She lived a life full of purpose and joy–semicolon– counting family, friends, and colleagues as her greatest joys. She enjoyed a long career in social work, specializing in child protection and foster care.

She is survived by her mother, Helen Nahorney–semicolon– sisters: Eleanor (Ken) Fisher, and Jeanette (Michael) Amico–semicolon– brothers: Mike (Darlene), and Steve (Joanne)–semicolon– sisters-in-law, Lynn (Arnold) Maki, and Kathi (Martin) Lewis Curtis–semicolon– nieces: Brianna and Lyndsay Weir, Anita LaHay, and Amanda Maki–semicolon– nephew, Adam Maki–semicolon– her dear friend, Linda McNeil, along with numerous other family members and many, many friends–semicolon– and by her beloved dog, Bugsey.
Valorie was predeceased by her father, William (Bill) Nahorney, and her brother, Lorne.
