After the death of their father, Gordon Vogt and upon her mother’s second marriage to George Dunn, the family relocated into the Shuswap . Val loved the simplicity and beauty of Sicamous, and returned back to raise her own children there while working at various jobs in town (Super 8 Motel, Tim Hortons, Askews and Three Valley Gap)
Music was a joy in Val’s life .She was a gifted singer with a keen ear that was attentive to others, the sign of a good listener. Valarie was dedicated to her family, putting their priorities first before her own. Jordan and Vanessa grew up in her love and she knew they loved her in return. Through tough health challenges, Val exemplified graciousness, generosity, an orderly gentle courage. Many thanks for the comfort and care given to Val by her doctors, nurses and caregivers at Bastion Place.
