We send our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Mary Nunes. Mary passed away peacefully at Oakdale Nursing and Rehab Center on December 15, 2021. Mary was born to Joseph and Angelina Amaral on February 22, 1925. She is survived by her children, Carolyn McKee, Jeanette Groenveld, Eddy, Vernon, and Alvin Nunes. Mary had eight grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and three sisters. She was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers. Mary will be dearly missed and will forever be in our hearts.

Our Valley Home community sends our heartfelt sympathy to the entire Nunes family.


This past weekend our community came together to celebrate Christmas in Valley Home. Folks gathered in downtown Valley Home at 6 pm on Saturday. Our Lighted Christmas Parade was a beautiful sight to behold. Our 2021 Parade Grand Marshal Mr. Jerry Benedix led the parade throughout Valley Home! The Grand Marshal’s float was decorated with hundreds of sparkling Christmas lights, with many of our Grand Marshal’s family riding with him on the float. After the parade we enjoyed Christmas carols, “The Nativity”, hot Christmas chocolate, and “Bonnie’s Cookie Exchange”. And then it snowed in Valley Home; the children loved getting to play as manmade snow ‘fell’ from above. It was a special night in Valley Home!
