Valentina was born near Alma Ata, Kazakhstan. Eventually immigrating to the United States of America, she was a resident of California for 64 years.


Valentina departed this life peacefully surrounded by family.  She was the loving wife of Vasily for 54 years, until his passing.  She is missed greatly by her children Pavil, Liza, Alia and Tanya, and her Sons-in-Law Larry and Mark. She was adored and is missed by grandchildren Adam, Alexandra, Andrea, Katya, Natasha, Nicholas, Rita, Sophia, Timothy, Valerie, and Vasily.  Her great grandchildren are Andrew, Alyssa, Angelica, Benjamin, Bryce, Claire, David, Eliana, Isaiah, Mason, Nadia, Nathan, Olivia, and Stella.

She lived according to her unwavering Faith in Christ.  She was a great and loyal friend to many, serving her church and community for many years.


Her wisdom, grace, hospitality and generous spirit will be greatly missed by family and friends.
