Florence E. Walker

Florence E. Walker was a woman of many interests, the foremost of which was her family and her many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Mrs. Walker died Friday, Aug. 3, at her Grafton home at the age of 92.
Mrs. Walker was born DATE in Milwaukee to Josephine and Walter Laganowski. She met her future husband, Neal Walker, when she was working at a photo lab in Milwaukee.
“He was making deliveries to the photo lab and they hit it off,” their daughter, Cindy Walker, said.
They were married on May 3, 1947, at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Milwaukee. They moved to Cedarburg in the mid-1960s. Mrs. Walker was primarily a stay-at-home mother to their four children, one of whom, a daughter, Sherrie, died in 1996.
She worked part-time at Boston Store and the Red Owl grocery store in Cedarburg, her daughter said.
Mrs. Walker was known for her sense of humor and loved to travel with her husband until he died in 2003, her daughter said. She also enjoyed gardening and was known for her flower beds. She played bingo every Thursday night and had a chocolate shake from McDonald’s almost daily, her daughter said.
Mrs. Walker is survived by her children, Peggy (Steven) Roads of Albemarle, N.C., Cindy (Rick Selensky) Walker of Grafton, Mike (Leticia) Walker, of Corona, Calif.; grandchildren Jennifer Weiszer, Tim Roads, Elisa (Josh) Grunwaldt, Steven (Leslie) Roads, Katelyn (Joel) Caudillo, Lindsay (Dave Hudack) Barelmann, Kelly (Dylan Anagnoustopolous) Barelmann, Justin Ojala, Jeff Barelmann and Shawn Walker; and eight great grandchildren.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Grafton. Visitation will be held from 9 to 10:45 a.m. at the church. Burial will follow at Zur Ruhe Cemetary in Cedarburg.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to Horizon Hospice or to St. Joseph’s Catholic Church are suggested.
