Valerie K. (Huffman) Atchison

October 18, 1954 ~ July 29, 2019 (age 64)

Valerie K. (Huffman) Atchison, 64, passed away on Monday, July 29, 2019.  She was born on October 18, 1954, in Huntington, Indiana to the late Charles Huffman and Janet (Williams) Huffman. Valerie graduated from Marion High School Class of 1973. She married the late Daniel L. Atchison on August 30, 1985, and made a life of being a wonderful homemaker.

Valerie will be deeply missed by her family and friends, who have described her as being an inspiration to them all. She was fun, loving and the most selfless person they knew. Her family was her entire world. She was very proud of her grandchildren and loved to babysit them. Valerie was the most dependable person and was always there for anyone who needed her, no matter what she had going on. She would rather help someone than to ever be helped. Valerie loved music, sitting outside by the pool, her plants, playing euchre, doing crafts, painting, and woodworking. She enjoyed going to garage sales and was the best bargain shopper around.

Valerie is survived by her mother, Janet Huffman, Marion; her daughters, Cheryl Brown, Pueblo, Co, Michelle L. (Richard) Burns, Marion and Jennifer (Bryan) Eskridge, Marion; her siblings, Barry Huffman, Marion, Christine Davis, Indianapolis, and Daniel (Lori) Huffman, Indianapolis; her grandchildren, Eric Brown, Allie Brown, Ricky Bearden, Danielle Eskridge, Trey Eskridge, Zach Burns and Kaylee Burns.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Daniel L. Atchison, her father, Charles Huffman, her brother, Clay Huffman, and her grandson, Bryan Eskridge Jr.

Arrangements for Valerie have been entrusted to College Park Chapel of Armes-Hunt Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4601 S.
