Obituary of Valerie Marie Weinkauf
Please share a memory of Valerie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Valerie was the second oldest child born to Walter & Betty Fisher on May 30, 1951 in Provost, Alberta.
She grew up on the family farm near Cactus Lake with 3 siblings – Marilyn, Jim & Dan.
In her younger years she enjoyed curling, discing, golfing and socializing with friends and family.
Valerie married Joe Weinkauf on August 26, 1972 and were blessed with a daughter, Lynette.
Mom had various jobs over the years at The Royal Bank, the Co-op & the Red Rooster to name a few. She always loved working with numbers so decided to do books out of her home. She did bookkeeping for various companies over the years until recently when her health no longer allowed her to. You could usually find her working in her office with a cup of coffee at any hour of the day. She was dedicated to her work and was extremely organized and always kept things up to date.
She loved listening to music and having jam sessions with family & friends, doing puzzles, visiting, and helping others however she could.
Mom was extremely proud of her grandchildren and cherished time spent with them.
Her battle with cancer was fought with bravery, hope and determination but sadly she lost her fight on December 7, 2020.
Valerie leaves behind her daughter, Lynette (Kevin) Steinhubel; grandchildren Foster and Devyn Steinhubel; sister, Marilyn (†David) Steve-Zorn; brothers, Jim (Bernadette) Fisher and Dan (Janet) Fisher; all Weinkauf Families; nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband, Joe; parents, Walter & Betty Fisher; brother-in-law, David Zorn; and nephew, Quinton Fisher.
A special thank you to Dr. Erasmus and the wonderful staff at the Provost Health Center; your care and attention to mom will never be forgotten.
