Valerie Sorensen "Eternal Companion" Valerie Leah Timothy Sorensen, our loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister and daughter, passed away unexpectedly following knee surgery on August 13, 2011.
     Loved by all that knew her, Valerie was a caring person who truly blessed the lives of everyone she met. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in her ward in an array of callings ranging from Den Mother to Relief Society President.
     Valerie was born in Roosevelt, Utah, to Presley Val and Lucy Timothy on August 15, 1952. She was the oldest of seven children, and led a life of good example and service. She graduated from Kearns High School in 1970 where she met her husband, John Sorensen. The two started dating at SUSC, where they both attended college. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on November 12, 1971. They loved each other very much. Valerie and John started their life together in Cedar City, Utah, where they purchased their first home and started building their family. They raised their children in West Jordan, Utah and later built their home in Riverton.
     Valerie was an extremely talented woman who loved to scrapbook, sew, paint and do anything artistic. Her creativity brought joy to the lives she touched and made her house truly feel like a home. Loved ones received hand-made gifts and cards throughout the year that showed how much she loved them. In December 2010, Valerie retired after working 25 years for the State of Utah. She was a hard-working woman who excelled at whatever she did. Even after retirement, she did not slow down. She was always helping neighbors, tending grandchildren or visiting family members.
     Valerie loved to travel with her sweetheart, John. She liked vacationing at Bear Lake with her kids and grandchildren. She cherished her grandchildren and loved spending time with them more than any other thing in her life. She often said the reason she became a mother was to have grandchildren.
     Valerie is survived by her loving husband, John Mickael Sorensen; her four children: Mickael Gail (Allison), Stacy Leah (Robert) Haight, Becca Jo (Stewart) Brough, and Daniel John (Emi); six grandchildren: Jacob, Brooklyn, Eli, Nathan, Chloe and Knox; parents: Presley Val and Lucy Powell Timothy; siblings: Teresa (Steve) Foisy, Trina Timothy, Presley Timothy, Derk (Tami) Timothy, Melanie (Don) Mullen, and James Timothy; in-laws: Jane (Jim) Keech, Gaylene Didericksen, Carolyn (Chad) Rappleye, Susan (Eldred) Jensen, Jay (Virginia) Sorensen; and dozens of nieces and nephews.
     Upon passing from this life, Valerie was welcomed into the arms of her parents-in-law: Gail and Olga Sorensen; in-laws: Craig Wall, Marial Sorensen and Larry Diderickson; grandparents; and countless other relatives who preceded her in death.
