Valerie Ann Moore LaPier, beloved mother of Christopher Boe and Kaufi (Delgadillo) has gone to rest in a better place.
Val was born Feb. 15, 1947 to Leroy and L. Odette Moore in Bozeman. She was the oldest of three girls; her younger sisters Lucinda Moore (Bunkers) and Katherine Moore (Doney), would later become best friends. Val attended primary and secondary schools in Bozeman. She later became a skilled typist, working her way through various industries to include law firms, the U.S. Army Reserve, and as a temp for Gallatin County. She was also a member of the Eagles F.O.E. for a short period.
During her life she married three times, first to Gordon T. Boe, second to Richard J. LaPier and finally to Michael Earls.
Val had a sharp wit and sarcastic sense of humor that endeared many to her. She was always a gracious friend and would help any who needed it. Her level of forgiveness is unsurpassed by many; regardless of any wrong all were welcome in her home.
Some of her greatest joys were her seven grandchildren. She loved showing them off and bragging about any and all milestones they reached.
Val is preceded in death by her father, mother, youngest sister, Kathy, and nephew, Dan Bunkers. She is survived by her aunt and uncle, Bruce and Jo Vaughn; sister, Lucinda (Moore) Bunkers; children, Chris Boe, and Kaufi LaPier Delgadillo; grandchildren, Jeffrey Krebs, Brandon Fox, Thomas and Samantha Boe, Kaycee, Chris and Matthew Delgadillo, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Special thanks to Southwestern Hospice and Gallatin County Rest Home for the wonderful care of our beloved mother, sister, aunt and friend.
A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, May 18 at 2 p.m. at Unity Church in Bozeman.
