In loving memory of the late Valerie Patricia Ann Sowerby who sadly passed away on 9th February 2015
Val as she liked to be called was born Valerie Patricia Ann Keefe on 17/11/1944 to John and Mabel Keefe
Val met the love of her life Peter Sowerby when she was 14 in Coronation Park Cafe in Crosby.
Seven years later they married at St Frideswydes Church in Thornton
Val and Pete as they where known to friends had two children Ian Peter and Sharon Patricia.
Sharon tragically passing away aged 26 left a girl Charlotte-Anne Sowerby aged 4 whom Val and Pete raised as their own daughter.
Val was well known around the Crosby and Waterloo area and her career in the Estate Agents industry brought her into contact with many people over the years all of whom described her as "a special lady"
Val loved her family fiercely and some of her favourite times where spent on holiday in Wales and the West Country.
Val when at home loved to knit and every new baby in the road she lived in received shawls,coats and mittens in various colours.
Val was a fun loving lady who always had a smile and a kind word for those she came into contact with.A wicked sense of humour ,a caring nature a positive outlook and a will of iron sums up the person she was.
In later life her positivity and strong will was tested as she fought back from cancer and sailed through a liver transplant.
She described her last 5 years with her husband and best friend Pete as "some of the happiest times of my life".
A beautiful wife,amazing mother and loving grandmother Vals passing has left a hole in this world that can never be filled.
Good night and God bless Val/Mum/Nanny until we see you again you can rest in peace knowing you are always in our hearts.
