Obituary for Margaret D. Walker

Margaret D. Walker was born Doreen Mabel Robertson on March 2, 1935 in Mafeking, Manitoba, Canada. She had a younger sister, Irene, and a younger brother, Peter. She lost her father when she was six and her brother Peter the next year. Her mother Della moved them to Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, remarried, and had two more children, Charlie Brown and Patsy Barker.

Margaret left home at fifteen and found work in department stores in Winnipeg and then Toronto. She met her husband Charles in Minneapolis three years later.

Charles and Margaret were married May 10, 1953 and had eight children. They lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota then moved to Bryant, South Dakota then to Ida Grove, Iowa.

Margaret worked in restaurants as a waitress, as a dispatcher for the Ida County Sheriff's Department, owned and operated a carpet cleaning business, and volunteered as a paramedic. She completed a degree at Buena Vista University in her 50’s and worked as an AFLAC insurance agent until retirement.

Margaret loved spending time with her grandchildren. In her leisure time she enjoyed reading, quilting, knitting, or crocheting. As a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ida Grove she found comfort and hope in the love of Jesus.

Margaret passed peacefully at Odebolt Specialty Care November 4, 2018 from complications associated with dementia. She had been blessed with 83 years of life. In addition to her parents, Margaret was preceded in death by her husband Charles, three of her daughters, Carol, Karen, and Joyce, her son Brian, and her brother Peter. She is survived by three of her sons, David, James, and Dale, one daughter Della, fourteen grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, two sisters, Irene McClennan and Patsy Barker, and brother, Charlie Brown.
