Beloved wife of 71 years to Thaddeus "Ted" Witkowski, whom she married November 12, 1943 and who preceded her in death February 23, 2015. They fell in love at a very young age and their love never faded.

Valeria grew up on Chicago's Southwest Side and was a graduate of Kelly High School. A loving homemaker, she was a longtime member of St. Gall Catholic Church in Chicago. Valeria enjoyed music and singing to her grandchildren and family, gardening, playing BINGO, BUNCO and slots and solving Word Search puzzles.

A heartfelt thank you to her devoted daughter Joanne (her baby) who selflessly dedicated her entire life to care for our precious mother’s every need. She is truly a Blessing.
