Bonnie Jean Walker was born on August 7, 1941, in Titus, Alabama, to Hezekiah and Catherine Walker. Affectionately known as Jean, she was a faithful servant of God and lived a life filled with peace and love.
She was baptized at an early age at Union No. 1 Baptist Church in Titus, Alabama. She was educated in the Titus Public School System. In the early 1960s, Bonnie relocated to Dayton, Ohio, where she was a proud member of St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of her beloved brother, Rev. Sylvester Walker.
Bonnie worked for more than 25 years at Delco Products Corp. and later in the Centerville Public School System, where she shared her positive spirit with the students and staff she interacted with daily.
Blessed with the gift of song, she was a longtime featured soloist in the St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church Choir and served as a member of the Kitchen Committee.
Cooking was more than a hobby—it was a passion, and her friends and family were always in for a special treat when they received a cake, a fresh batch of cookies, or her delicious homemade rolls.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Hezekiah and Catherine; stepmother, Zanie Walker; sister, Alberta; brothers, Emmitt, George, and Sylvester; grandson, Eric Ransom Walker; niece, Anita Faye Henderson Walker; and many aunts and uncles.
Bonnie Jean Walker leaves to cherish her loving memory to her son Reginald “Pete” (Kimberly Matthews); grandsons, Terrell and Isaiah; brother, James (Bernice); sister, Katheryn; sisters-in-law, Bertha, and Janie; a host of nieces and nephews; and extended family and friends, including special friend Eleanor Hobbs.
Bonnie was a wise, compassionate, and discerning Christian Woman, a loving mother, a cherished sister and aunt, a loyal friend, and a pet lover—particularly cats and dogs. Always encouraging others, she lifted the spirits of those she encountered, and her legacy of light and love will continue to warm our hearts for years to come.
