Obituary

Valerie was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 31, 1931. She married Frank Kendall James, Jr. in Salt Lake City in August 1950. Twenty-three years and many military duty-stations around the world later, they settled in San Antonio, TX in 1973. She was a devoted wife for 50 years before Frank's death in March 2001. Valerie passed away on September 27th, at the age of 86 after a brief illness. Valerie is survived by her four children, Tamara Brizendine, Kevin James, Felicia Reese, and KB James; her 12 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; and sister, Patricia Wood, and her three children. During her long and wonderful life, Valerie's greatest joy was being surrounded by family; she and Frank hosted annual Easter, Halloween (her birthday), Thanksgiving, and Christmas festivities at their home. Valerie kept up tradition after Frank's passing and a void will be felt during the upcoming holidays as her survivors work to carry on these cherished family bonding experiences in her absence. Valerie was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where for decades she played the organ and piano for various services. She also enjoyed facilitating the work of sacred ordinances in the local Temple and sharing her knowledge of genealogy in the Family History Library. Valerie was an avid reader, loved classical music, and enjoyed spending time with her close friends, who will miss her dearly. Valerie was a generous, humble, loving, and caring woman whose absence will be sorely felt. She now goes to eternal rest and to rejoin her beloved husband, Frank, for time and all eternity.
