Valerie Ann (Lane) Gentry, 57, of Belton, died Saturday, June 28, 2014, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Lee’s Summit. Valerie was born April 26, 1957, in Kansas City, daughter of Bruce Derrel and Mary (Purcell) Lane.
Valerie was an integral part of so many lives. After 34 years of marriage, raising four children, and endearing herself to countless others, the void left in her absence is great. Yet, we can be assured of her enduring presence in the hearts of all who remember her.
Valerie was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Paul G. Gentry. She is survived by her sons, Joe Gentry (Renae) of St. Louis; Robert Gentry (Barbara) of Independence; and James Gentry (Acacia) of Freeport, Texas. She also leaves behind grandchildren Justin, Jonathon, Robbie, Jennifer, Tara, Amira, Paul, and Brandon; as well as one great-grandchild, Noah Bailey.
