Catherine “Kay” or “Katie” Opal Walker

Oct 10, 1934 – Oct 17, 2014

Mom was born in Preeceville, Saskatchewan to Tony and Annie Karpiak. She was predeceased by her father Tony, sisters Hope and Gladys Karpiak, son-in-law David T Warner. Her mother Annie is still with us, at 100 years of age.

Mom was always a hard working, get the job done kind of woman. She grew up on a farm and then worked at the boarding houses her parents owned. She married an Air Force man named Bill Walker and together they travelled Europe where Dad was stationed. Mom always had beautiful memories and stories of these times.

They went on to have four children; Debbie, Rick (Alana), Terry and Bill. Grandchildren Jolene, Clayton (Lisa), Robbie, Lee (Jackalin), Mandy (Brodie), Cameron, Davon. Great-grandchildren Jordann, Brody, Jayden, Riley, Mason and our newest pride and joy, Baby Blake.

Her long fought battle is over and she and our Dad are together again.

Celebration of our mother’s life will be on Sunday, October 26th at 1:00 pm in the Carriage Room of the Royal Coachman, 84 Dogwood Street, Campbell River, BC.
