Gill Walker died after a long battle with cancer on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at the age of 63 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 42 years, Allan Walker; sons, Brad (Carrie) Walker, Bobby Walker, and Jeff (Becky) Walker; grandchildren, Rylan, Mykena and Brookley; brother Robbie Taylor and family; sister Linda Toljanich and family; and many more family and friends. She was predeceased by her parents Dorothy and Robert Taylor. Gill was born and raised in Cranbrook. As a youth she was a part of the Cranbrook Girls Band, which she was always proud of. After her schooling years, she moved to Calgary, which has been her home ever since. Gill loved to help people, which was seen both in the amount of time she spent volunteering, especially with the Marlborough Community, and in her work with the Calgary Health Region for 30+ years. She loved to Knit, cook and bake but her greatest love was her family.
