                Mary Virginia was born on September 29, 1933 in rural Valley County, Nebraska to Louie and Martha (McNamee) Chilewski.  Virginia grew up in Comstock, Nebraska and graduated from Comstock High School in 1950.  After graduation she moved to Broken Bow and worked at Holcomb Pharmacy until meeting the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Walker Jr. at the home of mutual friends while he was home on leave.  After a short courtship of letters Bob returned home and they were married on October 26, 1953.  To this union five children were born:  Karen, Kathy, Robert III, Kelli, and Kori.  The family made their home wherever the Navy sent them until Bob’s retirement in 1973.  They then moved to Wellsville, Kansas where Bob was an electrician and as she always did, Virginia continued to keep the home clean, everyone well-fed and happy, she was a wonderful homemaker!  Upon Bob’s father’s death in 1975, the family decided to move home to Nebraska to farm and ranch, retiring from that and moving to town in the early 1990’s.  They moved to Callaway when Bob’s health helped made the decision to be closer to his doctor and their church, and then when Bob was in need of dialysis it made the decision to move to Kearney necessary.  Virginia decided to move back to Callaway after Bob’s death in 2019 and made her home in Callaway until the time of her death.
