Help the Mayer family with memorial for Valerie

Valerie Mayer(Knowlton) was a daughter, a mom, an aunt, a friend, an animal lover, jewelry enthusiast and SO much more. She was everyone's biggest cheerleader and had the kindest heart. There was nothing she loved more than raising her 3 daughters. 

Unfortunately, she passed away at 1058AM on Sunday Dec 13th, 2020 due to complications from COVID Pneumonia. 

In order to help alleviate the costs, her family is requesting your help to give her a proper Celebration of Life Service. 

Initial funds will go to the memorial, cremation costs,  and flying her daughter in the Navy home to attend. All additional funds raised will go towards 2 things: donating to a local animal shelter (it was what she specifically requested for Christmas) and to creating beautiful jewelry with her ashes for her 3 daughters to wear (as she was such a fanatic of handmade jewelry). 

If you are able to donate financially, anything is greatly appreciated during these heartbreaking times. If what you have to offer are prayers, condolences, a share on social media of this link, that is more than enough as well. Thank you for your love and support to our family throughout all of this. We have never felt more loved and cared for, and we are eternally grateful for that. 

We rest knowing that she is no longer in pain and is spending time with her father in Heaven who she missed more than anything. God Bless you. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
