     Sharon “Sherry” Kay (Harper) Walker was born September 4, 1940, to Glen and Beulah “Billie” (Wilson) Harper in Iowa Falls, Iowa. The family moved to Ottumwa and Dow City, Iowa before settling in Dunlap, Iowa. Sherry attended school in Dow City and Dunlap and worked at her parent’s creamery business. On March 18, 1957, Sherry married Dwayne “Doak” Walker. The couple was blessed with three children. Sherry’s father passed away and her mother then married Frank Humlicek. Frank was a pharmacist and operated the Dunlap Pharmacy. Sherry worked there for many years until Frank retired and closed the pharmacy. Sherry then worked for Apothecary in Woodbine, with Gerri and Murray Hubbard and Jack Hinze, as a sales rep to other pharmacies. She also worked for the Veterans Administration in Omaha for 24 years. She was smart and a very hard worker. She held several positions in the payroll department as she climbed the corporate ladder. The last several years of her employment she was a secretary in the research department where she continued to process payroll for several doctors per their request. Sherry retired from the VA in 2005 due to her diagnosis of dementia.

 

     Sherry had enjoyed camping and reading books. Doak lovingly cared for Sherry for many years in their home. Following a stay in the hospital it was necessary for Sherry to then transfer to the nursing home.

 

     Sherry died on Friday, September 1, 2023, at Ariza Health Rose Vista Nursing Home in Woodbine at the age of 82 years, 11 months and 27 days.

 

     Sherry was preceded in death by her parents; step-father; brother, Neal Harper, step-sister, Connie Brink; and great-granddaughter, Ray Lynn Johnson.
