Val met her grandson for the first time a week or so before Val died in the fall of 2009.  Dakota, Val's daughter, had to bury her mother way too soon.  Dakota and friends of Val celebrated a life Val designed with zest, creativity, incredible talent as a singer and writer.  Her sense of humor and bundle of emotions made Val a unique and memorable friend. May she rest in peace.

Valerie Brown


Valerie Brown "Grandma" Valerie Brown, born March 4, 1952, passed away Jan. 20, 2009, after a valiant 18 year struggle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She is preceded in death by her mother, Ruth Ann Penrose Larson Brown Leighty and father, Thomas Elmer Brown. Valerie was a talented writer, singer and actress. The Arts were the center and greatest joy of her life. She was an advocate for human rights, womens health and reproductive rights. Valerie valued all things known and unknown, she was a teacher and a student of Goddess /God in all her many names. We will always remember her beautiful dimpled smile and fastidious fashion sense-glamorous hats and matching shoes. Her spirit lives on in all whose lives she touched. She is survived by her daughter Dakota Ann Brown; daughter-in-law Julia Jackson; grandson Seneca Jackson and five siblings: Linda Sutton, Kathleen Jones, Sheila Penrose, Thomas Brown and Claudia Brown. Memorial services will be held Sat. January 24th 2009, 11 a.m. at the Innerlight Center, 4508 S. 500 E. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Innerlight Center.
