Woman of the Year - 2013
Nelson is married to Bob, has three children and
four grandchildren. Her children attended St.
Pascal School and Valerie was very active as a
school parent and parishioner. She has been
part of the St. Pascal community for over thirty
years. Valerie had worked as a Chicago
Public School educator for almost thirty years
before her retirement. She still found the time
to assist with lunchroom duty for the school
children, assist with leading the Girl Scout and
Boy Scout troops, volunteer for different shifts
for the annual carnival and Bingo nights.
Valerie has been a member of the
Women’s Club for many years and has been
recording secretary for the past two years. She
is also part of the Welcoming Committee for new
parishioners to St. Pascal. Valerie is
known as the “taxi driver” to many. She is
always picking up or dropping off someone some
place, whether it is to a parish function, the
grocery store or a physician’s office for an
appointment. Along with her taxi skills,
Valerie babysits for her grandchildren five days
a week. She also runs errands for neighbors who
are shut-ins. During St. Pascal’s Small
Christian Community sessions, Valerie opens her
home to host a group of twelve each week.
Valerie Nelson exemplifies being
a true disciple. For her loving, caring ways,
her dedication to helping others less fortunate
and for all she does for St. Pascal, we are
honored to have Valerie “St. Pascal’s Woman of
the Year for 2013”.
