She will be welcomed with loving hands into her heavenly home and missed dearly by those who loved her. Val truly had a passion for life always reaching out with open arms and an open heart to family, friends and those in need. Val had a heart of gold.

Those who knew her would describe her as “larger than life.” Val was a world traveler, an entrepreneur, an artist with a true love and passion for animals. Much of her life was spent rescuing animals which gave her so much joy. A part of Val will live in all of us who loved her.
