Claudia Ann Valley

Juneau resident Claudia Ann Valley (formerly Exner) died Feb. 21, 2000, in Juneau.

She was born Aug. 29, 1954, in Tacoma, Wash. She moved to Juneau at a young age and graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1973. She served briefly in the U.S. Navy before receiving a medical discharge.

Valley began working with children at the Henry House with Mrs. Joe Henry, who recognized her talent working with children. She encouraged her to pursue the training necessary to work with handicapped children. Valley spent the next 20 years working with children at child-care centers in Juneau.

Valley was a great-granddaughter of Juneau's co-founder Richard T. Harris and a shareholder of Sealaska Corp. and Goldbelt.

She is survived by her husband David Valley, daughter Barbra Rawson, her parents Eugene and Liela Haley, brothers Patrick (and wife Penny), Richard Haley, all of Juneau, and Ronald Haley of Kent, Wash. Other survivors include one nephew, one great-nephew, several nieces of Juneau and Kettle Falls, Wash., numerous cousins in Washington, uncles James Halley of Orting, Wash., Tom Harris (and wife Virginia) of Juneau and aunt Irene Lenz (and husband Herb) of Seattle.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, at the First Church of God, 2215 Ka-See-an Dr. Following the service, a celebration of her life will be held at the home of Patrick and Penny Haley, 8817 Gail Ave.

A memorial fund has been established at National Bank of Alaska. Contributions may be made in care of her daughter, Barbra Rawson.

Bob L. Fagg

Juneau resident Bob L. Fagg died Feb. 29, 2000, in Madigan Hospital in Tacoma, Wash., from complications due to heart surgery.

He was born Oct. 25, 1925, in Bend, Ore. Fagg moved to Juneau in 1991 after retiring from Weber Aircraft in Everett, Wash. For the past five years, he was employed by the Tlingit Haida Hall as maintenance supervisor and volunteered his skills to the Juneau Douglas Boxing Association.

His family said he enjoyed the quiet life that Juneau offered and spent most of his free time fishing. He was a passionate tinkerer and loved the challenge of solving problems. His favorite motto was, ``There isn't anything that can't be fixed.''

Fagg was preceded in death by his son Bobby Fagg.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Carmen J. Fagg, his sisters Mary and Lois of Washington, his children Patrick Fagg and Raymond Lee of Juneau, and Lynn, Linda, Kari, Vera, Donna, Dan, and Michael, who live outside Alaska, and more than 30 grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Services will be held 4 p.m. Sunday, at the First Church of God, 2215 Ka-see-an Drive. A potluck dinner will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests remembrances be sent to the Juneau Douglas Boxing Association, P.O. Box 32532, Juneau, Alaska 99803.
