Gone too soon, Valerie Langel passed away of a broken heart on November 7, 2023.

Val was born on June 25, 1971 to Sheryl and Leonard Glasoe. Along with her older brother Lance, she completed the family. Val grew up in the best childhood era. Days of playing outside until dark- especially hide and seek, riding in cars with no seatbelts, riding bikes without helmets (often to Jim Dandy’s for candy) and knocking on doors in the neighborhood and running away. Growing up, Val spent Friday nights at the softball fields where her Dad and Uncle played and then they would all head to the lake to camp for the rest of the weekend. Val also enjoyed playing on a bowling league with her brother, Lance where she collected many trophies. When Val wasn’t out in the backyard around the fire, you could find her inside watching her favorite scary movie.

In 1994, she married Jay Rowton. Val and Jay had two children together, Kayla and Nick, who were her absolute pride and joy. Val and Jay eventually divorced, and she married Adam Langel in 2007. With this marriage, she gained another son Zach who she was also very proud of. She had two golden retrievers, Luckee and Rockee, that filled the house when the kids were gone. Val also loved her two golden grandpups. Whenever she would see them, she would say, “How’s grammas girl or How’s grammas boy” in a special voice that made Oaklee and Bucklee go wild. Nothing made her happier than a house full of kids and golden retrievers.

Val was a sweet and funny soul, and her family and friends meant the world to her. She loved everyone and was loved by everyone. Val had that fun loving spirit who was always ready for a good time, especially with her partner in crime and favorite cousin, Stacy. When Nick passed away on August 23, 2022, Val was devastated, but she continued to laugh and be strong and carry on. She missed her son with every fiber of her being and she is now reunited with Nick in heaven.

Val is preceded in death by her son (Nick Rowton), Mom (Sheryl Murdoch), Dad (Leonard Glasoe) and step mother (Carlene Glasoe).

Val is survived by her husband (Adam Langel), loving daughter (Kayla Rowton), son (Zach Langel), brother (Lance Glasoe), second dad (Bob Murdoch), nieces (Deidra McCombs, Chloe Hayes, and Katie Zbiden), nephews (Colter Glasoe and Logan Braulick), mother-in-law (Lila Langel), sister-in-law (Amy Langel), stepsisters (Bert, Jamie, Maureen, Sue, Sheri, and Sandy), stepbrothers (Rick and Jason).
