Reportedly her father was an Italian, whereas her mother was half-Italian and half-Russian. They eventually migrated to the United States and settled down in New York City.

Victoria DiGiorgio Is The Widow Of Gangster John Gotti
Like we said earlier, Victoria DiGiorgio was married to John Gotti. The couple married on March 6, 1962, in a private wedding ceremony. Talking about the beginning of their romantic relationship, they met for the first time at a bar in 1958.
As fate had it, their first meeting was an instant click for both of them. The former couple dated for over four years before they finally decided to tie the knot.
Though the couple shared an incredible bond, they started having trouble in their marriage later on. The conflict primarily arose after Gotti introduced one of their son John Jr. to the mafia world without DiGiorgio’s knowledge.
Their Marriage Ended With John Gotti’s Death
Apart from occasional misunderstandings and conflicts, Victoria apparently had a decent relationship with her late husband Gotti. But unfortunately, their marriage came to an end on June 10, 2002, after her then-husband died in the United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners, Springfield, MO. He died because of complications from throat cancer.
Victoria DiGiorgio’s husband John was first diagnosed with throat cancer back in 1998. Thereafter, he was sent to United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield for Surgery. Though the tumor was removed, it reappeared two years later. Thus, he was sent back to Springfield, where he also lived the rest of his life.
Unfortunately, his condition declined eventually, leading to his death at the age of 61. His family didn’t get Requiem Mass, but rather a memorial Mass after the burial.
Victoria DiGiorgio is the Mother Of Five Kids
Well, Victoria had five beautiful children, Angel, Victoria Gotti, John A., Frank, and Peter J. Gotti from her marital relationship. Unfortunately, she lost one of her children Frank when he was just 12 years old. He was reportedly hit by a drunk driver named John Favara, who was their neighbor.
Well, almost four months after the death, Favara reportedly disappeared, which led to the assumption that John was involved in the matter, which was never resolved.
The death of Frank took a toll on Victoria, emotionally and mentally. She had reportedly gone into depression and had even become suicidal.
Besides, as per FBI documents, Victoria was also married once before John. In fact, she also had a kid from her relationship with her first husband. However, she has not revealed any details about the matter.
