Below obituary thanks to Findagrave member Ms. Clyde (Link to her contributor profile: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=46994776)

Katharine Bell Walker passed peacefully into her new life on January 13, 2007, in Mercer Island, WA, her home for 49 years. She was born on August 27, 1914 in Boone County, Indiana.

In the 1930s and 40s she worked for Eli Lilly in Indianapolis where she lived until 1946, when she married Stanley Walker and moved to Seattle. She had met him several years earlier at USO dance while he was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison, and they were married after his return from service in the Army in Europe from 1943 to 1945. He preceded her in death in 1977. She had one sister, Rosemary Bell Hockett of Carmel, IN, to whom she remained very close for her whole life, until Rosemary's death in 2003.

After her marriage she devoted herself to being a homemaker and mother. Late in her life she resumed working outside the home, first at a health food store, and then as a babysitter for several local families. She was also active in her church and in several volunteer organizations. Throughout her life she was an unshakable example of Christian faith and trust in God.

She was the devoted and selfless mother of two sons, David and Douglas, who were blessed by opportunity to care for her in her final years. She is also fondly remembered by her sister's family, the Hocketts, by her sister-in-law, Ernestine Lundberg of Marysville, WA, and Lundberg family, and the children she babysat, now grown, and their families, and by many others whose lives she touched.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, January 20, 2007, at Evergreen Funeral Home and Cemetery in Everett, WA.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God - not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. Eph. 2:8-10.
