"O how she touched us with tips of wonder"
Valerie Jane Cox Corliss passed away Saturday evening Nov. 23, 2013 from complications relating to cancer. She was in her home surrounded by her immediate as well as extended family and dear friends.
Valerie was born in Provo, Utah on Dec. 20, 1949 to loving parents Zeniff Cox and Veda Sweat. She spent her childhood in Dugway, Utah before moving to Salt Lake City in her teen years. She graduated from Skyline High and went on to the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma Washington. She Graduated from Brigham Young University with Masters degrees in English, Social Work and Marriage and Family Therapy.
Valerie was a marriage and family therapist for more than 25 years. Her career suited her in the capacity it afforded her to be influential and instrumental in so many lives. She truly loved the people she was able to work with and many of her patients became as close and dear to her as family.
Valerie met and married Darrel Wayne Corliss in the Salt Lake City temple in 1990. Together they raised 4 children and 6 grandchildren. Although she blessed the lives of everyone she came in contact with, her greatest joy came from being with her family and finding any excuse she could to celebrate with them.There was no limit to the love and kindness she showed and the amount of good she could see in others. She will be sorely missed, but her gentle love and kindness will always remain in the hearts of those who knew her.
Valerie's family would like to express their appreciation to Dr. Craig Cook and the staff of the 2nd and 6th floors of the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, along with the IHC Home Health and Hospice personnel for the loving care offered.
Valerie is survived by her loving father and mother; and her 3 brothers ( Gregory, James, Brett) and 3 sisters ( Ronda, Bonnie, Leeana). Husband (Darrel Wayne) and her four children (Sarah, Andrew, Jonathan, Joseph) 6 grandchildren; (Jaxson, Liam, Emeline, Chaucer, Parley, & Veda).
