Valerie Renee Raymond, age 46, peacefully passed away on April 10th while she was surrounded by family in Cape Coral, Florida. She was born in Beckley, West Virginia but spent the last 26 years living in Southwest Florida.
Valerie was kind-hearted and generous, always offering a hand to those in need. She was a dedicated mother to her three children Alexis (25), Savannah (23), and Nicholas (18). She could always be found spending time with her dogs with a good book in hand while watching Judge Judy. She loved to travel to new countries, share animal videos on Facebook, and she would always call to tell you all of the celebrity news she read online. The world is now a more beautiful place because she was in it.
In her passing, she was reunited with her brother Adam, Aunt Debbie, grandfather Dutch, and her Aunt Paula. She is survived by her children Alexis, Savannah, and Nicholas; her parents Karen and Les Grantham, father Rick Meadows, and her sister Kristen, along with cousins, nieces, and nephews.
During this time, services are still being prepared. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Harry Chapin Food Bank.
