Ms. Walker was preceded in death by her husband, Hugh, and parents, Ruby and Ollie Buckner. She is survived by her son, Craig and wife Jane, and her twin daughters, Sandy Cunningham and boyfriend Brian and Cathy Gehring and husband Lee. She also leaves behind her sister, Gloria Goebel; her brother, Ken Buckner; and five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Dorothy was well-known as a kind and loving person. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
