Valerie Jean Henrie Aldrete
Birth: May 17, 1958
Alameda County
California, USA
Death: Jul. 13, 2011
Marin County
California, USA

Val moved in two doors down from me in second grade. We grew up together. She graduated from San Leandro High School in 1976. She became a hairdresser and did my hair for many years, including on the day of my wedding.

She first married her high school sweetheart, Bill Hulse, and they had a son. After they divorced, she remarried and had a daughter. After a second divorce, she met and married the love of her life, Dan Aldrete. They were married for 23 years.

Valerie was always very much into health and fitness, so it was surprising that after a Pilates class on March 7, 2011, she suffered a heart attack and then went into a coma. She had a second cardiac arrest on July 8, at which time her family made the difficult decision to discontinue medical treatment in accordance with Val's wishes. She passed away five days later.

She is survived by her husband and children, as well as her father, sister and brother. She was preceded in death by her mother.
