Obituary for Betty Mae Walker

Betty Mae (Olson) Walker, 90, reunited with her family in heaven on September 21, 2018.

She was born November 9, 1927 to her loving parents, Axel E and Betzi (Johnson) Olson in Victor, Colorado. She was the fourth born out of seven children.
She grew up in Victor where she and her siblings played baseball, broke many windows, and playing baseball even caused Betty to have a permanent bump on her head. She and her siblings had a wonderful childhood with many adventures, and wild memories. Her favorite memories had to do with her mother's wonderful cooking, running around outdoors, and playing in their playhouse.
She graduated from Victor High School in 1945. On August 31, 1947 Betty married the love of her life Jack Walker. Together they had one daughter, Laraine Walker Martyn. They raised their daughter while owning and operating Harshier Corner in Victor, but later moved to Canon City in August of 1971.
Betty held many jobs in Canon including the power plant, hospice, meals on wheels, and political offices. She loved talking politics, listening to music, and being around family and friends. Betty really enjoyed listening to Jimmy Buffett, and was the oldest parrot head in Fremont County.
Betty is survived by her siblings, Norman Olson, Mary Lou Scofield, and Shirley Beach; grandchildren, Chandra Martyn, Bret Martyn, Lane Martyn; great-grandchildren, Alyssa Martyn, Tristen Lehnhoff, Chad Martyn, and Tyler Martyn.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Axel and Betzie Olson; husband, Jack Walker; daughter, Laraine Walker Martyn; brothers, Axel R. and Ernest Olson; sister, Dagny Chambers;
The family would like to thank Skyline Ridge Nursing Home and Stephanie Hales to the care they gave her in her final years. Also a special thank you to Kathleen Shoemaker and Kathy Smith for their love, and help they provided. Fins to the left, fins to the right, we hope you're enjoying your cheeseburger in paradise.
