Victoria – Una “Gay” Walker, 81, of Victoria, formerly of Uvalde, went home to be with The Lord on Friday, May 9, 2014. She was born to the late Agnes Purdue Jimerson and Gay Gillenwaters on Feb. 5, 1933, in Fort Sill, Okla. She was a very hard working, independent woman her entire life. She had a sassy, loving way about her and she never met a stranger. She enjoyed sitting at her table working crossword puzzles and word search to exercise her mind. She had a passion for writing and sending cards to the multitude of people she knew, just because she cared and did not really need a reason. Her cards were filled with love, uplifting everyone with her wonderful poems, beautiful stories, words of wisdom, facts, jokes, and newspaper clippings. She is survived by her four children, James Ray Thomas and wife Flory of Connecticut; Deborah Moore of Utopia; Roger Morris and wife Kathy of Victoria; Diana Sherman of Falls City. She was a proud and loving grandmother, greatgrandmother and a great-great-grandmother to a wonderfully large “bunch of flowers in her garden.” In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step-father, Ozzie Jimerson and her sister Lynn Jimerson. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 17, 2014, at 2 p.m. at Covenant Life Center, 108 Cozzi Circle, Victoria. Following the service, there will be a gathering at the home of Roger and Kathy Morris, 6036 Country Club Drive, Victoria. Per Ms. Walker’s request, donations may be made to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. We would like to thank all the nurses and caregivers of Health Force Home Health Care. Special thanks to Shannon for being so gentle and kind and helping her feel special. Darlene, there are no words great enough to describe how wonderful you have been. You were always just a phone call away and always knew how to get things done. She loved and appreciated you all for every little or big thing you did to make her life more comfortable. We would also like to thank the Supportive Care Team and the Nurses of Citizens Medical Center second floor. Each one of you gave her the utmost compassion, blessing her with your tender kindnesses and loving, gentle care at the end of her days. To all of you, we, her family, will forever be truly grateful. Grace Funeral Home in charge of arrangements. THE PRECEDING IS A PAID OBITUARY.
