Valeria was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, trips to the casino, jigsaw and crossword puzzles, golf and bowling in the earlier years, a good bowl of chili and a red beer. 

Survivors include her nine children:  Tom Streff of Dallas, TX; Pat (Steve) Heying of San Antonio, TX; Jim (Jane) Streff of West Plains, MO; Terry (Dawn) Streff of Orange City, IA; Gail (Dean) List of Waterloo, NE; John (Karen) Streff of Orange City, IA; Mary (Mike) Trizila of Sioux City, IA; Betsy (Dan) Stoll of Orange City, IA; and Bill (Cindy) Streff of Urbandale, IA; 24 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Arnold Streff of Remsen, IA; and many nieces and nephews.

Jungers; brother, Walter Jungers; half brothers Joe, Ambrose, and Paul Jungers, and Lloyd Shaffhausen; half sisters, Ethel (Edwin) Jungers and Lucinda (Ferd) Full; and a great-grandson, Thomas Streff.

The family would like to thank Father Daniel Greving for providing spiritual strength, the wonderful staff at Prairie Ridge Care Center, Kacy and the Hospice team for their care and comfort, and Patsy, Jo, and Sheila for their love and support of our dearest mother.

Mom left us a legacy of patience, understanding, encouragement, and unconditional love and we will miss her every day.
