Florence Walker

Florence Walker, of Casper, Wyoming, passed away peacefully on Dec. 25, 2021, at the age of 88.

Florence moved to Dillon with her family in 1962 and resided there until they moved to Casper in 2010. She was a longtime schoolteacher who had a passion for learning. One of her favorite sayings was “can’t never tried,” a mantra she truly lived by.

She had a penchant for cake decoration, knew how to grow a bountiful garden, was known by friends and family for her beautiful quilts, enjoyed genealogy, and was successful at whatever she put her mind to. Florence was a loving, wonderful mother who encouraged her children and grandchildren to be good, hardworking, kind people.

Florence is survived by her two sons, John and Lyle (Joyce) of Dillon; her daughter Sara (Hank) Osborne of Casper; five grandchildren, Andrea, Ashley, Clint, Dustin, and Jaydean; in addition to multiple great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ira (Ike) in 2014.
