Valene Lau

In Loving memory of Mom, we submit a summary of her life. She was born in her maternal grandmother’s home in Guttenberg on Oct. 2, 1934. She grew up on the family farm near Clayton Center.  After graduating Valedictorian of her 1952 Garnavillo High School class she moved to Dubuque to attend business school, but her favorite memory of that time was working in the music store. She loved music, especially Ray Price and Roy Clark. She was pursued and courted by Keith H. Lau.  Their relationship began after a brief encounter in high school when, while she was walking through his class, he noted out loud that she was the prettiest girl he had ever seen. Her baby blue eyes just sparkled with life and more than a bit of mischief.
