Valerie Anne Major (nee Cameron)

April 9, 1932 - January 7, 2022


Val passed away suddenly on the evening of January 7th at the age of 89.

She was a loving wife (of 61 years), mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be greatly missed by her family: daughters Sandra (Dwight) and Brenda (Jim). Val was Nana to Stephen, Sarah, Stephanie, Cameron and Matthew. She dearly loved her ten great-grandchildren: Shawn, Ryanne, Riley, George, Olivia, Addyson, Erik, Isabelle, Millie and Wyatt plus many nieces and nephews.

As a long time resident of the Cowichan Valley, Val was actively involved with her church – St. Peter’s Anglican. Over her many years she enjoyed helping with CeeVac’s (track and field club), Duncan Curling Club, enjoyed many trips with the Rotary Club and was a former Kinette.

Mom was known to always care for others, especially our Dad, who passed in 2014.

Donations in her memory can be made to Cowichan District Hospital.

Due to the COVID restrictions her memorial service will be a family gathering.

“Every time you have a brownie remember Val.”

Sandra and Brenda I’m so sorry to read of your mum’s passing. She was always a favorite when I was a child and even more so as an adult. Her ready smile and overall friendliness was just who she was. I know she will be dearly missed. Robin Duke

From: Dawn Fortunat

So sorry to hear of Val’s passing Sandra and Brenda. She was a wonderful lady who always had a cup of tea and goodies ready when you stopped by. She and Bob were always wonderful to us and Robyn. They are both missed. We will think of her when we have brownies and fruit cake. No one made them like Val did. Thinking of you all with Love, Dawn, Rob & Robyn

Relation: Family friend for over sixty years.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful Mom. I remember when she and Your Dad were married, then blessed with you two beautiful wee girls! I will always think of her with great fondness, and whenever I bake Christmas Cake with her recipe!
Your memories will help you through the next while, and then you’ll be able to smile at thoughts of her.
