We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Korban Funeral Chapel
With her husband Hughie and close family friend Jeannie holding her hands at her bedside, Val’s warm, kind, and gentle heart took its last beat on January 5th/2022.
Val was a kind, caring, and strong woman, always there for others. In 2007, she became the very first woman to become President of the Ukrainian Canadian Veterans Branch #141, a position that she loved and was proud of. She was loved and respected by so many. She was a devoted and loving wife, a hard worker, a loyal and true friend, a mentor, and a wonderful human being. To have her in your life was a true blessing.
Val will be greatly missed by her loving husband Hugh Johnson of 61 years, her brothers Dennis and Ken Benzer, her sister Bonnie Sayers, her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Hazel and Alex Nicol, her nieces and nephews and close family friends: Anne and Mel Swereda, Jeannie Pomfret and Sylvia Stacey.
You may be gone for now, but you will live forever in our hearts and memories because you have given us a lifetime of memories filled with laughter and happiness. thank you so much Val, for who you were, and we wish you a peaceful sleep until we meet again. A private family service will be held at a later date.
