Grace Katherine Walker, age 20, of Fayetteville, Ark., passed away on Friday, December 16, 2022. She was born June 11, 2002, in Fayetteville, Ark. Grace was known to all as a truly pure and sweet soul, fully living up to her first name every day in the face of a lifelong battle with a rare and severe form of epilepsy. If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes a very special village to raise a child like Grace. She was loved and cared for by her parents, her sister, her extended family, and her friends and teachers in the special needs program throughout her time at Fayetteville Public Schools. We are immensely grateful for all of them. She gave more to us all than she ever took. Survivors are her parents, Timothy Bernard Walker, and Kathi Joy Richardson Walker; a sister, Emily Katherine Walker; a paternal grandmother, Sharon Walker. A memorial service will be planned and announced for a future date.
