In Loving Memory Valerie Lynn Wind Resident of San Leandro Valerie passed away on Dec. 8th, 2009 at Kaiser Santa Clara, after an almost 10 month battle against multiple critical illnesses. She was an amazing woman of quiet strength and iron will. Valerie serves us as a model of courage and determination in the face of multiple serious medical conditions. From the inside out, Valerie was a beautiful woman who will be remembered and missed everyday by her family. Valerie was preceded in death by her father William Hutton and her sister Gail Hutton. She is survived by her husband of 37 years, Bill Wind, mother Virginia Hutton, sister Deborah Rodillas, brother-in-law Sherwood Rodillas, brother-in-law Nick Wind, sister-in-law Jerri Wind and nephew Nicholas Wind. The manner in which Valerie lived and died should be a blueprint for the rest of us on how to live a life of unwavering courage and perseverance against insurmountable obstacles. All of us who knew her, friends and family have had our lives improved by knowing and loving her. Valerie graduated from Pacific High School in 1967 and also attended Chabot College. She loved her family, many friends and her quiet home life. Valerie also enjoyed a huge appreciation of almost all sports. Valerie requested no services be held for her, but we are pretty sure she would not mind a donation in her name to your favorite charity. Deercreek Funeral Service (510) 317-7890

I have fond memories of Val in High School. It saddened me (and all of us) to hear of her passing. She will be missed.

Val and I were close friends in elementary school especially. Val and Joanne Mayer lived on Hemlock in Bonaire. I thought it was the coolest block because it was at the edge of the tract of homes. It took a long time to walk over there (after biking was no longer cool).

I have fond memories of Val. We were in Girl Scouts together. She was quiet and steady, in stark contrast to my drama queen personality. I remember wishing I could be more like her, in looks and personality. I loved her family and always felt welcome in their home.

I pretty much lost touch with everyone after moving to Iowa in 1969. I am saddened by Val's passing and, even more, that I didn't take advantage of opportunities to get back in touch with her.
