Janette P. Walker

EDMOND —     Janette P. Walker, 89, of Edmond, Okla., formerly of Sweetwater, Texas died November 7, 2013. She was born in Boynton, Okla. to Nellie and Emmett Perkins.

    Janette had great faith and was a dedicated member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. She loved to play cards, read, cook for her friends and family, and crochet, among other things. She was happiest when surrounded by her friends and family. She had a big heart and her door was always open.

Walker of OKC; niece Janelle Haley; nephews Pete, Mike, Gary Perkins and their families; her loving grandchildren Emily Boggan Wineland and her husband Andre Wineland, Ashley Boggan and two great grandchildren West and Graham Wineland, and many great nieces and nephews.

    The family would like to thank you for your prayers and support during this difficult time.

    A viewing was 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013 at Hahn-Cook/Street & Draper.

    A memorial service was 2 p.m. Monday, November 11, 2013 at Westminster Presbyterian Church.  

    In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to benefit the Westminster music department be made in Janette’s name to Westminster Presbyterian Church, or other charities of your choice.
