Obituary for Shirley Ann Walker

Shirley Ann Walker, age 82 of Round Lake, died peacefully on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at South Shore Care Center in Worthington, MN.
Shirley was the daughter of Harvey and Ruth Miller, born on March 9, 1934 in Spirit Lake, IA. The family lived in Lake Park and Shirley attended school there for a short time before moving to Round Lake. Shirley graduated from Round Lake High School in 1951.
On December 21, 1954, Shirley and Paul Walker were married in Sioux Falls, SD. They made their home in Round Lake raising their two sons Jeff and Monte.
Shirley began working for Swanson's in 1954 which became the Campbell Soup Company two years later. She continued to work there for 40 years until her retirement in 1996. In addition, Shirley and Paul managed the Halter Manor apartments in Round Lake for many years. Shirley was an active and dedicated member of the First Presbyterian Church in Round Lake.
Shirley was a very witty, hardworking, generous and dedicated individual who loved visiting with everyone. She was very passionate about helping others. She cherished spending time with her children and grandchildren. Shirley's passion of collecting Campbell Soup Collectibles and antiques are evident throughout her home. The Daily Globe once did an article on Paul and Shirley and their house known as the Campbell Soup house in Round Lake.
Shirley is survived by her two sons, Jeff Walker of Wisconsin, and Monte Walker and his wife, Lori of Worthington, MN; a grandson, Alex Walker; granddaughter, Jenny Walker; and other family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul; parents; and her brother, Robert Miller.
