It is with our deepest and heartfelt sympathy we inform you of the passing from this life of Mrs. Margaret Reed Walker, age 76, a resident of 468 Brunswick Circle, Stockbridge, Henry County, GA. Ms. Walker transitioned from this life on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at her residence in Stockbridge.
Ms. Margaret Reed was born in Roanoke, Randolph County, Alabama on December 5, 1943 to the parentage of the late Ms. Maudie Ruth Reed, a native Chambers Countian. She confessed Christ at an early age. She attended and graduated from Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind in Talladega, Alabama. In her younger years, Margaret was blessed with two sons, who she raised to be responsible, contributing citizens of Alabama and Georgia. About ten years ago, she left home to live in the Atlanta area where she remained until her passing. Over her lifetime, Margaret held employment as a seamstress for more than thirty years. While residing in the Atlanta area, she joined Crusselle-Freeman Church Of the Deaf, in Southwest Atlanta.
To all who knew and loved Margaret, she was a very special lady. She loved sewing, hairstyling and baby-sitting. She taught American Sign Language to all the children she encountered. She was the former wife of the late Johnny Paul Walker, who preceded her in death in 2002. She was also preceded in death by her mother, Mandil, along with all of her aunts and uncles. Having undergone an extended illness spanning more than three years, Margaret retreated from mortal life and transitioned from this life on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at her residence in Stockbridge.
Margaret is survived by two (2) sons: Vincent Edwards Taylor (LaShaundra Taylor) and John Lewis Walker; six (6) grandchildren: Detria Staples, Alexas Taylor, Quinton Taylor, Quincy Taylor, Vinson Taylor, and Lauren Taylor; and finally but not least, a host of family and friends.
