Valerie Georgina Hooker

November 29, 1942 – June 29, 2015

With heavy hearts the family announces the peaceful passing of Valerie at the Bulkley Lodge in Smithers. Valerie was born in Sussex, England to Violet (Vi) and Alex Smith. She had a zest for life that included bowling, curling, and golf (Joan thank you for many good times), her grandchildren, annual Easter egg hunts, fishing trips and tobogganing the hills, to name a few.

Valerie leaves behind her husband Bill; sons Clifford (Angela), Glenn (Liza); daughter Carrie (Tom); grandchildren Robert, Kelly (Carrie), Amanda (Gordon), Cole (Jessy) and Tiana; great grandchildren Damien, Lucas, Xaydyn, Riel, Jacob, Kelsey and Alyssa. Valerie will also be sadly missed by her sister Sandy and nieces Cindy and Tammi and their families in Kamloops and her sister-in-law Roberta Bodger.

There are two dates in time that they’ll carve on your stone. And everyone knows what they mean. What’s more important is the time that is known in that little dash there in between – That little dash there in between.
