Val was born in Amery, WI on February 12, 1951 and grew up on a dairy farm in Clayton, WI. After graduating high school and attending beauty school she moved to Iron River, WI where she met her loving husband of 50 years, Jim. Shortly after they moved to Bridgeview, Illinois and raised their daughter Pamela. Val worked as a beautician at multiple area nursing homes for over 40 years. She enjoyed socializing with the residents just as much as she enjoyed doing their hair.
Val appreciated any social activity she could get involved in, chili and rib cookoffs, family reunions, graduations, birthdays, promotional ceremonies; anything that had to do with people, she was there. Val always kept track of everyone’s special days; phone calls and cards were a must for her. She really enjoyed anything to do with family and friends. Whether it be family vacations, trips op north to Wisconsin, or being with her close friends at her and Jim’s favorite place, the Roadhouse.
All throughout her courageous battle with cancer she remained selfless, always thinking about everyone else and how they are doing. She’ll be greatly missed and never forgotten.
Val will be laid to rest at a later date at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.
