Twin Falls, Idaho - Kathy M. Walker died of a sudden illness Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and daughter who will be greatly missed by all the people whose life she touched. She was extremely good natured, kind and sensitive to the needs and wants of almost everyone she met.
Kathy was born March 19, 1955, in Twin Falls, the third child of Kenneth and Barbara Davis. She married Terry Sonner in 1979 and to this union, Eric B. Sonner and Terry K. Sonner were born. They farmed in Bell Rapids and then took over the family farm in Buhl. They later divorced. She met Richard (Dick) Walker; they were married in 1995, and Sarah B. Walker was born. Sarah and Kathy had an incredibly close mother/daughter relationship. Kathy was always there for Sarah, attending all of her school functions and always trying to make all of her soccer games no matter where they played. She enjoyed going camping, riding ATVs, family functions, gardening and taking care of her grandchildren.
She attended St. Edwards Catholic School until eighth grade and then went to public schools until she graduated from Twin Falls High in 1973. In 1992, she went to CSI and graduated with an AA degree. After this, she went to ISU, with the intentions of receiving her bachelor’s in accounting. During the time she was attending college, she began working at WinCo Foods and was employed there until her unexpected death. She enjoyed her job and the many different co-workers she came to know.
Kathy is survived by her husband, Dick; daughter, Sarah; son, Eric (Christina) and his children, Teagan, Alex, Madeline, Zachary and baby in progress; son, Terry “Tyke” (Amanda) and his children, Miccael, Preston, Madison Tipton, Blayden Lowry and Kinsley; her father, Kenneth; siblings, Joe, Mike, Brent, Shanna and Tim; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, Barbara.
A celebration of life will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at Parke’s Magic Valley Funeral Home, 2551 Kimberly Road in Twin Falls. The family requests memorials in her name to the Nature Conservancy or the charity of one’s choice.
