Valerie Lynn Phillip-Smith, Age 52, passed away at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center, Fort Walton Beach, September 24, 2021. She was born June 2, 1969 in Medina, Ohio to Robert Phillip and Marilu Phillip.
Valerie was the ray of sunshine and loving hand everyone needed. She loved helping those in need and was one to drop everything and be there for someone. She dearly loved Avon and all the people who came with it. Her grandchildren were her number one and she would eat her little pumpkins up every moment she could. She will be greatly missed by family, friends, and so many others. She made the biggest impact in so many lives.
Valerie is survived by her husband Calvin Fletcher Smith; father, Robert Phillip; daughter Erica Reyes; Son-in-law Rigoberto Reyes Hernandez; two Grandchildren, Konnor Reyes and Natalia Reyes; as well as so many friends.
Valerie requested no funeral or ceremony. The ACS of Emerald coast will honor her in their walk, on October 16, 2021; as she loved that event so dearly. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family requests that you give a kind word or do a good deed for someone in her honor.
