Valerie’s spirit was peacefully released from her shell while listening to the Native American Flute and beach sounds, surrounded by her family, at her beautiful home on Saturday, May 19, 2018, from cancer.
During her childhood, she enjoyed swimming, boating, digging foxholes pretending she was a soldier and beating up boys. In 1970, Valerie graduated from Belleville High School. Although she wanted to join the military, she chose to help the wounded by becoming a nurse. Her contagious smile made you feel loved, comforted and healed your hurt.
Valerie recently retired after 44 years of nursing. Although she loved her job and the wonderful long-lasting friendships she made along the way, she decided that it would be better with her face in the sun and her toes in the sand.
Val enjoyed reading, traveling, swimming, soaking up the sun and spending time with her family. She was the happiest when she had her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren around her. The more noise and laughter, the better! Whether it was family vacations (Disney, HHI, Vegas, Hawaii), mini trips (Mackinac Island, Lake Huron, Green Lake), day trips to Wamplers Lake, going to get an ice cream, nails done, shop or just a ride in the car…she would find any way to spend time with her family!!!
When her children were younger, Valerie was an AWANA Leader and was very involved with her church in Belleville. She was a born again Christian who found her path to God by following the Red Road (Native American Way).
