Leona Leavitt Walker was a graduate of Agnes Scott College with the double majors of Mathematics and History. Leona spent the first part of her adult life with her husband and family relocating for career reasons to many states and various countries including the Netherlands, Portugal and eventually Greece. Mrs. Walker returned to Atlanta in 1967 on the loss of her husband Peter, who was a Marine and radar engineer. As an employee of the Emory University Clinic for more than 25 years, Mrs. Walker ultimately worked administering the retirement plans for many of the partnership doctors before retiring herself. She had been a member of Central Presbyterian Church since childhood. She was predeceased by her sister, Mary Elizabeth Collins, affectionately known as Widdy. She is survived by her children, Lona Fleming (Tom), Peter Gautier Walker IV, and Lauren Dutro (Richard).
