In Loving Memory Of

Theresa Walker


With heartfelt sadness and much love, we mourn the loss and celebrate the life of Theresa (Granny) Walker. A life-time resident of the Grande Prairie area, she passed away suddenly with family by her side on Saturday, June 27, 2015, at the age of 86 years, leaving to join the Lord and to enjoy the sunsets from heaven. Theresa was born on May 24, 1929 east of Grande Prairie, the oldest of four children born to Barbara and Joseph Kozlowski. She grew up in the Webster community, and at the age of 16 moved to Beaverlodge to work as a telephone operator. It was at a baseball game that she met her future husband Arthur Walker, and they were married for 60 years. In 1959 they moved the family to Grande Prairie and she worked at various jobs, ending up at the Grande Prairie QEII Hospital, retiring after 30 years there. When she retired they enjoyed travelling and spending time with family. She was a devout parishioner of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, a CWL Member and a supporter of many organizations in the Grande Prairie community. She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Barbara Kozlowski, husband Arthur Walker, sister Jean Yurychuk, brother Adam Joseph Kozlowski, son in-law Rod Arabsky, brothers in-law Greg and Herb, sister in-law Joan, and many close family and friends.
