Valori McKay Celebration of Life

Celebration of Life

Valori Fortescue McKay

February 25, 1954 – January 22, 2023

Nothing filled Valori’s heart more than connecting with her family, her friends and colleagues. The art of conversation and a feeling of coming home were her special gifts that she shared with so many during her famous dinners, at a party or event with her signature glass of white wine. Her friendship circle includes people of all ages, and all walks of life as she extended a helping hand and a genuine interest and care to all.

We invite her friends and colleagues to join us in celebrating this amazing woman,

Valori McKay. Come and mingle, raise a glass, have a nibble as we share some thanks, some pictures and stories from her life.

We will have a memory wall of comments from those who were unable to join us and to which you may add your thoughts.
