Virginia Mae Williams

May 1, 1929 ~ Oct. 8, 2020

Virginia Mae Williams, 91, of Myrtle Point, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, October 8, 2020 at her home. She was born on May 1, 1929, in Trout Lake, Washington, to Floyd “Dusty” Rhoades and Vera Elizabeth (Atkins) Rhoades.

After attending her grade school years at Charleston Elementary School, they moved to Eureka, California. In 1947, she graduated from Eureka High School. She married Norman Walker on September 20, 1947 and they had four daughters. She was a loving wife and a wonderful, caring mom. Her life was a constant testimony of her unselfish love and generosity. Most important in her life was her love for God and her family. We miss her so.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 49 years Norman Walker; daughter, Dixie Walker; parents, Floyd and Vera Rhoades; and her sister, Barbara Rhoades.
