Tragedy Strikes Family of Tony Valdivia, Lay Assistant To St. Matthew's Sunday Worship Service Print E-mail
Korissa Valdivia
"In the early morning of Friday, July 10th, a destructive fire took the life of Korissa Valdivia Chupp and left her two children in serious and critical conditions. Firefighters at the scene found the children clustered in their mother’s arms. The two children, Jerry (6 years old) and Kiara (2 years old), suffered burns and are now in intensive care at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Their father, Tony, suffered minor burns on his hand and his foot. Because he inhaled lots of smoke in his attempt to save his family, he has lung problems. He is expected to continue with treatment for his lungs.

Tony has been released and has started to help with St. Matthew’s mission work. A funeral service was held for Korissa at St. Matthew with the participation of Pastor Harry Therwanger, pastor of First Immanuel Lutheran Church in Chicago. Korissa was buried at Concordia Cemetery. The children remain in the hospital; both had skin grafts. We pray that they will be healed at released. This tragedy has shaken the whole community of lower income families. “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed…"
