Her family admired and loved her, and she will be dearly missed.  She is preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Olice Walker, brother G. W. Walker, husband Bobby Tew, daughter Susan Thompson Tew, and grandson Stafford Summersgill. Survivors include daughter Lyn Bowden and husband Robert, son Steve Tew and wife Nanci, grandchildren James, Lauren and husband Alex, Rebekka and husband Cody, Ashlyn and husband Doran, David and wife Julia, and Margaret and husband Roy, great grandchildren Bankston, Caroline, Aubrey, Roy, and Bolden, sister Joyce Barnes, and brother Otto Walker.
