Valerie Y. Petty
April 29, 1935 - October 27, 2015
Valerie Y. Petty passed away peacefully on October 27, 2015. Mom was born on April 29, 1935 to Ralph and Valerie Vance in Rushville, Illinois. She married the absolute love of her life, Ralph E. Petty, on February 5, 1950 at the tender age of 14. They had almost 64 years of loving and caring for each other before Dad's passing in December of 2013. Mom's life was spent caring for their children, going fishing and camping, and listening to Dad tell tall tales. Mom and Dad were inseparable. If you saw one of them, the other one was always nearby.
