The sun set for Viola W. Walker on April 4, 2018 at her home in San Antonio, Texas. The sun rose for Viola on July 1, 1930 in St. Louis, Missouri to Frank and Mable Warfield. She was raised and educated in Nowata, Oklahoma, and attended Lincoln High School.
Viola met and married Willie H. Walker. To their union were eight (8) children, Michael, Robert, Deborah, Ivan, Sherry, Karen, Philip and Ireatha.
Viola worked at the Nowata General Hospital as a Nurse as well as a Charter Nurse. She also worked at the Osage Nursing Home and Hays House until she moved to San Antonio, TX. She was a faithful member of First Baptist Church, Nowata singing in the choir while serving on the missionary board and kitchen committee.
To many she was called "Auntie Vi". Her home served as an open door and open arms as well as a hot plate of food for everyone. She loved children and the more the merrier.
She enjoyed B-I-N-G-O and if you ever went with her to "work", you never missed a number, as she not only played her cards but yours too! In her earlier adult life she was on a bowling team in Nowata and is there any relative who didn't have a handcrafted crochet scarf or house shoes?? She also made handcrafted items for many local churches and organizations in the San Antonio area.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Willie H. Walker; son Michael Walker; Robert Walker; and daughter, Sherry Walker.
She leaves to mourn her passing, four children, Deborah Vaughn (Troy), Arlington, Texas, Ivan Walker, San Antonio, Texas, Karen Matthews (Clarence), Atlanta, Georgia, Philip Walker, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Ireatha Ford, Colton, California; 16 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren, and 7 great-great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
