Elizabeth Louisa Walker, lovingly known as Betty, passed away at the age of 80 on September 7th, 2023 in Frederick, MD. She was born on March 15th, 1943 in Washington DC to Henry and Elizabeth (Witherell) Walker.
Betty lived a life dedicated to caring for others and making a positive impact on the lives of those around her. After graduating from Northwestern High School, she embarked on a remarkable journey that touched the hearts of many. For the first two decades of her career, Betty owned and operated a child day care center. During this time, she nurtured and shaped countless young minds, making a lasting impression on both children and their families.
In the subsequent years, Betty's boundless compassion led her to another noble calling: caring for Alzheimer's patients. For two decades, she selflessly devoted herself to providing comfort and support to those affected by this debilitating disease.
Beyond her professional achievements, Betty cherished spending time with her family. Her loved ones held a special place in her heart, and she always made sure to prioritize them above all else.
Betty leaves behind a legacy that will continue to inspire kindness and generousity for years to come. She is survived by Erica Louise Hoff (daughter), Robert Frederick Hoff III (son), Deven Scott Norton (grandson), Trevor Eric Norton (grandson), Robert Paul Walker (twin brother), and Carolyn Lillian Walker (sister). Her sister, Virginia Rachel Corson, preceded her in death.
Surrounded by loved ones, Betty peacefully transitioned from this world to the next. While she may no longer be physically present, her spirit and the impact she had on others will live on.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association in Elizabeth's honor. Let us remember her as the caring, generous, and kind-hearted individual she was, embracing the love and joy she shared with all of us.
Elizabeth Walker, you will forever hold a special place in our hearts. May your soul find eternal peace as you reunite with your loved ones who have gone before you. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
