WALKER, Madeleine Marie Jean

February 21, 1930 – December 26, 2011

Madeleine Walker, beloved wife of Roland, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Monday, December 26, 2011 at the age of 81.

Madeleine was born in Meota, SK and grew up on the family farm with her three siblings. She moved to North Battleford where she joined the military as a Supply Technician in 1953. She was stationed at Sea Island before being posted to Comox, BC where she met Roland. In 1956, three years later, they were married. It was then she left the military and together, with Roland still a military member, moved to Cold Lake, Germany, Summerside, Greenwood, Ottawa and finally settled in Calgary to be near their children. During her many travels, Madeleine, along with her family and friends, loved to camp, her favourite places being English Bay and Lake Pleasant. Through the years Madeleine played many sports including softball, hockey, and broomball but her passion was golf. She was a skilled golfer and won many awards and tournaments. Madeleine also loved animals and would often be seen with a dog on her lap or wondering over to pet the horses in a nearby pasture.

Besides her husband Roland, Madeleine is also survived by her son Gordon of Calgary, daughter Patti and her partner Brenda of Cold Lake, AB and her beloved dog Jace. She was predeceased by her mother Ida, father Ralph, brothers Rowland and Maurice and her sister Rita.

  4. Growing up a ‘tom boy’ in the 70’s, Aunt Madeleine was one of the few female role models that showed me women can be rough n’ tumble, sporty, outspoken, and sharply witted. Giving me a glimpse into this seldom seen world helped me be ME as a young girl. Thank you, Aunt Madeleine.

    My condolences to the family,
    Susan Walker

    Uncle Ron, Patti and Gord,

    I will always remember the special times we were able to share with her when you lived in Ottawa. She always made me smile. I remember her passion for life, her “no nonsense” attitude and her love of all things “golf”. She will always have a special place in my heart.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you….
