Can a water shut off valve be repaired?

The leaking water valve needs to be shut off. Next, loosen the packing nut and then remove the handle from the stem. Is this true? To check for leaks, open the repaired water valve and turn the water on. If it's leaking, tighten the packing nut one-eighth of a turn at a time.
