On Sunday, September 23, 2018, Valerie Haliburda Ernst, loving wife and mother, passed away at her home at the age of 73 after courageously battling lifelong illnesses.

Valerie was born on January 15, 1945 in Romulus, Michigan. She was one of eleven children born to Thomas and Margaret. Valerie married her beloved Clyde on June 23, 1967 in Michigan and raised two wonderful children together. She spent her working years as an operator for Michigan Bell and AT&T earning numerous awards for her dedication and service. Valerie was passionate about crafting, hosting tea parties, and gardening which brought her joy even when health struggles were difficult. Valerie was extremely artistic, creative, and never afraid to get her hands dirty with a DIY project. She often attended craft shows with her daughter Jennifer to showcase their handmade baby bonnets and Victorian hats.

Valerie’s family will always remember her as an incredibly thoughtful, supportive, and loving wife and mother. She was loved greatly by her immediate family: husband Clyde, daughter Jennifer, and son Dale and his wife Kate. Valerie will be deeply missed by her many friends and family.
