It is with great sadness that the family of Val Haiser (née Tyreman) announce her passing on December 1, 2022 at the age of 79, surrounded by family at home after a brief battle with recurring melanoma.

She will be deeply missed by her beloved husband Richard of 50 years and her children Adam Haiser (Goli) and Allie Park (James); by her grandchildren Eden, Lydia, Ezra, Junia Park, and Kian Haiser; by her brothers Allan Tyreman (Hilary) and Harold Tyreman (Judy); by her nieces and nephews; and by her many friends and relations.

Born in Surrey, England during World War II to Canadian soldier Ted Tyreman and his British war bride Eileen, Val and her family moved to Canada and settled in Sudbury, Ontario.  She enrolled at the Ontario Teachers’ College to pursue her love of teaching, which led her to the love of her life, Richard, where they met teaching at the same high school.  Val and Richard married in 1972 and raised their family in the house they built in Heidelberg, Ontario.  Val continued teaching at various schools before spending most of her career as an EA for different ability children at Resurrection Catholic School.  She loved her students dearly.

Our Val was a devout Christian, a dedicated volunteer, a natural teacher, a keen traveller, a passionate outdoors woman, and a social butterfly!  As a long-time member of All Saints’ Anglican Church, she volunteered in the choir, on the hospitality, funeral, and property committees, as a past warden, and as a rep for PWRDF and Diocese of Huron Synod.  Val was most passionate about working on the refugee committee at church and she will be missed by many of those families she helped settle in Canada.

She will be fondly remembered as a loving wife, Mum, and Mimi by her family and as a loyal friend, social organizer, avid reader, talented gardener, exuberant cook, and as a caring, vibrant woman who loved life by all who knew her.  Though we know she awoke to a new life with Christ, her passing will leave a huge hole in many lives.

Our family will receive friends and relatives at Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S, Waterloo, on Friday, December 9 from 3-5 pm.  A Celebration of Life will be held at Wilmot Centre Church, 2463 Bleams Rd, Petersburg, on Saturday, December 10 at 11:00 am.  A reception will follow.  Attendees are encouraged to wear florals or flowers, her favourite addition to any celebration.  

A private cremation has already taken place.  Condolences for the family and donations to All Saints’ Anglican Church for “Refugee Resettlement” or for “Outreach Ministries” may be arranged at
