CURRIE, Valerie Marie (née Connors) - It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Valerie Currie (née Connors) at the age of 70 on Friday, October 23, 2020 at Lakeridge Health Ajax, peacefully in the presence of her children.
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 19, 1950, Valerie grew up with eight siblings in a close-knit family.
She loved Newfoundland as her home but left at 18 years old to move to Ontario with the love of her life, Roger Currie, whom she later married and had two children, Laurie & Shane.
Valerie always kept her family, children, and grandchildren close and shared in their happiness and pain.
Valerie was loved and will be missed by all who knew her.
Predeceased by her husband Roger, her parents Timothy and Patricia, her brothers Bartholomew, Timothy, Mike, Fabian, and infant brother Brent and sister Michelle.
Leaving behind to mourn her loss are daughter Laurie Currie and son Shane Currie, her grandchildren Tyler, Jessica, Nicholas, Nathan and Ethan, her brothers Brian Connors (Heather) and Patrick, sisters Evangeline (John Tucker) and Patricia (Peter Prowse), sister-in-law Lorraine Connors (Timothy) and a large circle of relatives and friends.
A loving mother so tender and kind, what a beautiful memory you left behind.
While we are devastated by this loss, we take comfort in knowing you are together with Dad/Grandpa to celebrate 50 years of marriage and love on October 24, 2020.
May you dance together forever on the wings of angels. We miss you and love you so much.
Cremation arrangements entrusted to McINTOSH-ANDERSON-KELLAM FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa (905-433-5558).
Donations in memory of Valerie to Canadian Cancer Society or SickKids Foundation would be appreciated.

Come with Me
God saw you getting tired
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
Your tender hands at rest.
God took you Home to prove to us
He only takes the best.
