Maggie Valentine

Maggie Valentine (May 17, 1923 to January 24, 2014) was the skip of the BC women’s champion team in 1966. She was not only a top competitive player in British Columbia, she was also President of the Canadian Ladies Curling Association from 1965-66.   Curling was Maggie’s life and she continued to curl well into her 80s.   At dinner time, Maggie would replay every curling shot on the dinner table with the salt and pepper shakers for her family to see.  A true lover of the sport, she was inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame in 1986.

Maggie (born Margaret Eileen Wallace) passed away on January 24, 2014, with her daughter Penny Dalton by her side. She was predeceased by her first husband Jack Cooke and her second husband Victor Valentine. She will be sadly missed by her son Randy Cooke and extended family.
