We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Northern Star Mortuary (KC)
Georgia Lee Valiant-Adams was born into this life to Lester Valiant Sr. and Rosie Lee Hardy on January 23, 1948 (who preceded her in death) in St. Louis, Missouri and later moved to Kansas City, Kansas to live with her loving aunt Georgia Lee Valiant-Manley, who raised her. Georgia accepted Christ at an early age, and she received her education in the Kansas City, Kansas public school district.
At a young age, five children were born, her only son, Darold Coleman, four daughters, Shara Coleman/Valiant, Shelia Valiant, Leslie Valiant-Evans, and Juanita Valiant. Late in life, God united Mark Adams and Georgia Valiant on December 7th, 1979. Throughout their matrimony, she was able to develop close friendships and sisterhood with Lois Gilliam, Gloria Frye, and many others which they all maintained their friendship throughout the years. She was employed at DST Systems Output Technologies as an material handler/mail-sorter from 1993 to 2003. She loved to cook, bake home-made 7-up cake and desserts, play bingo, go to the casinos in and out of town, thrift shopping, garage sales, travel by plane or road trips. She didn't allow any grass to grow under her feet. While balancing family, life, and work, Georgia was determined to return back to the classroom to earned her degree, which she did with honors, at Donnelly College in 1989. She later went on to substitute teach for the USD 500 public school district in Kansas City, Kansas until her retirement.
In her ladder years, Georgia rededicated her life to Christ and was a member of Christ Second Chances, and often visited The Ark Christian Center in which she has lineage and was a servant of hospitality from her younger years. But most of all she loved to be with family, and Georgia was preceded in death by her husband Mark Adams, (1) sister Sarah Martin, (1) brother Samuel Lewis Jr., (2) sister of love Lois Gilliam, Gloria Faye, and a very special friend Beverly (Butch) Jones.
Georgia leaves to cherish her memory (5) children; her only son Darold Coleman (Susan Coleman), Shara Coleman/Valiant, Shelia Valiant, Leslie Valiant-Evans, and Juanita Valiant. (2) brothers; Lester Valiant-Bey, and Joseph Lewis. A host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews cousins, and friends.
We will forever remember you Georgia, she was our "SuperWoman", she was a warrior, survivor of her circumstances, a loving daughter, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend..........I am your strength and shield. I plan out each day and have it ready for you long before arise from bed. I also provide the strength you need each step of the way. Instead of assessing your energy level and wondering about what's on the road ahead, concentrate on staying in touch with me. My power flows freely into you through out open communication. Refuse to waste energy worrying, and you will have strength to spare. Whenever you start to feel afraid, remember that I am your shield. But unlike inanimate armor, I am always alert and active. My presence watched over you continually, protecting you from both known and unknown dangers. And trust yourself to my watch-care, which is the best security system available. I am with you and will watch over you whenever you go.
Psalms 28:7 ; Matthew 6:34
We know that God is pleased to have one of his kind and generous angels back into his hands, where she belongs. She will surely be missed by those on earth. We know that we can't have you. We all are happy knowing that the angels in heaven have finally got you back home.
