Valerie Ann Viafore

February 14, 1954 - January 9, 2020

Valerie Ann Viafore, 68, of Lady Lake, Florida, went to Heaven on January 9th, 2020 (her mothers birthday), after fifteen months of living bravely and optimistically with a terminal cancer diagnosis. She was born to Alexander Viafore and Sophie Viafore, on Valentines Day, February 14th, 1951 in Yonkers, NY. <br /> <br /> She attended Lincoln High School, in Yonkers, NY. <br /> <br /> She went on to study Nursing and became a Certified Nursing Assistant. For many years she worked at Noble Horizon Nursing Home in Salisbury, CT. In 2006 she moved from Lakeville, Connecticut to Lady Lake, Florida where she was employed by WalMart and enjoyed helping people in the garden center. <br /> <br /> Valerie loved Arts & Crafts, she was especially gifted with knitting and crocheting. She loved making scarves, hats, blankets, etc. for her family and friends. She loved reading mystery and romance novels. <br /> She had the ability to make others around her smile and laugh. <br /> <br /> Valerie is survived by her children Tabitha Morano, of Poughkeepsie, NY and Dennis Orefice of Concord, NC; her grandchildren Jessica and Courtney Morano of Poughkeepsie, NY, Nicholas, Anthony, and Vincent Orefice of Concord, NC; and her siblings, Camille Dennett, of Lady Lake, FL, Patricia Mazzola, of Nokimas, FL, Alexander Viafore Jr. of Tuckahoe, NY, Kenny Viafore, of Duckbury, MA, and Ronnie Viafore of St. Augustine, FL; and several nieces and nephews. <br /> <br /> She was preceded in death by her parents Alexander and Sophie, and her brother Vincent Viafore. <br /> <br /> Per her request, there will be no services, but there will be a memorial service for family and friends this spring to celebrate her life.
