August 2, 1960 – June 7, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Valerie Louise Berdahl on Thursday, June 7, 2012 after a courageous 10 1/2 year battle with cancer. Surrounded by loving family she finally found freedom.
Val is survived by her two sons, Shane and Luke Berdahl, her partner Barry McKay, her parents Dorothy and Bob Stewart and siblings Terry Sparling (Lance) and Dan Stewart (Carolyn).
Valerie made her boys the first priority in her life, a truly incredible mother. Val was an employee of the CBE for 21 years and was greatly respected and loved by all staff, and was honored by them with many awards and achievements.
