In loving memory of Valerie Lynne Herbert born December 13, 1932 in Vancouver, BC. passed away February 1, 2020 in Kelowna, BC.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Matriarch Valerie Lynne Herbert (Curran). She is survived by her husband Carl with whom she shared 65 + wonderful years of marriage, 2 children Dean (spouse Mari) and Leanne (spouse Marvin), 4 grandchildren Danica, Kyle, Lindsey, and Evan, her sister Lita, and 2 nieces Launa and Coral.

She had a love for life. Her summers were filled with endless beach days of swimming in Lake Okanagan, entertaining with family and friends, storytelling over happy hour. She will be forever remembered as the “hostess with the mostess”...her perfected Yorkshire pudding, delicious raspberry pies. Her beautiful spirit lives on within us all.

The Family wishes to thank Dr. Obedkoff, 911 dispatch, and the paramedics.

There will be a celebration of life held in late spring or summer.

Carl, Leanne, Dean & family. I just want to send you my deep condolences on the loss of your dear wife & mom. I only met her once when she hosted Christie's shower at her house. I will always remember her floating around the party in a most beautiful blue flowing summer dress. She was beautiful. Take care.
