Mrs. William Walker

Iron County Record, December 1912

Beloved Woman Goes to her Reward

The Record regrets to announce that Mrs. William Walker, whose serious illness was announced some weeks since, died at her home in this city Christmas day, at 12 o'clock, at the age of 75 years.

She had been ill for more than two months, her affliction being chiefly due to effects of advanced age, and for several days loved ones had been keeping a vigilant watch, fearing the worst.

Mrs. Walker was one of those sweet, christian souls, whose very presence made others better, and none knew her but to love her. Quiet and unassuming in her manner, she went quietly about doing good at every opportunity, and many there are who will remember her kindly ministrations.

In addition to her aged husband, Mrs. Walker leaves three sisters and three brothers, and eight children, as follows: former bishop Wm. V. Walker, George, Frank, Edwin, Ernest, Joshua, and one daughter, Mrs. Nettie Macfarlane, all of whom are residents of Cedar City.

[submitter's note: Mrs. Walker was born Janet Corry.]
