Catherine Rebecca (Becky) Daniels Valadie, 87, of Chattanooga, passed away on August 11, 2020.
Born in Chattanooga, she graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1951 and studied one year at Webster College in St. Louis, Mo.
After a 60-year career in the medical field, her retirement at age 80 provided opportunities to volunteer in the local Catholic community where she gave much time to the Catholic Ladies of Charity and the St. Vincent de Paul Society as well as getting to play bridge with her many friends.
In 2018 she was honored by Catholic Charities of East Tennessee with a Pope Francis Service Award.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ross and Katherine Daniels, a brother, Ross B. (Red) Daniels, Jr., an infant sister, Mary Anne Daniels and her husband, Edward Joseph Valadie.
She is survived by her brother Fletcher Daniels (New Orleans), four children, George (Nancy) Valadie, Kay Thompson, Lynn (Doug) Slabuagh and Michele Valadie; 13 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces and many friends.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, Aug. 13, at the Chattanooga Funeral Home East Chapel from 6-8 p.m. A family funeral will be held the following day at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church with burial at Mount Olivet Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, c/o OLPH Church, 501 South Moore Road, Chattanooga, TN, 37412 or to your favorite charity.
