Valerie Myatt

Born In: Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada
Born: July 22nd, 1960

Passed in: Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada
Passed on: October 8th, 2011

Born in Dawson Creek, British Columbia on Friday, July 22, 1960 to Richard and Teresa Edinger.
Growing up was spent holidaying, camping, and roasting wieners in the winter. Val always enjoyed a good campfire. Every Sunday morning breakfast was from an Easybake oven followed by family visits to Chetwynd, Fort St John or Hudson Hope.
Val spent most of her life in Dawson Creek, but spent some time in Cranbrook and Quesnel, as well as in Grande Prairie where she earned her Hairdressing degree with honors. She found her calling in life with hairdressing as she was a people person and loved helping make people as beautiful on the outside as they were on the inside.
In 1978 her daughter Pamyla was born followed by Alanna in 1982. Being a single parent, Val was very involved in both her daughters’ lives. Her children remember many exciting holidays going to Prince George or Edmonton. Similar to many families, Pamyla’s and Alanna’s bonds to their mother only grew stronger once they left home and learned some of life’s little lessons.
In 1996, after many years of service at Brass Scissors, Val decided that she wanted to spend more time at home. So, she left her long time job at Brass Scissors and opened up her own home-based hair salon called Val’s Place. Most of her clientele followed her to her new salon, as her customers were more than just clients, they were also her friends. She loved cutting and styling people’s hair while they shared their life stories with her and she shared her stories about her grandchildren! Customers were usually greeted at the door by Val’s furry family: Bebe, Tisha, and Rascal, and then later by Rusty and Murphy.
Val was a loving and proud Grandma. She was present when all three of her grandchildren were born: Orianna in 2003, Aaryn in 2005, and Sabastian in 2006. With each new grandbaby Valerie was more ecstatic, and her heart knew no bounds. She loved spending quality time with them and they always enjoyed having her around. There will always be a special place in each of her grandchildren’s hearts that will solely remain Gramma Val’s.
Valerie spent her spare time in her flower beds and vegetable garden. She lovingly tended her row of sunflowers against the back of her house. She also enjoyed reading a good book, building puzzles, knitting and cooking big holiday meals.
On October 8, 2011 Val peacefully passed away in her sleep at the
age of 51.
She leaves to mourn her two daughters Pamyla (Bruce) Christensen and Alanna (Tyler) Marion, mother Teresa Edinger, father Richard (Ruth) Edinger, grandchildren Orianna and Aaryn Christensen and Sabastian Marion, brother Randy (Shannon) Edinger, nieces Alysha (Darcy) Keithley and Tamara Edinger, and nephew Rylan Edinger along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Val was predeceased by her grandparents Pearl and Lloyd Edinger, George and Mary Billey, and Mike Kilarowski.
Throughout her life she held a special place in her heart for her family and will always be remembered for being thoughtful and caring… and of course for her infectious laugh.
A memorial service was held for Valerie Friday, October 14, 2011
at the Bergeron Funeral Chapel, inurnment followed at Brookside Cemetery, Dawson Creek, British Columbia.
Arrangements were entrusted to Bergeron Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd.
