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.

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.
