Valentovich Sr. (Carole) of Greensburg and daughter-in-law, Marschia Wood Valentovich (David) of Delaware. Also left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren, Benjamin J.

Valentovich Jr. (Allyson), Kristin Valentovich Hargnett (Kevin) and great-grandchildren, Alexis, Melanie, Kinley and Kian Mowbray, Brianna and Noah Valentovich, Aiden and Archer Hargnett. Veronica was the loving aunt and great aunt to several nieces and nephews in the Briscar and Valentovich families. Veronica will fondly be remembered by her life time friend, Lois Hewitt, close friends, Jill Pegg and Lucy Craig, Andrea Shimko and her caregiver, Erica.

Veronica was a member of St. John the Evangelist R.C Church, where she was a former lector, and a member as well as past president of the Christian Mothers. She was also past president of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus #1275 before the Ladies Auxiliary was dissolved.

Veronica taught sewing lessons at the Singer Sewing Company on Main Street and later at Laurel Mall before working at the Red and White Supermarket on Connellsville Street. You could always find her with a smile on her face in the store bakery. Her customers knew her as Ronnie. She took that smile with her to Judy and Jean’s bakery and then to JC Penney’s where she worked there for a number of years. Veronica finally retired from Fayette County Community Action Agency (the WIC office) as a receptionist. She enjoyed sewing, designing floral arrangements, watching television, and saying the rosary each night with her niece, Diane Chuska Mahallick and watching her family pictures on her digital picture frame.

Veronica loved spending time with her family and she was quite proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and felt blessed because she lived to be a part of their lives, watching them grow up.

Friends will be received in the DONALD R. CRAWFORD FUNERAL HOME HOPWOOD, PA, on Tuesday September 6, 2022 from 2pm to 4pm and 6pm to 8pm and Wednesday, September 7, 2022 until 9:30am when prayers of transfer will be said followed by a Funeral Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00am, St. John the Evangelist R.C.
