Elna Walker

July 15, 1916 – August 10, 2011






Born July 15, 1916 in Garden City, Kansas, Elna was the third child born to Ellis and Miriam Moss. She grew up with two older siblings, David and Dora, and three younger, June, Billy and Helen. The surviving sibling, Helen Moss Litle, and Elna stayed very close throughout the years. Elna graduated Chickasha High School in 1934. She went on to attend the Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha. On October 30, 1937, she and Bill Walker were married in Chickasha, OK. The union lasted 54 years until his passing in 1991. She continued to share that she had never met another person, before or after, that was as special as he was.

In addition to the life and memories of her husband, Elna often said that her greatest blessings were her children and their families: Diana Nelsen and husband Dean, of Goddard, Kansas; Bill Walker, Jr. and wife Lyda, of Ponca City; Miriam Carson and husband Jerry of Tyler, TX; and Donna Morgan and husband Chris of Corpus Christi, TX. She had 13 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.

She was deeply loved by family and friends. Besides being a homemaker and raising the family, Elna worked at a number of jobs, and retired from Conoco 1978. She enjoyed retirement life, going shopping and visiting with friends.  Several years ago she moved to Via Christi Village where she enjoyed playing cards and bingo with fellow residents. She also enjoyed going to Bible study, visiting with friends and continuing the Lord’s work at Hartford Avenue Church of Christ.

Elna’s funeral service will be held at the Trout Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 2:00 pm, with Mr. Don Huddleston of Hartford Avenue Church of Christ, officiating. Five of Elna Walker’s grandsons will be casket bearers, Richard Nelsen, John Mark Nelsen, Kenneth Nelsen, Luke Nelsen and Brian Carson; Earl Isenberg will also serve as a casket bearer.  Burial will follow the service at Odd Fellows Cemetery.
