Valerie Ann Thomas 

August 18, 1951 – December 31, 2020

Valerie was born in Palo Alto, California. She moved east after high school to Olathe, Kansas where she lived most of her life. Before retiring, she worked over a decade for Wal-Mart as a stocker and cashier. She moved to several places including Bentonville, Arkansas and St. Joseph, Missouri to be close to her son and his family. She finally returned to the Kansas City Area in 2017 where she lived the remainder of her life.

Valerie was a gifted artist who enjoyed painting, drawing, photography, sewing, and gardening. She was very active in her children’s schooling and was a volunteer reader at Children’s Mercy Hospital. Valerie was an avid reader and writer who owned over 800 books. She especially loved to read to and spend time with her two grandsons. 

Valerie is survived by son Dane Thomsen, his wife Chastady, and their two sons Clark and Isaac; daughter Brooke Thomsen; brother Randell Thomas, his wife Margaret, and their son Nathan and daughter Rachel; as well as other close friends.
