Valerie touched many lives, she loved to smile and always found the positive side of every situation, her cup was always half full.


Her hobbies were cooking, gardening and she loved kayaking and her dogs.


Sadly Valerie lost her battle with cancer, but she will not be forgotten by her family and friends.


Valerie was preceded by her father Alfred Postill and her brother Ross Postill. She is survived by her loving mother Rose, stepdaughter Tina, aunts, uncles, cousins and her many many loving friends.
