MARYSVILLE, Wash. — Valerie Kay (Bruns) Voris went to be with our Savior on Oct. 5, 2019. She was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in June 2019. She lived her last days like she wanted, visiting with family and friends.
A celebration of life will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, at the Hadley Hall in Arlington, Wash. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marysville Community Church Benevolent Fund.
Valerie was born in Grand Island on Aug. 5, 1963. Her family moved to Yakima, Wash., where Val graduated from Davis High School. Val went on to college to become an X-ray Tech. She worked as an x-ray technician in Yakima before moving to Marysville, Wash., and working at Providence Breast Center as a Mammography Technician.
Val also attended Marysville Community Church and was an active part of the study groups there. Val had many wonderful friends that she talked about and loved dearly.
Val loved life and staying active. She loved spending time with her family. She loved going to the mountains, vacations and she so loved the beach. She had hobbies that included making jewelry, sewing and flower gardening. Val loved everyone she met and everyone who met her loved her just the same. She always had a smile for someone and knew how to make us all laugh. She truly was the life of the party to many.
Val is survived by her son, Brad Voris; her brothers, Darcy (wife Donna) and Wendell (wife Debbie); her nephews, Matt and Josh; and niece, Becky. She is also survived by her previous husband and friend, Jeff, who took wonderful care of Val in her last days.
Val was preceded in death by her parents, Bud and Dolores Bruns (Juarcek), and her sister, Anna Jo Utt (Bruns).
Val loved the Lord so very much and loved to talk to others about how Christ changed her life. And her hope was that through her death at least one person would come to know the wonderful Savior that she was looking forward to meet someday. And she finally has!
