Obituary for Virginia A. Stokowski

Virginia A. Stokowski, 96, of Peoria, passed away at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria.

Virginia was born November 26, 1921, in Sioux City, Iowa to Frank and Elizabeth (Stark) Nader. She married John E. Stokowski October 2, 1948, in Kickapoo, IL. He passed away October 29, 1984.

She was proceeded in death by her parents, one son, John S. Stokowski, one grandson, Shane M. Stokowski, three sisters, Agnes (Grawey), Irene, Margaret, and two brothers, George and Kermit.

Virginia will be remembered as a loving and caring mother, grandmother, and aunt. She was a devout Catholic who prayed and attended mass daily, if possible. Her love of faith and family was closely followed by her love of baking. Her memory will be carried on in the recipes she passed down.
