Valerie gave up her battle with Alzheimer's and passed away peacefully in her sleep the evening of May 2nd, 2021 with her family around her.
Valerie was born March 29, 1950 in Edam, SK and grew up in The Parkdale District on the family farm. She told me early on in our Marriage that she didn't cook and was more adept at following her dad around the farmyard. She said cooking and cleaning was for her sisters not her. I took over the cooking shortly after as she was very truthful about that.
When Valerie and Joe first met she was 16 and Joe was 17. They were inseparable after that and were married June 27, 1970. They first lived in North Battleford where Val became a Travel Agent for Maher Agencies. They then moved to Lethbridge AB. in 1971 where Joe started a Job with Alberta Justice and Val continued her career as a Travel Agent. They moved from Lethbridge to St.Paul, AB. and then to Medicine Hat due to transfers with Joes Job.
They retired in 2004 and Moved to their Present home in Nipawin Sk. Val was a Avid C.C.Skier and loved to go fishing, Camping, and spending her time at the Lake.
Some of Val's community work was Girl Guides {Brownies} Where she was The Brown Owl for several years as she enjoyed working with young girls and especially being with her daughter as part of the organization. In Medicine Hat she became the Administrator of the Competitor Youths Waves Swim Club a volunteer job that she loved to do with her son Jay being a competitor swimmer. 
When Val was first diagnosed with Alzheimer's she faced the situation with a Brave face and said the worst thing about it is when she had to turn in her drivers license. It played on her mind sometimes but never let on and always had a beautiful smile to share. She was happy I think to the End. About two weeks before her passing as her strength was ebbing I was sitting with her telling her stories of our youth she looked at me and smiled weakly and whispered I Love You. That was the last thing she said to me.
Valerie leaves to mourn Her Husband Joe of 51 years as well as her Daughter Jolene Wittig, and Son Jay Wittig. Her Sisters Leona Carter {Clarence}, Sandra Wittig {Lorne}, Danny Bower {Lynn} and Sister in Law Joyce {Wittig} Wilson {Jim} plus numerous Nieces and Nephews and Cousins and Friends.

Her quick smile and joyful spirit will be sadly missed by all that knew her.
