Ms. Valerie was a wonderful human being. Her jovial presence and her job brought everyone to see her at least once a day, and she always had a zinger ready to tell. I know that she loved her son and loved being around her friends at work so much. She will be missed. RiP Val.
A great person gone way to soon. She was a classmate and neighbor who was always fun to be around!

Many of you may remember Valerie Coners, and I’m sad to report that she passed away Friday September 27. Val and I were both from the little town of Mountain Lake MN, so I’ve known her most of my life. She was fun to visit with whenever I was at 801 or Data Park, and I think she enjoyed giving me a hard time as well! Val will be missed! Here is her obituary:

Valerie was a good friend to me. I only knew her for a short time but she was a very good friend and I will miss her. I send a message to Josh I hope your grieving is short lived we now your mom is in a better place most likely she is dancing with her parents and God has his daughter. I know this doesn't make her passing easy but I know where she is and we will see her again.
So sad to hear of Val's passing. Josh & family you are in our prayers...loved your mom, we worked at Time Warner together and she was always smiling and ready to make you laugh...she will be missed.
So sorry to hear she has passed away. Loved her smile, she will be missed!
Oh, how hard it is to have a loved one leave the family behind! I am praying for you, knowing how you miss Valerie. She was a sweet person, and I enjoyed talking with her at Grev family reunions. May God comfort and strengthen you.
I'm so sorry about Val passing away. I knew her from Ability Building Center and would always see her downtown sometimes. I knew she would always tease me, but in a good way, just like Josh does to me. Josh, I feel so bad for you and I'll give you a hug. Your mom is in the loving arms of Jesus. From Nicole Hoffbeck
I can't believe my Aunt Val is gone I'm going to miss you even more then ever. Josh I'm so sorry God call her home so fast in life. I guess God needed her up there so he call for her to come. I wish I would got to say goodbye I love you Aunt Val and cousin josh
