Mrs. Casto was born Oct. 3, 1937, in Simpson, W. Va., to Howard Todd and Opal (Bennett) Campbell.
Valajean married her late husband, James Homer in 1956, and moved to Painesville where they raised six children. She enjoyed shopping, spending time with family and friends (especially her nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren), and taking care of her dogs, Sophia and Mitsy.

She is also survived by her longtime companion, Tom Seiffert, whom she loved spending time with.
Valajean was preceded in death by her sister, Freda Nicholson from Tennessee, who passed away the same day. It gives the family comfort that they are together. She was also preceded by her husband, James Homer Casto; parents, Howard Todd and Opal (Bennett) Campbell; brothers, Howard and Paul Campbell; and sister, Dottie Hullett.
