Valorie Jean (Rohrbaugh) Reedy was born on April 19, 1955, the first of four children, to Charles Ross and Mary Louise (Batman) Rohrbaugh in Dodge City, Kansas. Valorie passed from this Earth on August 21, 2023 at the age of 68.
Valorie married her best friend and the love of her life, Gaylen John Reedy, on December 31, 1979. Val and Gaylen have four children. Val enjoyed every minute of time with her family. She was very proud of her role as Grammy. Whether it was birthdays, holidays, sports, movies, shopping trips, going out to eat, especially at Los Cocos, or simply spending time together, she cherished every moment.
Overall, Val was a homemaker. However, she was a woman of all trades. Val was an avid gardener, flowers and plants were always a passion of hers. She would do all of the floral arrangements for family and friends buried at the cemetery. She also did many flowers for weddings. Silk flowers, real flowers, plants, trees, bushes, flower beds, veggie gardens, you name it, Val could do all of it. She would make it all look so beautiful. All of it was her pride and joy. Arts and crafts were also a bit part of Val’s life. Her bows were amazing, along with all of her wreaths. Val’s favorite job was being a florist. She worked beside her husband, Gaylen, painting and also had a house cleaning service. For many years, Val worked at Renfrow Bar and Grill. She was famous for all of the delicious food in the evenings. No one could make chicken fried steaks or hashbrowns like she could. As her husband, Gaylen, recently said, “She made special hashbrowns that were so good. No one makes them like that!”
Valorie was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Mike.
She is survived by her husband, Gaylen; children, Justin (Andrea) Brandi (Justin “Doc”), Wyatt (Jamie) and Nick (Kendra); grandchildren, Zack, Shae, Keller, Kailyn, Hadley, Blaine, Harrison, Eleanor Louise, and Asher; sister Cindy Moss (David); and brother Greg Rohrbaugh. She will also be missed by lots of family and friends, plus her extra “family”. .
Following cremation, private family services will be held.
Memorials may be made to the Caldwell Care Network and sent in care of the mortuary.
