As a military spouse she lived all over the country to include San Diego, CA; Jacksonville, FL; Virginia Beach, VA; Oviedo, FL and Denham Springs, LA.

Val was an active member of the Usher Board, a Sunday School teacher, and an all-around willing participant in all church programs. In 2003, she joined Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Oviedo, FL where she continued to serve faithfully. There Val assisted with church finances and assisted with their business affairs. She briefly attended college before finding her a career in banking. She spent over 25 years working for financial institutions. She started behind the teller line as the first smiling face the customers would see and Val quickly rose to the position of Teller Supervisor, training others to exceed at their craft. She held several other positions during her illustrious career culminating as an Assistant Vice President for Bank of America. Val retired from banking in 2005. She loved the simple things in life. Time with family, be it children, grandchildren, or siblings. Val recently moved back to her home state of Louisiana and looked forward to spending additional quality time with her siblings.
