  1. Willie and family, It would be hard to find a more lovely and classy lady than Marian. She was an amazing grandma who never missed a school event. She was a staple in the Johannesburg community and welcoming to all. She opened her home to our Euchre club for years and than whipped us at cards! She will missed. Love to all you, Tracy and Bob Renkiewicz

  2. So sorry for your loss. She was a very good woman. We hope Willy is doing ok. Please let us know when the memorial is. May God be with you at this time. Love to all.

    We send our condolences to the entire Walker family. Although there will be an empty chair at the holiday table, may you find peace in knowing that she was highly respected by many and loved by all of us in our card club! Wherever she may be, we’re sure she is sitting on a lay down loner! Rest in peace our dear friend!

  4. Marian will be missed by many! She was so gracious in allowing our card club to play at the Walker home for all those years. She was indeed a wonderful friend to all of us.
