Walker, Jessie (1862–1932)

from Canberra Times

The death occurred in Sydney on Saturday, after an illness lasting for some months, of Jessie Walker, wife of the Rev. D. John Walker, of St. Andrew's Manse, Canberra.

The late Mrs. Walker was well-known in Canberra as an ardent helper of the Rev. Dr. Walker in church work, a role in which she had been noted also at Ballarat during the nineteen years of Ministry of her husband there and previously at Woollahra, Sydney. The deceased was a daughter of the late Arthur Dight, of Claredon Park, Richmond, and Darling Point, Sydney, and her marriage with Dr. Walker was celebrated in 1888. The funeral will be held at Waverley Cemetery today following a service at the Woollahra Presbyterian Church.
