Valeria (Val) Bell Connett (Evans) was born February 3, 1936 to John Simon and Ina Evans in Derby, IA. She married Vernon (Sam) Lee Connett June 18, 1954. She worked at AMF in Des Moines for 11 years. Later owned and operated Midwest Gold Buyers in Des Moines. Valeria was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, her father and mother, two brothers, and one grandchild. She is survived by her children Vickie Northway (Allen) of Indianola, IA, Vernon Connett Jr. (Denyse) of Pleasantville, IA, and Linda Ripperger (Dave) of Dallas, IA; seven grandchildren, twenty-eight great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and friends. Valeria was an amazing lady, mom grandma and friend. Full of talent, she could do or make anything she put her mind to. She always said she was a "Jack of all trades and master of none". She always poured her heart into her work and then shared that love with others through her hand made gifts. A true servant of the Lord, He could use her anytime day or night to serve others in any way He wanted. He knew she would always be dependable. In return, He blessed her with His strength to conquer anything that came her way - even unto death. She passed into His glory with love, faith, and dignity. She was also blessed with God's love for others. Her love shined like sunshine on all that met her. People flocked to the safety of her home, which was always open to all. A beautiful woman inside and out she will continue to be a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Cemetery Details Derby Cemetery 9327 Co Rd 306
