Age 82 passed away August 1, 2021 at Park Manor Nursing Home. The staff from Park Manor had tremendous support for her during her journey there and her family will be eternally grateful for that and thank them so much. She was born November 1, 1938 to Harley and Arlene (Cochran) Morgan in Park Falls WI. On December 27, 1962 she married Gilbert “Gilly” R. Walker in Butternut where they raised their 3 children. She found joy spending time with her family, friends and loved ones. Before going into the nursing home she always had a grandchild or two sleeping over. Her joy was having them around her and always telling them stories. Her quick wit and funny remarks will be greatly missed. Carol was a CNA at Park Manor for over 25 years. All the love and care she gave to so many during that time was given back to her by so many while she was in the nursing home.
