Obituary of Valentina Wilkinson
Valentina “Vallie" Wilkinson
January 27, 1933 – July 24, 2023
Valentina “Vallie” Wilkinson (née Baby) passed away quietly in her home surrounded by her family on Monday, July 24. A determined woman, Vallie valued her independence and never hesitated to speak her mind. She treasured moments with and was fiercely proud of her family and enjoyed her many friends and beloved four-legged companions. Vallie was born and raised in Windsor and worked at Tepperman’s and the University of Windsor for many years. She is mourned and missed by her four sons Chris (Maureen), Mark, David, and Jeffrey (Karen; previously Nancy); sister Patsy; eight grandchildren Matthew, Jane, Steven, Julia, Stuart, Craig, Ryan, and Michael; and five great-grandchildren Rachel, Colin, Elise, Julian, and Mary-Joy, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends. Vallie was looking forward to once more seeing her late husband, Johnny, who passed away in 2015. Vallie was also pre-deceased by parents Harry and Jenny, brother Tony, grandson Adam, and daughter-in-law Mary. The family plans to celebrate Vallie’s life with an intimate gathering and, in lieu of flowers, asks that you please consider donating to the Windsor-Essex Humane Society (https://windsorhumane.org).
