Walker, Donna Belle
November 17, 1946 — June 5, 2018
Donna Belle (Wagley) Walker age 71 of Raytown, MO, returned home to our heavenly Father June 5th, 2018 following a long battle with cancer that actually began all the way back in 1985. At the time of her passing her family and friends wrapped Donna in love.
Donna was born November 17, 1946 or earlier depending on who you ask, in a farmhouse outside Matthews, MO. Her original birth certificate was never sent to the state by the doctor and was lost. Consequently, there is some question of what year she was actually born since the original was lost. Of course, her son and grandsons would take every opportunity to remind her that she might actually be a year older then her new birth certificate indicated.
Donna was preceded in death by: her father Ardith (AW) Wagley, mother Mary Lou Wagley (Matthews, MO), beloved daughter Carrie Jo Northup (Raytown, MO) and brother Gary Wagley (New Madrid MO).
Donna is survived by: her loving faithful husband, Paul Walker (Raytown, MO), her son Paul T. Walker and his wife Tammy K. Walker (Grain Valley, MO), grandsons Seth and Caleb Walker, Cory and Tanner Northup, granddaughter Shelby Stanley, great granddaughter Addison Northup, sister Wanda Raper (Sikeston, MO), and brother Neal Wagley (Sikeston, MO) along with numerous brothers and sisters in Christ she considered her family as well.
Donna was a lifelong member of the Lord’s Church and attended church most of her life as a member of the Gregory Blvd. Church of Christ (Raytown, MO). Her hobbies and interests were simple. More than likely you would find her at Church, loving her family, quilting, or helping someone in need. She was never afraid to speak the truth in love, was good at providing a listening ear, and was a great example of the love of Christ. Every 4th of July she and some of her family would return to the Current River at Van Buren, MO to enjoy the beauty of the river, spend time with family, and reminisce of days gone by. It was during these trips she was most at peace. One of her biggest impacts was shepherding generations of young women and men with Godly advice in humility and love. She had the ability to tell you what you needed to hear in a kindhearted manner. Consequently, her influence and love will be sorely missed. She loved her husband, she loved her kids, she loved her grandkids, and more than likely, she loved you.
