Barbara Bobbie L. Walker

Services for Barbara (Bobbie) L. Walker of Salado were private.

Bobbie Walker died September 1, 2011 at a local Temple hospital.  She was born July 3, 1930 in Mullins, S. C., and was raised by Washington Almon and Ann Norton Lonsford.

Bobbie was a graduate of University of Houston and was a speech pathologist for the Houston ISD for over 25 years. She also co-owned Maford Center, a learning center for special needs children. 

She was an avid animal advocate and had worked in wildlife rescue along the beaches of the Texas coastline.  After moving to her daughter’s ranch in Salado, she fed and cared for all the local animals.  Her dearest companions were her dogs, Murphy and K.T.

She is survived by her sister, Peggy Singletary of Thomasville, GA; her daughters Terri Walker of Austin/Lake Conroe and Kim Walker of Salado; her wonderful grandsons, Jeff, Bryan and Stephen Hetzel; her FOCs, Lori Wick and Javier Garcia; nieces, nephew, and grandnephews; and many other special friends.

In lieu of flowers, Bobbie would prefer donations to your favorite animal charity or Special Olympics. 

Arrangements are being handled by Broecker Funeral Home of Salado.
