On May 17th, 2023, Valerie Jean Losos of Ft. Worth, TX passed away due to complications with pulmonary edema. Valerie, born on February 20, 1943 to the late John and Helen (nee Zaworski) Banas, was 80 years old and the loving wife to Frank Losos and loving mother to their three sons. She was a Chicago native for 56 years, before in search of a warmer climate, moved to Fort Worth, TX, to be near some of her grandchildren. Valerie was an extremely kind and considerate person and always placed her neighbors before herself. She spoke well of her work life including her first job in high school, at the Bakery that had the best “kolaczki”, to working at her brother-in-law’s (Gus Losos) water purification company. Her favorite thing was family. She loved to decorate her home, cook and enjoyed time together with family and friends.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years Frank, her three boys, Frank (Kim) Losos of Bismarck, ND, Brian (Beth) Losos of Aledo, TX and Scott (Larinda) Losos of Black Diamond, WA ; her six grandchildren, Sarah (Jeremiah) McFarlen of Bismarck, ND, Hannah Losos of Minneapolis, MN, Katelyn (Connor) Johnson of Benbrook, TX, Nicholas (Emily) Losos of Denton, TX, Seth Losos of Pembina, ND, and Abby Losos of Aledo, TX; her four great-grandchildren, Kayde, Krue, Maggie, and Kylo McFarlen all of Bismarck, ND. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Donna Banas of Elwood, IL. Valerie was preceded in death by her brother Larry Banas.

Everyone who knew her were fortunate to have her in their lives. Those closest to her are granted peace by her strong faith in Jesus.

Lovingly remembered by all her family and friends.
