Ruth was born the daughter of Elburn S. and Clydie A. (Carter) Burk on April 15, 1938, in Tahlequah. She passed from this life on Jan. 27, 2012 from Tulsa.
She married at 14 to Andrue Walker on Memorial Day, 1952. They were married 47 years, until his passing in 1999.
Her life's work was her extreme devotion to her family as wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Always giving from her heart, she cared for others before herself and was sure no one went hungry.
Preceding her in death are her parents; a son, Andrew Allen Walker; and her husband, Andrue.
She is survived by her son, Robert Walker and his wife Mary of Park Hill; five grandchildren, Stephen Walker and wife Angela, Wayne Walker, Melody Brook Walker, Adam Walker, and Deborah Kate Walker; three great-grandchildren, Haley Walker, Braxton, Walker, and Abigail Walker; and a sister, Betty Jo Ragsdale; other relatives, friends and loved ones.
