To know her was to love her.
The family of Valerie are devastated at the tragic loss on December 31, 2020, after a courageous battle with mental illness. Predeceased by her parents Mary and Gerald Dwyer and her babies, John Carlos and Charlee Valerie Maloney.
Valerie was born in Gander, NL in September of 1963, and grew up in a family of ten siblings. She and Charlie met and made a life together, eventually moving to St. John’s where she worked for twenty years as a Telecommunications Operator with the RCMP.
Valerie, despite her pain, wasn’t her illness. She was a friend to many. She showered her friends and family with love and thoughtfulness, and was there for everyone.
Her witty sense of humour made her a fun loving companion. If someone was in need they wouldn’t have to ask; she was there. Her first instinct was to be kind, it came naturally to her. Those of us who were loved by her were fortunate; her love was abundant.
Leaving to mourn her loving husband of 34 years, Charlie Maloney. He was with her every step of her struggle along with her beloved dog, Roxie,
Her siblings and spouses, Wayne and Joan Dwyer, Don and Ann Dwyer, Queen and Dave Blundon, Eileen and John Walsh, Jim and Loretta Dwyer, David and Marilyn Dwyer, Pat Dwyer, Mary and Sam Parsons, Maureen and Barry Clout, Ness and Dave Skinner.
Her in-laws Ellen (Nellie) Maloney, Don and Dorothy Maloney, Dave and Leeann Maloney, Rhonda and Scott Davidge.
Valerie had a very special relationship with her many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews, who will deeply miss her. Everyone of her nieces and nephews will say that she loved them like her own, and they all had a special relationship with her.
Valerie had deep, meaningful and long relationships with her many friends and colleagues. Their support along the way has to be acknowledged; the outpouring of love helped her more than you can imagine. Thank you, you know who you are.
