In 1996 Valerie moved to Eagle Point, OR where she was a care giver to her sister Eloise and a wonderful home maker. Valerie was designated as the “Welcome Wagon” in the Eagle Point Golf Community. She made sure all new residents were greeted with a friendly face and those actions led to many lasting relationships. Valerie being a native of Sandpoint, ID returned in late Fall of 2020 to join her childhood friends called the “Wrenco Girls”.  Valerie had an incredible zest for life. Her compassionate ways, her beautiful smile, she had a warm heart and wonderful sense of humor.


Unfortunately, Valerie became ill just as she was starting to rebuild her life back in her home town, a life taken to soon. Valerie was a true believer in the Lord and loved to share her beliefs with anyone who would listen, just one of the many characteristics she was most known and beloved for. Valerie will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
