Mrs. Diana Hughes Walker

Sunrise: July 14, 1943 - Sunset: October 25, 2016
The Walker, Hughes and Kolenky Families are sad to announce the home going of our Mother, Grand Mother, and Great Grand Mother - Mrs. Diana Hughes Walker. This sad event occured on Tuesday, October 25th 2016 at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Yeadon Pennsylvania (USA).

Mother Walker as she was affectionately called was dedicated to her family, church and a host of prayer partners. Born and raised in Grand Bassa County, she migrated to the United States of America in 1990 and devoted her life to a number of prayer groups. Her passion for prayer brought many into her company and trusted care for intercession. She joined the Christ International Baptist Church where she sacrificially served with dedication earning the designation as the Mother of the Church. Her love for her family was not limited to her children but to all those who were identified with her.

Mother Walker will be deeply missed by many who came to know and love her. She leaves to mourn her husband: Mr. Henry Peeu Walker; Children: Edwin (Sarah) Kolenky, Julia Kolenky Lewis, Winnie Kolenky, Oscar (Yewedi) Walker, James Walker, Dwede Walker, Francis Walker, Rosetta Walker, and Alphonso Walker; 20 Grand children; 7 Great grand children and two sisters: Martha Cassell and Marie Hughes.

She is predeceased by her father: Jimmie Hughes of Grand Bassa County; her mother: Surday Lorblay; brother: Amos Hughes; and sister: Martha Thompson.
