Long time IWCA member and former officer and director, Roni Kaluza, College Grove, TN, passed away suddenly on January 19, 2018.

Roni and husband, Randy Valenti, bred and exhibited their hounds under the affix, Sidhe. She was approved by the AKC to judge four breeds and was active with her Petits Bassets Griffons Vendeens, as well. Her dedication to Irish Wolfhounds serves as an example for all of us. She is deeply missed.

The family will receive friends from 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM on Monday, January 29, 2018 at St. Philip Catholic Church, 113 Second Avenue South, Franklin, Tennessee, where a Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00 AM with Father Bala Showraiah officiating. 

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to the Irish Wolfhound Club of America and the PBGV Club of America, in loving memory of Roni Kaluza.
