Obituary for Dorothy Walker


Dorothy Jean (Wilson)Walker went to be eternally with her Father-Mother God on February 26th, 2017 . Dorothy was born on October 3rd, 1938 in Memphis, Tennessee. She grew up in the East Texas town of Hudson where she graduated Hudson High School and Married Clovis James Walker Sr. in 1956. Dorothy raised two sons, Clovis James Walker Jr., and John Douglas Walker while pursuing her bachelors degree at Stephen F. Austin University. She obtained her degree in education in 1966 at which time was the beginning of her journey to becoming what hundreds of students described as “ the best teacher in all of Texas”. Among Dorothy's many accomplishments during her life was the launch of her book, “Houston Heat” in August 1979. As the author of a published novel she was recognized for her writing talent as “Jaye Wilson”. Her love of teaching has always been the beautiful light that surrounded her and those that have received both knowledge as well as encouragement from her gift of teaching. Her passion for education lives on through the many lives that she so heavily impacted with her exemplary teaching techniques. Even in the year prior to her passing, she encouraged one of her nurses to go back to school and pursue higher education. Over her 27 years as a teacher she taught English, History, and Special Education grades 6-12, as well as adults. Her most recent residence was in Athens, Texas of Henderson County. Dorothy is survived by her Grandchildren: Susan Herring, and John Walker Jr. along with Nieces: Donna Wilson, Diann Taylor, Gail Taylor, Nephews: Brian Taylor, Joshua Ashby-Jones and several great-nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her Mother: Francis Ashby, Father: Joe Blum Ashby, Brother: Ronald Wilson, Sister: Ann Ashby-Jones, and Sons: Clovis James Walker Jr. and John Douglass Walker Sr.
Per Dorothy's wishes, there will not be a public funeral service.
The family asks anyone who knew her to send memories of her that they may have to: Memoriesofdorothywalker@gmail.com
