Nicholl ValerieNICHOLL, Valerie (nee Crawford) - Passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home on Wednesday April 22nd 2020 at the age of 75.  

She was healthy and full of life.   

She walked over 10, 000 steps every day and got in bike rides in her neighbourhood when she could. Jason and Kelley talked to her via FaceTime 2-3 times a day each.  

Her passing was unexpected and a shock to the family. 

Loving mother of Jason Nicholl of Pickering and Kelley Grose and her husband Tim of Brooklin.


Grandmother of Kai and Skyley whom she adored and actively participated in every stage of their life. Valerie will be forever missed by her grand-pups Diesel and Chewy. Survived by her sister Dorothy Kast and her husband John, along with her many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by her brother Malcolm and her husband James.

Valerie loved her family, her extended family her dear friends and neighbours.

She was the most kind, caring, beautiful person with the biggest heart. She will be missed every second of everyday. We cannot imagine life with her not in it but will hold onto our memories and moments we shared together forever. She was not only our best friend but we were lucky to call her Mom / Gramma.   

The next time you are out for a walk or a bike ride with the sun shining, think of her as she will be right be beside you. 

We love you Grams, loads of huggy bears and kissey faces always and forever!  

In memory of Valerie, memorial donations to SickKids would be appreciated.
