She had an eye for art and décor and enjoyed going antiquing for unique pieces for her home, and was proud of her extensive China and tea set collections. Valerie was an avid reader of romance and spy novels, a lover of spending time on the beaches of Jones Beach, and entertaining friends and family. She was involved with Living History Civil War reenactments and the Daughters of the American Revolution – Lancaster Chapter.
