Obituary of Valerie Bernice Barber
Valerie Bernice Barber
(February 17, 1951 - March 24, 2022)
Valerie Bernice Barber of Rosalind, Alberta, formerly of Irma, passed away on Thursday, March 24, 2022 at the age of 71 years.
Valerie Bernice Barber was a loving wife, mother, nana, sister and friend. She left this world after a long courageous battle with cancer March 24th, 2022. She was 71 years old.
She was born to Alec and Faye Vert on February 17th, 1951. Her husband Gary was her high school sweetheart and together they had three children Dana (Greg), Darryl, and Dallas (Shannon). She was nana to nine grandchildren and great nana to one great granddaughter.
Growing up, her house was full of dogs, cats, and the occasional bunny and bird. The yard was always full of beautiful flowers. There is so much we will miss: her smell (Chanel with a touch of menthol), her honesty, wit and love.
She passed away peacefully with Gary by her side as he's been for 54 years. We would like to thank the staff of Daysland Hospital for their exceptional care and kindness.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband Gary; children Dana (Greg) Green of Fanny Bay, BC, Darryl Barber of Viking, and Dallas (Shannon) Barber of Rosalind; nine grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and sisters Callie (Wayne) Barber of Innisfail, and Brenda (Dave) Haley of Red Deer.
Valerie was predeceased by her grandmother Clara Robbins, her parents Alec and Faye Vert and her infant granddaughter Ellese Barber.
No formal service will be held.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Val's memory may be made to the Daysland Health Centre, Palliative Care Unit.
