Louise S. Walker was born on July 12, 1922, in Craven, Louisiana, the second of three children to Edward Stringer, Sr., and Willie Zelma Stringer (Holt).
Louise moved to Galveston, Texas with her family as a child. She attended George Washington Carver Elementary School and she graduated from Central High School in 1940. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at an early age and held membership with Shiloh A.M.E. Church, Galveston, Texas, where she served on the usher board, was a member of the senior choir, and served as secretary of the church under the pastorage of Reverend J. C. Oliphant. In 1959 Louise and her family moved to California. There she took business courses and was employed with the U.S. Department of Social Security Administration.
In 1967 Louise was united in holy matrimony to Frazier Walker with whom she shared her life with for 41 years. Louise and Frazier returned to Texas to spend their retirement years where they resided in League City, Texas. Louise was excited about reuniting with her home church, Shiloh A.ME., and remained a faithful member until her passing.
Louise had a nurturing spirit and was lovingly called "Little Nannie" by her many nieces and nephews and extended family. She enjoyed being an active part of family events and celebrations. She was a loving mother-figure to all and enjoyed sharing old family photos and the stories behind each. She was a walking history book. Louise was also an avid fisher-woman, a joy she shared with her husband.
