Ms. Walker, an antiques dealer, writer, and retired social worker, died on April 4, 2005. She was 58. She was born July 2, 1946 in Dansville, NY, the town where her parents, grandparents, and many generations of relatives had lived. Her father was the late Norbert Walker, a retired career officer in the US Army.
