Obituary of Valentina A. Tarassov

Please share a memory of Valentina to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Valentina A. Tarassov, 77, of Princeton Junction, passed away on Tuesday, December 6th at Princeton Medical Center.

The only child of Arcadij and Tatiana Jakowenko, Valentina was born in a displaced person’s camp in Germany in 1945, during their escape of soviet communism.

Married to her loving husband, Victor, for 59 years, they lived in and raised their family in Princeton Junction, NJ. Valentina is survived by her husband Victor, their children Victor and his wife, Kathleen, Sophia and her husband, Joshua, and Alexei, grandchildren Tatiana, Christina and Antonina, and great-grand children, George, Aiden, Madeline, Julius, Harold, Xenia, Tristan, Everleigh, Xander, Gaya and Guillaume.

Valentina was an oncology nurse, caring for patients as a part of Princeton Medical Center. She was a voracious reader, with a favorite dream of being locked away from the world in a grand library. Her creativity was most generously displayed in her culinary efforts, regularly preparing and sharing a delicious variety of dishes for family and friends during holidays, celebrations, and everyday dinners. She encouraged and supported creative efforts, learning and growing, and always hoped for everyone’s peace and contentment and God’s blessings.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Church in Trenton, NJ on Saturday, December 10th at 10:00, followed by burial at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Church in Jackson, NJ.
