Valeria Craig McCamon passed from this life on February 9, 2021, at the age of 91 years, 8 months, and 12 days at her home in Elk City, OK. Valeria was born May 28, 1929, on a farm west of Sayre to Lois and Otis Craig.
Valeria married Glen McCamon on April 25, 1946, in Madera, California. The family started attending church at the Assembly of God at 5th and Randall in the early ’50s. In the early-mid ’60s, she then taught a Sunday school class and helped with vacation bible school during the summer. She made sure the family attended all church services. They were taught to respect the people and the church. Years later, she attended Grandview church until her health prevented her from leaving home.
She worked for several years in the 1970s at Daylight Donuts and Elk City schools. She enjoyed working outdoors, watching old westerns, working crossword puzzles, and reading her Bible. Valeria was a great mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her eyes would light up every time anyone of the great-grandchildren came to visit.
