Victoria Suane Milton was born in 1933 and grew up in River Rouge, Michigan. Her mother was of French creole background from New Orleans. In 1938 her father, Samuel B. Milton, founded one of Michigan’s first Black-owned hospitals, Sidney A. Sumby Memorial Hospital. He was also the first Black Wayne County coroner. After getting her BA in social work from the University of Michigan in the 1950s, Victoria returned to work at Sumby Memorial Hospital in purchasing and housekeeping. She and her husband John Loomis had six children, including a set of triplets. She passed away in 2021.

Victoria Loomis was interviewed by students from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor in 2009-2010 as part of the Legacies Project.

Safe Recovered: Ann Arbor Detective Eugene Staudenmeier checks the 300-pound office safe which he and State Police Troopers Raymond L. Coger and Leonard F. Miller, jr., of the Ypsilanti post pulled from 15 feet of water yesterday in the Huron River. The safe, originally containing more than $400 in cash, was stolen in a break-in Dec. 17 from the Cottage Inn Restaurant at 512 E. William St., Ann Arbor. It was recovered by the three officers near the sewage disposal plant east of Dixboro Rd. in Ann Arbor township after it was first seen by a fisherman. There were some papers in the safe, which had been forced open, but the money was missing.
