Valerie R. Ward
1935 ∼ 2017
Valerie R. Ward, 82, of Marstons Mills, died June 13, 2017. She was the significant other of Richard Raines for many years.
Valerie was born in Old Town, Maine to Freeland and Josephine (Goodnow) Ramsdell. She was an avid reader, excellent cook, and incredible mother. Kind, generous, and loving was the core of who she was as a person. Doing needlework, particularly quilting, and going to the beach to sunbath were some of her favorite things to do.
In addition to Richard, she is survived by her children, Heidi Watanabe of Idaho, Stacey Ward of Idaho, Billy Ward of Idaho, John Ward of Colorado, and Wendy Van Curen of New York; 11 grandchildren; and her pets, Ezra George, Tyrone Lee, and Paris Marie.
Funeral services will be at a later date.
