Colleen A. Stiles, 56, of Valley City, entered eternal peace on Tuesday, April 23, 2019. She was born November 19, 1962 to Elaine (nee Cendrowski) Erskine and Kenneth Bajerski; sister of Cathy (Bryan), Joshua (Rachael) and Robin; auntie to Sydney, Ivey, Audrey and Jacob; loving wife of Joseph and friend to countless. Gone too soon and will be deeply missed by us all.
Colleen graduated in 1981 from Holy Names High School. She was employed as a licensed optician for Lens Crafters. Colleen enjoyed crafts and scrapbooking, horseback riding, the Tribe, Christmas trees, gardening and all of her fur babies.
Nothing brought her more happiness than a summer afternoon by the pool surrounded by family and friends. She loved to cook for the holidays and bring family together.
Calling hours will be 3 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 27, 2019 at The Bauer Funeral Home, 2089 Columbia Road, Valley City, where the funeral service will be held 2 p.m., Sunday, April 28, 2019.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made in Colleen's name to the Medina County ASPCA in remembrance of the love Colleen had for animals
