1962 - 2020
Passed away peacefully at Grand River Hospital after a sudden, unexpected illness on Sunday, May 31, 2020.
Val was born on Bell Island, Newfoundland and loved to reminisce about growing up there. She loved the smell of the ocean and a good feed of fish and chips. Val loved New York City and seeing Broadway shows with her daughter. She was an extraordinary woman with a laugh that could fill a room, a heart that was warm and kind, and a devoted faith that never waivered.
Val will be forever missed by her daughter Jenn with whom she shared an unbreakable bond. Val is predeceased by her parents Leslie and Violet Blundell, brother Charlie, and brother-in-law Walt. She will also be missed by her brothers and sisters: Lloyd Blundell (Naomi), Yvette Greeley, Sylvia Mercer (Charlie), Roland Blundell (Barb), Elaine McSheffery (Joe), Rex Blundell (Shirley), Ross Blundell (Dilly), Ada Sayre (Oliver), Vina Ronan (Jack), and Max George (Elsie). Valerie will also be missed by Brian Ronan (Mallory), Kris Ronan (Tacia), Tiffany Robb, Paula Blundell and numerous other nieces and nephews, including great nieces and nephews whom she held dear to her heart. Val was also so proud of Rachel, the newest addition to the family. She will also be missed by her cherished fur-baby, Sutton.
Val arrived in Cambridge from Bell Island in 1986. She spent most of her career working administratively at Lutherwood/CODA, Cambridge Memorial Hospital, and with Grand River Hospital as part of the Cambridge ACTT. Val had a passion for community; her family, friends, co-workers, and church family knew her as a loving, caring, vibrant person. This passion was evident in her faith and her love of Cambridge Community Church.
