Condolence from Karen Cook on February 4th, 2019 8:24 am

When your Mom visited the Bridgewater library, I swear the place became a little brighter. She was always upbeat, smiling and ready for a little chat. From her appearance to her energy, we all knew she was a dynamo. While some “mature” patrons shied away from using the self-checkout machine, Valerie jumped right in. I will miss seeing her. And having a conversation.

May you all gather strength from each other…

Karen (Bridgewater Library)

To the Family: We are just so saddened to hear of Valerie’s passing. We got to know Valerie through the Bridgewater Baptist Church. We always looked forward to seeing Valerie at some of the local Music Jams and Variety Shows. Valerie always came out to support us when we were part of the show. She was a beautiful lady. She shall be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Sending our deepest and most sincere sympathy to all of you.
