    So sorry to hear of Valerie’s passing. She was a very memorable and interesting person and will not be forgotten by all who knew her. She was a fiend to animals.

      She was a friend to animals and extremely generous to animal charities.

        Valerie was an interesting and kind woman with a broad range of things that fascinated her. She delighted in the little things and was devoted to her animal and very thoughtful to her friends.

    Valerie was an interesting lady with a droll sense of humor and a broad range of things that fascinated her. She enjoyed her animals immensely and was very thoughtful to her friends. It was lovely to know her. Condolences to Eric and friends.

    So sorry to hear about Valerie. We met through the Emporia Library Science program in the early 1990s and she worked for years at the Fremont Library. It was fun to re-connect with her when she hosted the Omaha Folk Song Society at her home pre pandemic. I will echo that she did have a broad field of interests. Blessings to her family.

    I was so sorry to hear about Valerie. She was a great co-worker and friend. I remember the great time we had when we went to Kansas City together. Valerie wanted to go to the Star Trek Convention , so she asked me to go with her. We had a great time and I got my picture taken with a Klingon. I still wear her hat that she made for me with Linda to wear for John C. Fremont Days. Valerie was always finding things for me to use from her Civil War collections. Everyone will remember Cooking with Valerie at the library.
    Valerie will be missed.

    I first met Valerie in the 6th grade but we didn’t re-connect until after college. She worked at the Nebraska State Historical Society for several years and then moved to Fremont where she was the assistant children’s librarian from 1980 to 2011 at Keene Memorial Library. She was a warm, generous friend with a multitudes of interests which she was always happy to share. I will miss her so much.
