HOUSTON, TEXAS/ PRICE, UTAH-Valerie Lynn Bruno was born June 5, 1958 to Pete and Doris Bruno. A beloved daughter, sister, niece, aunt, cousin, and friend,
Valerie had a unique love for life, which she shared by serving others. She delighted in knitting handmade toys, afghans, and clothing for her dear family members, and she sported a playful personality that made her every child's best friend.
Valerie's service also extended to reading to children with disabilities and contributing her talents to the Humanitarian Center and Newborns in Need. Her open arms and selfless attitude made each person in her life feel special and loved.
Valerie graduated from the University of Utah in drama. For more than 20 years, she has been a dedicated employee for the Williams Company, a home to many valued friends and co-workers whom the family thanks for offering great support in Valerie's life and in her passing.
Valerie had a strong belief in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a testimony in the Savior. Her faith offers peace at her passing on June 9, 2008 from a sudden illness, which allowed her to offer more service in being a donor to others.
