In celebration of
Valerie Fleuré Shepherd (née Jarvis)
April 24, 1934 –
June 17, 2024
It is with heavy hearts that we share that Valerie passed away at the age of 90 at her home in the village of Erin Meadows, Mississauga on June 17, 2024. Valerie was born in Toronto, Ontario to Clarence and Fleuré (Branciere) Jarvis. Valerie lived in Etobicoke most of her life, where she attended Lambton-Kingsway JMS and Etobicoke Collegiate before entering the nursing profession at Wellesley Hospital. She graduated with the Class of 1956 and became a nurse the same year. She kept in close touch with her nursing classmates and attended many reunions throughout her life.
Valerie married George in Trinity College Chapel in 1963. In 1964, they joined the parish of St. George’s on-the-Hill, where Valerie served as youth counselor and as director and president of St. George’s Nursery School.
Valerie enjoyed reading, crafts and cooking. She and George enjoyed many trips to the Caribbean, England and Portugal, as well as many years of renting cottages in Muskoka. She will be most remembered for her various artistic talents. There wasn’t a craft she didn’t try to excel in, from sewing to knitting to building dollhouses and miniatures. She loved sharing her talents and loved seeing her daughters and granddaughters continue her love of creating beautiful things. Her many crafts will be lovingly cherished by family and friends.
In recent years, Valerie has struggled with increasingly poor mobility and health, which meant she could no longer do what she loved. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff who took special care of her at Erin Meadows.
She will be forever loved and deeply missed by many, but especially by her loving and devoted husband of 60 years, George, her daughters Anne Heath (Andy) and Carol, and her beloved twin granddaughters Sarah and Katie Heath.
Funeral services will be held at St. George’s on the Hill, 4600 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke on Monday, June 24, 2024 at 11:00 AM. Reception will follow in the church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Arthritis Society of Canada.
