Valerie Ethel Woodworth

pic woodworthIt is with sadness that we announce the passing of Valerie Ethel Woodworth, beloved mother and friend. Valerie was born in August 1941 and raised on an apple farm in Berwick, Nova Scotia, where she developed a strong sense of community and a love for helping others.

In early adulthood, Valerie was offered an opportunity as a model with L'Oréal and moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she married and raised two sons. She later began a successful career in elder foster care. Her dedication to her residents and their well-being was evident in the love and care that she provided to each and every one of them.

In her retirement years, Valerie moved to Dresden, Maine, where she volunteered with the Wiscasset Senior Center and Dresden Historical Society. Her passion for helping the elderly and preserving the past continued to shine through in the work that she did.

Valerie was also known for her love of cats, and her home was filled with their purring presence. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her, but her legacy will live on through the countless lives that she touched.  She is predeceased by her husband Lewis and is survived by her two sons, Samuel of Brunswick and Gregory (Kelly) of Geneva NY. At Valerie's request, there will be no public visitation and a memorial will be scheduled by the family at a later date.

Arrangements are under the care of Kincer Funeral Home, 130 Pleasant St., Richmond, ME  04357
