RUBLER, Valerie Nedelsky

passed away Monday, Sept. 3, 2018 at the age of 82. She and her devoted husband, Michael, spent more than 49 years building a life together and raising three children. She ran a household and cooked for every occasion.She was a no-frills lady who wasn't afraid of hard work. She spent 15 years at the Department of Defense as a contract negotiator. She returned to the workforce when her kids got older, working in an administrative capacity at University of Miami and retiring from there after a 16 year career. She took great pride in her children, the journalist, the psychologist-turned-supermom and the Air Force master sergeant. She cheered tirelessly for the Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes, but never let her loyalty lapse for her hometown Chicago teams, notably the Cubs and Bears. Later in life came her true loves, her three grandsons. She delighted in every drawing, every awards ceremony and every impromptu living room performance. She is survived by her husband, Michael; her children, Diane, Julie (Eric) and Steve; and grandsons, Beckett, Cameron and Parker. A memorial will be held Saturday, Sept. 22 from 1-5 pm at:
