Helen Marie Walker

Helen Marie Walker, 97, passed away Saturday, Sept. 23, at Mission at Castle Rock in Green River. She was a resident of Green River for 77 years and former resident of Robertson. 

She was born Dec. 1, 1925, in Robertson, the daughter of Wallace Bond and Marjorie Godfrey.

Mrs. Walker attended schools in Mountain View and was a 1943 graduate of Mountain View High School.

She married Ren C. Walker on Nov. 5, 1945, in Ogden, Utah. He preceded her in death on March 7, 2000.

Mrs. Walker worked for First National Bank for 30 years and retired in 1981 as the vice president of the bank.

She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Helen delighted at spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She enjoyed water skiing, riding snow machines, working in her garden, and she grew beautiful roses. She collected unusually-shaped and pretty rocks and her great-grandsons share this interest.

She always carried a camera and took pictures as a way to record her interests and her life. After her and Ren’s retirements they traveled and also spent the majority of time at their cabin, where Helen also grew many flowers and took many photos.

Survivors include her son, Jerry Walker (Barbara) of Green River; two grandchildren, Jackie Carland (Curt) of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and Cheryl LaVoy (Craig) of Cheyenne; sister-in-law, Nita Bond; four great-grandchildren, Lucas, Kenley, Carter and Connor; and several cousins; nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; infant son, Jackie Walker; one brother, Larry Bond; and one sister, Jean Powell.

The family respectfully requests donations be made in Helen’s name to Golden Hour Senior Center, 550 Uinta Dr., Green River, WY 82935, or to charity of your choice.

Funeral services were conducted at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, at the Vase Funeral Chapel, 154 Elk St., Rock Springs.  Graveside services and interment followed in the Lyman City Cemetery.
