Obituary for Valerie Lyn Leveille (Rivers)

LEVEILLE, Valerie (nee Rivers)
Valerie lived a life full of love, curiosity, travel, and dancing. She repeatedly told family and caregivers that “it’s all good”, and that phrase sums up her approach to life. She felt very blessed and died peacefully a few days after her 68th birthday. She was married to the love of her life, best friend, and dance partner, Yves Leveille, for 46 years. She was intensely loved by her children, Christian and Rebecca, their spouses, Heather and Joe, and her grandchildren, Jakob, Gracelyn, and Luke. Valerie taught for 24 years in the Grand Erie District School Board. She cared for her students deeply and her passion helped inspire them to become their best selves. Valerie was active in the community, volunteering as a member of the St. Patrick’s Refugee Council and St. Patrick’s School Parents’ Council, as a tutor with the Hamilton Literacy Council and North End Community Centre, as an executive and leader for Brownies, Cub Scouts, and Caledonia Gymmies, and also as a library storyteller. Additionally, she was passionate about conservancy and environmental causes. She rescued bats and was involved with Bats Conservation International and climbed up the CN Tower multiple times with her family to fundraise for the World Wildlife Foundation. Her sense of adventure led her around the world with family and friends. Some of her many memorable travels included China, Iceland, The Isle of Man, and England. Valerie and her family would like to sincerely thank many wonderful caregivers for their warmth, dedication and attentive care: Dr. Christopher Hillis, Shannon Hilton, the staff at the Juravinski Cancer Centre and Hospital, the staff at the Dr. Bob Kemp hospice, and Dr. Cloete. In lieu of flowers, mourners are encouraged to make a donation to a charity of their choice. Visitation will be held from 2-4pm and 7-9pm on Friday, August 10th at Miller Funeral Chapel (28 Caithness St. in Caledonia). The funeral will be held on Saturday August 11, at 11am in the funeral chapel and a reception will follow nearby (from 12pm-2pm).
