Carol J. Valecko
June 27, 1957 ~ September 22, 2023 (age 66) 66 Years Old
Carol J. Valecko, 66, of Coraopolis, died on September 22, 2023, at Merakay Allegheny Valley School of Coraopolis. Born June 27, 1957, in McKeesport, she was the daughter of the late Peter and Elaine (Putanko) Valecko.
Carol was disabled from four months old, and despite all of her battles, she lived life and brought joy and love to others through her innocence. A simple touch on the cheek would bring a smile and giggle from her that you would remember for a lifetime. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff and caregivers of Merakay Allegheny Valley School of Coraopolis for their lifelong care and compassion.
Carol is survived by her sisters, Nancy (and the late Kenneth) Goldsworthy of Belle Vernon, Diane (Steven) Jackson of Elizabeth Twp., and Donna (Joseph) Maykut of Oviedo, FL; nieces and nephews, Angel, Molly, Jill, Nicholas, Aliyah, and Jordan; great nieces, Madison and McKensie; also many cousins and extended family.
Family and friends will be received at Willig Funeral Home & Crematory in McKeesport on Thursday, September 28, 2023, from 5 to 7 p.m. A funeral service will be held Friday, September 29, 2023, at 10 a.m., in the funeral home chapel. Committal prayers and burial will follow in Penn Lincoln Memorial Park.
