Mary Ellen Walker, 92, of Crosby passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Thursday, September 2, 2021. She was born on August 5, 1929 in Hebron, Mississippi to Robert and Lucille Pickering. She and her husband were faithful and dedicated members of First Baptist Church of Crosby from 1964 until the past couple of years when they continued to worship online. Growing up on a farm, Ellen, learned the value and necessity of hard work, a trait that lasted her for the rest of her life. She spent very little of her life sitting down. Our best memories were watching her interact with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and her “Mississippi” family and Crosby friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, Thomas and Gene Pickering. She is survived by her husband of 74 years, Jimmy; and by her sons Mike Walker and wife Debbie, and Mark Walker and wife Kathy; also her brother Charles and wife Margaret-Ann; and sister-in-law Karon; five grandchildren, Alan, Brian and wife Jennifer, Kevin and wife Liz, Brad and wife Lydia, and Blake; thirteen great-grandchildren, Kiersten, Ethan, Addie, Reed, Brooklyn, Bryce, Landon, Brynlee, Mason, Harper, Evan, Tanner and Ben; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
