Virginia Betty Walker Grant

Betty Virginia Walker is the fourth daughter of Ray and Gladys Walker. She, like her other five siblings born of Ray, was raised by Ural Walker, who married Gladys following a divorce. I don’t have much information about Betty, and the little I have in written form is from the Family History Hull-Delany 1984-1990. Betty writes in this book that she tells how her mother dying in St. Ignatius and her sisters, Iris, Dorothy and Patricia were caring for her. For many years Betty lived on the Frank D. Walker’s ranch at Coriander.

Following the death of he husband, Peter, in 1963, Betty was a lady rancher. Two children were born, Marilyn and Marvin. Both children grew up on the ranches and remain in Val Marie, closely aligned to the rural lifestyle. Betty and Peter Grant were married in 1947.
