Victoria Cavaney, 60, real estate manager

Victoria Cavaney, who owned and managed real estate in Northern Virginia, California and Hawaii, died Sept. 23 at Inova Fairfax Hospital after suffering a stroke. She was 60.

A native of Southern California, Mrs. Cavaney was a graduate of the University of Southern California, where she studied international relations. She was a resident of the D.C. area for 31 years.

Among the properties she owned and managed was the Victoria Hotel, a family property named for her on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu.

In addition to her real estate management, she served as a design consultant for residential properties.

She was an active supporter of music and fine arts in the D.C. area as well as in Honolulu. In Hawaii, she was a life member of the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame and supporter of the theater.

As a youngster, she was an active surfer in Newport Beach, Calif., and in Hawaii long before it was common to see females participating in the sport.

She is survived by her husband, Red Cavaney, president of the American Petroleum Institute; a son, Tom Cavaney of Arlington; a daughter, Kristin Cavaney Roper of South Riding, Va.; and two grandchildren.

The family will spread her ashes into the Pacific Ocean off Diamond Head Point in Oahu.

Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of choice.
