Maria Valatka


Maria was a true inspiration, and friends & family may find solace in knowing that she is now peacefully reunited her mother and father.



To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Maria's Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following



Multiple Sclerosis Foundation

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, known in the MS community as MS Focus was founded in 1986, at a time when no disease specific-treatments were available, with the intention of providing – through research and networking – information to people with MS about how to maintain their quality of life. Noticing that many critical needs of those in the MS community were going unmet, the organization shifted focus, delivering services that directly benefited people with MS and their families by providing grants to individuals with MS for much-needed services and devices. These may be directly related to their healthcare, such as funding for a neurologist visit for the uninsured, prescription co-pays, and physical, occupational, or speech therapy. Or they may be items that aid in adapting to changing circumstances, such as portable wheelchair ramps, hand controls for vehicles, or cooling aids for heat intolerance. Today, MS Focus remains a leading source of accurate, unbiased information, and offers dozens of services that improve the lives of people with MS.

Greenwood House Hospice

The Valatka Family would like to thank the entire staff for the compassion and generosity they provided Maria while she was under their care. A memorial contribution to the Greenwood House Hospice would be both a living tribute to Maria’s inspirational memory and help other families receive the care they deserve when they need it most.
