Sadness amidst celebration
On December 19, 2009, our daughter, Kathryn Walker, went to be with the Lord after a long and difficult battle with cancer.
The picture shared here was taken on 8/12/08, the only time all five of my children were together.
Kathryn L. Perry Walker
1/3/1964 - 12/19/2009
Kathryn left behind her devoted husband, Andrew, daughter, Samantha (22) and son, Christopher (25) as well as a very large extended family. Kat, as she preferred to be called, had recently given her life to the Lord Jesus Christ and was excited about learning His word and was enjoying gospel music. She was very creative and enjoyed decorating her home. At one time Kathryn owned Kathryn's Hallmark in Wichita Falls, TX, she was also the manager of Sikes Senter Mall in Wichita Falls for several years. After moving to the Dallas, TX area she was a property manager for the Weitzman Group until the cancer required that she go on disability approximately a year before her passing.
In spite of enduring the extremely strong treatments in attempt to beat the very aggressive breast cancer she fought, she never complained. Kathryn was always upbeat, and had a smile on her face. She enjoyed helping others who had been diagnosed with cancer, and just months before her passing she acted as the honorary chairman of the Walk-a-thon in Wichita Falls, and also participated in the walk-a-thon in Lubbock, TX where her daughter attends college. She truly was the example of grace and dignity.
She will be greatly missed by family, as well as a great number of friends.
