Valerie Maureen Barry passed away at her home on July 7, 2018, after a lengthy illness. She was 66 years old. Valerie was predeceased by her parents Gordon Noseworthy and Bertha (Mercer) nee: Butt. Valerie leaves to mourn her husband Mike, son Michael (Lori) and grandsons, Thomas and Aidan. She also leaves to mourn her sisters Jean, Margurite, Sharon and Deanna; brothers Murray and David; special nephews Gordon Noseworthy, Shane Noseworthy, Jonathan Solazzo, Joshua and Parker Boyd; Godson Brady Barry, as well as a large circle of family and friends. Valerie worked for a number of years as an RNA at CNRHC but retired in 1997 and spent much of her time as she enjoyed it at her cabin with nature and her family and close friends. Valerie was a private person in many ways but loved spending time with her family and friends. After selling the cabin Valerie focused her time on many hobbies such as painting, cross stitch, crocheting, knitting or whatever became her focus at that time. Then look out, everyone got a homemade something. Once she became a grandmother her focus shifted again. She loved doing things with Thomas and Aidan; their Sunday suppers and taking them on outings or road trips here and there. Valerie had some very special nephews whom she was also very close too. She would take them under her wing just like her own and it seemed as though when one grew up and moved on another one came along. She could always depend on her siblings to keep her with children to love and dote on. She always said she had a special thing for little boys and God just kept giving her boys. When someone became a part of Valerie’s life, whether it was family or friends, that was it, they were like her own. As a result Valerie will be sadly missed by many people. However, Valerie suffered a great deal in the past months and graciously God saw fit to end that suffering.
There will be a private time of celebrating Valerie’s life at the funeral home on Wednesday July 11, 2018, for family and friends as per her wishes.
The family are very grateful to HOSKINS FUNERAL HOMES Earle St. Grand Falls-Windsor, for their professional and courteous services at their time of need.
