Valerie A. Wiles

July 20, 1957 – July 1, 2024

Valerie Alyce (Eberly) Wiles entered into her final rest in the early hours of Monday, July 1, 2024.  She was born July 20, 1957, in Omaha, NE, to Mr. and Mrs. Carroll and Delores Eberly.

Val, known fondly as the youngest of the Eberly girls, stood out due to her beauty, kindness and humor.  She was raised in the South Omaha Field Club area, moved as a teenager with her Mom and stepdad, Lou Stokes, to another South Omaha home.

Val’s home may have been considered small but all felt welcome, as her heart was large enough for all. Val invested in those things that are eternal, namely relationships, her family, friends and those in need.  Many thought of her as a Mom, who either did not have one, needed one or saw the acceptance and refuge her home and heart offered. Val remains dearly loved by one and all, and never knew a stranger.

She could never be on time, and many a celebratory meal was begun without her, but the celebrations were never really complete until she arrived.  She never asked for special treatment, or revealed her ailments and limitations, deciding to do all she could to make any event go without a hitch, other than her timely attendance. She always stayed in contact with her sisters and family with her own version of texting that will forever be unique and hers. Her laughter alone was contagious and one of a kind.  As a Grandma, she took great delight in participating in their school, sporting events, and lives and praying for all her Grandchildren. Val often expressed her desire and longing to once again be with her husband, Kirk Wiles Sr. Their children are greatly comforted, knowing that their parents are now together again, forever.

Val may not have had many material possessions but her eternal investments are forever stored in the Heaven, as she looked forward to through her saving faith in Jesus Christ, as her Savior and Redeemer.  As a widow herself, the personal testimonies of the many people she impacted are endless. We will forever miss her until reunited on that great day.  “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Matt 25:23a.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Carroll Eberly,;Delores Stokes; and stepfather, Lou Stokes; along with her husband, Kirk Wiles, Sr.  She is survived by her sisters, Sandra (Perly) Schoville, Kristine (Tom) Shaffer, Denise (Bob) Manners; sons, Joshua Wiles, Jacob Wiles, Kirk Wiles, Jr, daughter, Janna (Billy) Thompson; and numerous Grandchildren.

    Val, you have been a friend and family since we were 11 yrs old. We were partners in crime!. You always made time for me whenever I came back to Omaha. You and your husband Kirk made my husband Jim family as well. You are forever in my heart and mind. I loved that you always visited my dad too, I miss and love you more than I can say. But you were lost without Kirk and now you are together. Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again. Vickie and Jim
