Valerie Wilson was born on Sunday, July 23, 1967, in Sumter, South Carolina to Ernest Sanders, Jr. and the late Leila Wilson Pringle. 

“Val” as she is most affectionately called, was educated in the Sumter County  Public Schools and in 1985 she graduated from Sumter High School.

At an early age, Val joined Bethel AME Church of Sumter, South Carolina and she sung on the Children’s Choir. She held multiple jobs in Sumter which included Charm House Fabrics, Madison, Gold Kist, Subway and Windsor Manor Nursing Facility.
Besides being well known for her delicious cooking, Val was always the life of the party. She made everyone laugh with her witty sense of humor and she knew how to tell a story that would transcend any imagination.

In addition to her mother, Val was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Johnnie and Charlotte Wilson; her paternal grandparents, Ernest Sanders, Sr. and Dorothy Griffin; and several uncles, aunts and cousins. 
She departed her earthly life on Sunday, August 22, 2021 in Sumter, South Carolina.
