In loving memory of Valerie Van
8/17/1959 - 11/10/2017

Location: Pocatello, Idaho

Visits: 2,880

This memorial was created in honor of Valerie M Van of Pocatello, Idaho. Valerie was born on August 17, 1959 in Bismarck, ND and passed unexpectedly at home the evening of November 10, 2017 at the age of 58 years young.

We are planning a Celebration of Life, Saturday November 18th, 2017 at the Clarion Inn (in Pocatello, Idaho) the Jasper Suite from 1-5pm. Please join us for an afternoon of light refreshments, stories and to celebrate the beautiful life of Valerie Van. Valerie touched everyone she came in contact with- she was gentle, kind, funny, and sometimes even mischievous. Valerie wouldn’t want us to grieve her departure- she would want us to celebrate the vibrant life she created with all of us.

Feel free to attend in the entirety or when it would most honor your relationship with Valerie.

Program:
1-2:30pm Open House
2:30-3:30pm-ish Eulogy & open mic, finishing with a toast to her life
3:30ish-5pm Open House

We would like to encourage people to bring a story to share (for a written memory book or the open mic), a photo we can keep, and to wear joyful colors to honor her lighthearted spirit if this feels right for them.

In lieu of flowers, please give a donation in Valerie’s name to: Canine Champions for Veterans in Pocatello, Idaho at https://cc4v.org/.

Valerie was loved by many and will be dearly missed by all friends and family.
