Her life passions included sailboating from Rhode Island to Newport and back, visiting Paris, France, a plane ride over the Grand Canyon Rim, ballet, science fiction, gourmet food, musicals, broadway shows, and fuzzy felines. What she did for work was only a piece of her life. She had the pleasure of working in different occupations from radio, marketing research to computer geek jobs. She was a techie at heart with her iPhone and iPad not far behind. According to friends and family her most crowning achievement was sharing her love and energy with her beloved husband Paul.

Val and I were teenagers when we first met.. We quickly became close friends and that developed into a true love.. We cherished our time together for four years.. She was an amazing woman and without any doubt.. the love of each other's lives... We always felt that way, even when she called me to tell me bye.
I told her I'd see her on the other side.. As we age the list gets longer of loved ones waiting for us in the afterlife.. Valerie Marie had a loving heart... I guess that was the ties that bind.. see you soon Val..... Billy Newman..

I usually awful at this sort of thing, but I'll give it a go. Valerie and I worked together for 4+ years. we shared a department that has its fair share of stress. With us both working remotely we became sort of Stress Management Pen Pals over IM.

Valerie was always kind, understanding and worried about the littlest of things. She had so many great qualities that made me proud to call her friend more than co-worker. I am grateful that I got to know her. The world lost a great person but she will be remembered fondly.
