Mary June (Hallett) Valley, 92, of Lena, passed away March 3, due to cancer, surrounded by her family in Florida.
Born June 1, 1922, in Lena, to Victor and Dora Hallett, she married Louis Valley of Lena on Oct. 8, 1940 and was a lifelong member of St. Anne Catholic Church.

She attended many Green Bay Packers games with her friend, Petty Garrigan of Green Bay and enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing in the Dunbar and Crivitz area. She also enjoyed visiting her friend, Margaret Jorns of Sturgeon Bay whom she met while their husbands were serving in the Navy during World War II. She looked forward to summers in Crivitz with her family and grandchildren and spent winters in Florida, but always looked forward to going back home in the spring by friends in Lena.
