Valerie Ann Beres (nee Mack), 81 passed away peacefully, surrounded by members of her loving family after a lengthy battle with dementia. She was born January 22, 1941 to parents Francis and Evelyn Mack in Cleveland, OH.
Valerie attended Mayfield High School and Ohio University. She enjoyed hiking, riding her bike, the great outdoors, all animals, the fresh air, reading, puzzles, and the beach. Valerie spent much time planning and working with the Parks and Recreation Departments of Kirtland and Chardon along with the Athletic Boosters program. She was also an avid fan of all the Cleveland sports teams. But most of all, she loved being surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren…and eating ice cream!
She is survived by cherished children Shirlee Wadlow (Randy), Michael (Gerri), Roy (Jeanne), Daniel (Lori), Audra Avarello (C.J.); grandchildren Brandee (Austin), Allie, Rebecca, Brian, Ben, Megan, Jessica, Gina and Natalie.
She is preceded in death by her parents; brother Roy Mack, and dear grandson Nicholas.
