    “Anyway You Bless Me Lord I’ll Be Satisfied” this was one of the many songs she led in the Church choir. Every time Sis. Walker sang that song her spirit was overwhelmed with unspeakable joy. She knew there was something within that banished the pain and anyway the Lord blessed her she would be satisfied. Sis. Walker served as a Sunday School, Bible Study teacher, Bible Drill Instructor and Mission I at the Willow Grove Baptist Church for many years. Her gift was to “go ye therefore and teach all nations”….Matthew 28:19 and she did. The members of the Willow Grove Church Family will cherish her memory by the wisdom she shared with us. To the Hightower and Walker Families remember that you may have lose your 91 year old family anchor but your soul is anchored in Jesus and He will take care of you. May you continue to look to the hills from where your help comes from, your help comes from the Lord. You now say “Thank You Jesus, All Is Well.” Lovingly Submitted, Members of the Willow Grove Baptist Church.
