Obituary of Valeria Viniarskaia

Valeria Viniarskaia was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother, a talented artist and poet, as well as was an amazing human being who always saw the bright side of everything and put a smile on everyone ’s face. This amazing angel passed away on May 15, 2020 after battling cancer for three months. She was a brave soul and a courageous spirit who will be sorely missed by her son Andrew, daughter-in-law Angela, granddaughter Christina, and her many wonderful friends who are like family.


She was born April 9, 1939 in Krasnogorsk, Russia in a large family, which included her parents and three brothers. Valeria was married in 1961, and bore two sons named Andrei and Artem. When she retired in 2000, Valeria immigrated to the United States to live with her son’s family. When she immigrated to the states, she said that her second life began. She fell in love with America and the adventures that ensued.


Valeria was always a multi-faceted and extremely passionate human being, who was curious, interested, and excited about many aspects of life. She always found the beauty, humor, and intrigue of everything. This excitement about life inspired many around her, and her energy was truly infectious. She lit up every room with her optimistic mindset through her poetry, art, and never- ending humor. She had a lifelong passion for poetry and painting, and in 2010 she published a poetry book Hello from Seattle in which she reflected on her life observations both in Russia and the USA. She finished her second book with a collection of poems and stories, and it will be released this summer.


She will always live in our hearts and souls, and she will be remembered through her many beautiful works throughout the years.


Rest in peace, our dear Valeria.                                                                                     


Until we meet again, dear love.
