Homegoing of Former Missionary

Mrs. Ruby Marie Walker, former missionary to Guinea, passed into the presence of the Lord on June 26, 2009. She was 87 years old.

Ruby Marie Brown was born on September 30, 1921, in Clymer, New York. She graduated from Clymer Central High School and attended Jamestown Business College for two years. Ruby accepted Jesus into her heart as a teenager. Sensing God’s call on her life, she attended the Missionary Training Institute (now Nyack College) in Nyack, New York, following the end of World War II. 

Ruby completed her home service at the Blundon Orphanage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and departed for Paris, France, in 1952 to study French. Six months later, she arrived in Guinea where she served faithfully from 1952 to1966 to advance God’s Kingdom among the people of Guinea. Robert (Bob) Walker came to Guinea on a short-term missions trip to help the field with electrical repairs and construction work. It was love at first sight, and Miss Walker returned to the United States to marry Bob.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, June 30.  Ruby was predeceased by her husband, Robert. She is survived by two sisters: Fern Jennings of Springfield, Virginia, and Florence Walker of Sebring, Florida.
