Valerie Stefaniak, after a long and courageous fight with cancer, was carried home by the arms of her savior Jesus Christ on Friday, May 20, 2011.
What Valerie cherished deeply in her life was family and in return her family deeply cherished her. She will be greatly missed by her parents, Jim and Harriet Johannsen; devoted husband, Scott; children: Rachel and Ganna Mboob, Jennifer and Zachariah Meyer, Nickolas and Ashley Rehder and Grace Stefaniak; siblings: Jim and Cheryl Johannsen, Rachel Fransen, and David Johannsen; and grandbabies: Maxwell, Madilyn, Stella, Oliver and Mykah.
Valerie spent most of her life devoted to her family. Being a mother was her pride and joy. Valerie had a passion for gift giving and loving with all she had. She enjoyed spending time serving others, warm conversation and hosting events in her home. She will be missed by many but forgotten by few, for she was such a good friend.
Arrangements are being handled by Warner Funeral Home in Spencer.
