This gentle woman was born to Jeramiah and Mary Walker on June 8, 1924, and passed away with dignity, mid-sentence, telling the doctor “no antibiotics and no resuscitation attempts.”
“I’ve lived a good long life, and I’m tired.”
A true daughter of pioneer families, the Spokane Indian Reservation’s School District is named after her great-grandmother.
Barbara is survived by her three sons, Kirk, David, and Jeff, and her beloved granddaughter, Marielle.
A celebration of her life is scheduled for June 7 at her home in Sequim.
