Obituary

“I” have fought a good fight, “I” have finished my course, “I” have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8

Mrs. Nettie Louise Walker-O’Reggio was the daughter of the Mr. Louis “Gus” and Mrs. Earline H. walker. She was born October 10, 1951. Nettie answered her call to the Almighty and Creator on Saturday, November 26, 2022.

Nettie accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and joined Friendship African Methodist Episcopal Church under the leadership of Reverend Baylor. While she later moved her membership, her love for her local church remained steadfast.
