St. Cloud - Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11am Saturday, May 22, 2021 at the Williams Dingmann Funeral Home in St. Cloud for Valerie Meinz, 96, of St. Cloud who died Tuesday March 23, 2021 at Quiet Oaks Hospice House in St. Augusta. The Rev. LeRoy Scheierl will officiate and burial will be in Calvary Cemetery in St. Cloud. Friends may call 1 hour prior to services Saturday at the funeral home in St. Cloud.

Valerie was born on December 18, 1924 in Foley, Minnesota to Theodore and Veronica (Tadych) Hulizka. She grew up on her parents' farm near Gilman, MN. Val married the love of her life, Earl Meinz, on January 10, 1953, at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Gilman. Val served for many years as a Deputy Clerk of Court for the Stearns County Court system. She was an active member of Saint Mary's Cathedral and later Saint Paul's parishes in St. Cloud and was a past member of Daughters of Isabella, Christian Women and Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary.

Valerie enjoyed travel with family and friends, volunteering, reading, doing puzzles, bowling, walking and cooking for family. She especially treasured the time spent with her family. Valerie was an amazing mother, raising her children single-handed from an early age, and was active in helping raise her grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, George (Jean) Meinz of Saint Cloud and Gary (Thuy) Meinz of Lutsen; grandchildren Eric, Kristin, Daniel, Veronica and Lucas Meinz; great grandchild Jacob McKenney; and many nieces and nephews.

Valerie was preceded in death by her parents; husband Earl in 1961; and siblings, Barbara Pietrzak, Marie Hulizka, and Alois Hulizka.
