FLORIA “ANNE” VALIN, beloved wife of the late Arthur “Art” Valin, passed away peacefully at St. Therese Villa, on Thursday, February 3, 2022, at the age of 85 years.
Anne was born April 28, 1936, in Flos, Ontario, where she grew up on a farm with her two brothers, Allen Richardson (deceased) and James Richardson. When she was young, she met Frank Jacklin, whom she later married. They moved to Shaughnessy, Alberta, where they started to attend The Church of God regularly. When Frank passed away on August 29, 2003, Anne moved to Lethbridge. There she met Arthur (Art) Valin, and they were married on June 9, 2010, until his passing on February 26, 2015.
Anne loved growing plants, gardening, knitting, rug-hooking and reading. She was a noticeably quiet and private person, and had an incredibly soft heart towards animals, especially cats.
Anne will be missed by her friends in her church and Frank’s grandson Angus (Wendy) Jacklin in Ontario.
A Graveside Service will be held at ROYAL VIEW CEMETERY, 5920 – 13 Street North, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, February 11, 2022 at 11:00 A.M.
