I just saw an entry on Facebook and am saddened to read the news. I was a high school friend from Chicago, and although I hadn't kept in touch in recent years, was still trying to keep up on her. I remember her aunt and uncle in Chicago that she lived with. My condolences to family.
I was trying to locate Val, today, and found this site. I am very saddened to read the news. I, too, had the good fortune to work for her and with her. Her passing is a tremendous loss. My sincere condolences to all of her family and friends.
She's a wonderful , caring, & loving person. RIP Valerie !
My condolences to Valerie's family and friends. I worked with her at DMV when I was just beginning my managerial career. I will always remember her as the "What if..."lady and still find myself asking that question of others. She was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgable.
