Formerly of Alberry Plains, and with family at her side, Rosemary “Rose” Charlotte Valley (nee Cain) passed away peacefully at the Dr. John Gillis Memorial Lodge on Saturday July 9, 2022, age 81.
Beloved wife of 55 years to Philip “Buddy” Valley. Loving mother of David (Kathy), Kenneth (Cindy), Kathy Valley-Walsh (Kevin), Jeffery (Tara), Doug (Courtney), and Jennifer Valley-Byrne (Jamie).

Rose will be missed by her brother and sister-in-law Robert and Dianne Cain, her sister’s-in-law Zita Cain, Lorraine VanDyke, Kay Baird and Leah Walker. Rose will also be missed by her many nephews and nieces, cousins, extended family members and neighbours. Anyone dropping in for a visit to the farm in Alberry Plains would always be welcomed with a cup of tea and something that Rose had baked that day.
