality radiated with beauty, talent, and a delightful sense of humor. She embraced life wholeheartedly, even as her body slowed down due to her health challenges. Despite enduring immense pain in recent years, Vicki always maintained her sense of humor and never burdened others with her struggles. She consistently put the needs of those around her before her own, exemplifying what it means to be an incredible daughter, friend, sister, and auntie.

As much as Vicki cherished her various roles in life, nothing could compare to the love she had for her family. She adored spending time with her nieces and nephews, finding joy in their laughter and growth. Her little white fluffy puppy named Ricki was not only a constant companion but also a source of comfort and protection for her.

One of Vicki's proudest accomplishments was starting a card-making business as a hobby because she had a great passion for arts and crafts. Through this venture, she not only shared her creativity with the world but also touched the lives of many individuals with personalized cards that carried love and warmth.

Vicki leaves behind a profound void in the hearts of those who loved her dearly. She is survived by her loving parents, Theola and Norm Kirschenbaum; devoted brother Rodney Mastro and sister-in-law Elan Riches; caring sister Karen Reynosa and sister-in-law Teri Dath; cherished sister Alisa Chacon and brother-in-law Phil Chacon; as well as brother Jeff Kirschenbaum and sister-in-law Jen Kirschenbaum.  She is also survived by her beloved nieces and nephews, Jillian Mastro, Joshua Mastro, Megan Reynosa, Tessa Reynosa, Jackson Reynosa, Dane Dath, Max Chacon, Zack Chacon, Sam Chacon, Maddy Kirschendbaum, Molly Kirschenbaum, and Scarlett Kirschenbaum.

Despite being confined to a wheelchair in her final year, Vick never allowed her physical limitations to dampen her zest for life. She constantly sought out new hobbies to keep her mind sharp and remained an inspiration to those around her.

The memory of Vicki Dianne Mastro will forever remain etched in our hearts. Her courageous spirit, unwavering love for others, and ability to find beauty amidst adversity will continue to inspire us all. As we bid farewell to our beloved Vicki during the Funeral Service to be held on February 9, 2024, at 10am at White Emerson Mortuary in Whittier, let us remember her with fondness and celebrate the profound impact she had on our lives.

From every bird soaring in the sky, every butterfly fluttering by, and every heart that beats with love, let us be reminded of the extraordinary woman Vicki was and the legacy she leaves behind.
