Valerie was an Accounts Payable Manager for Eureka Services, prior to that at Equitrans Midstream and Spark Energy. She was a fun-loving mother who had a passion for all animals, she especially loved her animals. She loved traveling and trying new foods. Valerie had a creative and very giving spirit; she loved making Diaper Cakes for others, and one of her greatest joys was putting together care packages and sending them to our soldiers overseas.

A devoted mother, Valarie is survived by her loving sons, Michael and Chris Perret; brother, Sean Kick; aunt, Kathy Rowan; cousins, Rhonda, Joe, Jill, Jeff and Robert, as well as many dear friends.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center for their loving care of our mother.

Valerie was a blast to work with at Spark Energy and Marlin Midstream and such a good friend. I enjoyed the fun times I had with Michael and Chris who would often come over to earn money and try and beat me at video games. Oh and the stories they’d tell me about their mom!
I was sad to hear of the struggles she was having with her health. I know she will be missed dearly by her sons, relatives, and all her friends.
I am unfortunately unable to attend the service as I’m out of town. I can’t access my photos either that I would have wanted to share. I wish everyone strength as we all cope with the loss of such a terrific lady.
