Beatrice Walker Obituary

Beatrice Glanton Walker, affectionately referred to as “Granny Bea”, “Aunt Bea” and “Ma Bea”, was born on March 16, 1931 to the late Jesse and Trudy Glanton in Clopton, Alabama, but was raised by the late Tony and Priss McGlown.


Beatrice joined the Rocky Mount Baptist Church after marrying Robert C. Walker to whom she was married for forty-three years until the time of his passing in 1991. She was preceded in death by her sons Frederick, Randolph and Robert Earl Walker and her grandsons, Hayward Rowles and Randall Conrad Walker. She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Nellie McLeod, Gertrude Ward, Louise Peterman, Sno Ann Butler, Lula Bea Thompson, Dora Mae Peterson, Henry McGlown, George McGlown, Willie McGlown, and Roy Lee McGlown.


Beatrice was educated at Henry County Training School and later became a caregiver and housekeeper for various families in the community. She was employed with Henry County Nursing Home where she retired.


Beatrice was a lover of Christ and was a faithful and active member until her transitioning. She was known in the community for having “endless pots” because she would cook enough to feed a village. Beatrice was a woman who loved her family and genuinely welcomed any and every one who entered her home. Her favorite season was Spring because it allowed her to enjoy God’s beautiful creations especially her flowers.


She took her rest and received her wings in the most peaceful and graceful way on Tuesday, July 18, 2023, at home surrounded by the presence of God and her loving family just how she would have wanted.


Beatrice leaves to cherish her memories her devoted children, Mertice Linton (Booker Scrivens) of Naples, FL; Carolyn Hill (James Price) of Abbeville, AL; Eddie James Walker (Angela) of Abbeville, AL; Bobbie Walker Lynn of Abbeville, AL; Linda Walker Clark (Michael) of Daleville, AL; Robbie Walker Reynolds of Abbeville, AL; Perry Walker of Daleville, AL; and  Denise Walker Moonschein (Mark) of Daleville, AL; a special sister-in-law, Zora Walker of Naples, FL; seventeen grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
