Beth Ann (nee Bishop) Walker, of Cedar Grove, passed away on May 5, 2021 at the age of 55. She was born on Sept 21, 1965 in Rochester, NY to Clyde and Joyce (neeFraley) Bishop. Beth’s family moved all over the country, however they landed in Harrison and she attended William Henry Harrison High School where she caught the eye of a young man in her class, Dale Walker. They got to know each other better on their senior class trip and the rest was history. They graduated in 1983, then attended University of Cincinnati. Dale and Beth married on September 5, 1987 and started a new chapter in life. They traveled the country as well and were blessed with three children: David Ward, Nicholas Berke and Kathryn Gayle. Beth was diagnosed with Lupus in 1996 and shortly there after the decision was made to move back to Harrison to be home again. She started working for Kroger and worked as a Human Resources Manager retired due to health issues. Traveling was a big part of her life and she loved family trips. Her in-laws, more like adopted parents, remember the fun trip to Yellowstone, where she was so excited to see all of the animals of the park except two. Beth also enjoyed crafting, crocheting, and quilting. She loved making cards for friends and family members on special days and reached out via phone on a regular basis just to say hello and catch up. Beth was so easy to love and was loved by many, especially her husband Dale; her loving children and their spouses: David (Erika) Walker, Nicholas (Katelyn) Walker, Kathryn (Chad) Cullen; cherished granddaughter: Aurora Skye Walker; beloved siblings: Brenda Ballinger, Tim (Carrie) Bishop; Father & Mother-in-law: Ted and Kathie Walker; brothers-in-law: Brian (Donna) Walker and David (Michele) Walker.
