In loving memory of Valerie Dickson who passed away on Monday, May 27th, 2019 at Pioneer Manor at the age of 75. Beloved mother of Pamela (Steve) Goodale, Patricia (Alex) Cameron, Wendy (Dave Loverly) Somerville and Virginia (Brian Cameron) Somerville. Cherished grandmother of Darrin (Amanda), Christopher, Brittany (Spenser), Steven, Jonathan, Sean, Tarissa and great grandmother of Everly, Darrin and Amanda expecting second great-grandchild in August. Dear sister of James (Joyce) Dickson, Ed Dickson, Moira Dickson and Judith Dickson (youngest sibling - predeceased). Lovingly remembered by Lee Dickson. Valerie was in the Canadian Armed Forces for 2 years before starting a family. She loved to sew and would often make clothes for herself and her children when they were growing up. She loved her family very much and you would often hear her boast about her daughters and grandchildren and loved sports, playing on a women’s slowpitch team when her girls were teenagers and play pool. You would never catch her turning down a game...or losing one for that matter. A memorial service will be held in the R. J. Barnard Chapel, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury on Saturday, July 13th, 2019 at 11:30am. Friends may gather in the chapel after 11:15am. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated.
