Katie "Sue" Walker


Katie "Sue" Walker, 78, of Roxboro, passed away Monday, December 28,
2020. She was born September 14, 1942, the daughter of the late Rosa Belle
Terry Walker and Marvin Colon Walker of Hillsborough NC. Sue was also
preceded in death by her beloved eldest son James Bryan Wade.

Sue graduated from Hillsborough High School in 1960 and was voted senior
superlative "prettiest" by classmates. She was a devoted mother and
beautiful woman inside and out. Her love of music and strong Christian faith
led her to sing in the New Sharon United Methodist Church choir in
Hillsborough for more than a decade. After moving to Roxboro in 2006, she
became a devoted congregant of Antioch Baptist Church in Timberlake NC. In
2012, after a gratifying 49-year career, Sue retired from the Duke Health
System as Service Access Manager of the North Duke Street Clinic in Durham

Sue is survived by beloved son Jason Brandt Wade of Roxboro and
granddaughter Kennedy Erin Wade. Also surviving are two brothers: Harold
Winfred Walker and Marvin Wayne Walker (both of Hillsborough, NC); three
sisters: Gayle Walker Long (of Roxboro NC), Ann Walker Glenn (of
Hillsborough NC) and Bonnie Carol Walker (of Hendersonville NC). Surviving
nieces and nephews: Cindy Ciociola, Kimberly Long Mitchell, Teresa Long
Hall, Devin Walker Compton, Carly Walker Faulkenbury, and Harold Walker Jr.
Surviving grand nieces and nephews: Amanda Walker Martin and son Tristan,
Abigail Walker, Victoria Parham, Bryan Parham, Carter Hall, and Emerson

A celebration of life will be held at Antioch Baptist Church at a date yet
to be decided. Details will be forthcoming via family members. In lieu of
flowers, the family will appreciate donations to Antioch Baptist Church
Building Fund, P.O. Box 185, Timberlake NC 27583.
