Shirley was born on February 15th, 1938 to Lloyd and Margaret (Berg) Johnson in Bot- tineau, North Dako- ta. She was raised on the family farm. near Overly, North Dakota. She attend- ed grade school in Overly and then graduated from W'fl- low City High School, the class of 1956. She complet- ed her education at Minot State Teacher's College, earning her standard teaching cer- tificate and license. Following college, Shirley taught grade school at Sherman Public School near Mohall for one year, in the Rolette Public School for two years and also did substitute teaching in the Willow City School for a few years. On June 17th, 1961, she was united in marriage to Warren Walk- er at the Willow Creek Lutheran Church in Overly. The couple made their home on a farm south- west of Willow City and was blessed with three children, Kim- bedy, Nancy and Shane. During this time, Shirley was active in the Willow City Public School PTO, music and band boosters. She was an active member in. the First Presbyterian Church of Willow City and served as president and secretary of the Presbyterian Women. She also taught Sunday school and was the church organ- ist for over 25+ years. Shirley and her soul mate War- ren, worked side-by-side for over 36 years on the farm and ranch, She enjoyed cooking, baking, raising her children and assisting her hus- band in anyway she could. It was quite common for Shirley to wash and hang out clothes, make dinner, mow grass, help move machinery, go on parts nms, haul grain and still have supper on the table when the day was done. In her spare time, if she had any at all, she also enjoyed gardening, sewing, playing the or- gan and piano and canning. She was in 7th heaven when the grandchildren were around and al- ways took time to listen to their stories. Warren died sud- denly on March 13th 1998, break- ing Shirley's heart. She continued to help her son on the farm through the years until failing health forced her to slow down. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmoth- er and homemaker.
