Oct. 14, 1946 - Aug. 3, 2007

TRENTON -- Rosemary Walker, 60, of rural Trenton, died Friday, August 3, 2007, at the Dundy County Hospital in Benkelman, Neb., after her battle with cancer.

She was born Oct. 14, 1946, in Richland Center, Wis., to Rodney and Edith (Scott) Brown.

After being raised at the Beefhide Gospel Mission in the Mountains of Kentucky, she attended Crown College in St. Paul, Minn., where she met Johnny Walker. On June 10, 1967, she married Johnny Walker of Culbertson, Neb., in Peaks Branch, Ky. Johnny and Rosie lived in St. Paul, Minn., for five years and then moved back to Nebraska to farm, ranch and own and operate the Johnny Walker Boys Ranch. Later the Nebraska Auction Service became an occupation for them.

Survivors include her parents, Rodney and Edith Brown of Pineview, Ga.; husband, Johnny Walker of Trenton; children, Angel and husband, Giles Armstrong of Mitchell, Neb., Scott and wife, Tiffany of Trenton, Neb., Crystal and husband, David Darling of Benkelman, Neb., and Billy and wife, Heather of Trenton, Neb.; siblings, Sharon and husband, Hershel Roberts of Coquille, Ore., Judy and husband, Jackie of Pineview, Ga., Joyce and husband, Richard Johnson of LaValle, Wis., and David Brown of Houston, Texas; and eight grandchildren, Christopher, Sophia, Olivia, Haley, Grant, Mallory, Noah and new baby Walker.

Memorial services will be held Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007, at 10:30 a.m. CDT at the Hitchcock County High School Gymnasium in Trenton, Neb. Interment will follow at the Meadowlawn Cemetery in Hamlet. The casket will not be opened at the service.

Bible School, Awana and Jr. Church, these were Rosemary's heartbeats for children. In lieu of flowers, the memorial gifts given will be for expansion in the facility at the Church of God in Trenton, where Rosemary worshiped and served. Our desire is that you consider this far-reaching and lasting expression of a community children's ministry memorial.

Herrmann Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
