Memories Timeline


  1. Mrs. Walker was my kindergarten teacher at Pueblo west elementary when there was only one elementary school. Back in 1989. I will always remember her. She not only played a role in my education, but I know she touched lives of so many of us kids that went on to graduate together.
    To the family: if it’s any comfort, Mrs. Walker is someone I will never forget. I will hold her close to my heart forever. Every teacher should strive to be like her. May she Rest In Peace.
    My condolences to the family.

  2. Dear Lynette,
    I was so sorry to read about your Mom in the paper. I have such good memories of her when we worked together at PWE. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  3. Mrs. Walker was a co-worker with me at Sierra Vista Elementary. She impacted so many in the community of Pueblo West. RIP sweet lady. <3

  4. I’m so sorry to hear this. I loved her. She was my sons kindergarten teacher and I enjoyed working with her for many years at Sierra Vista! Rest In Peace!

  5. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Barbara and I worked together at Pueblo West Elementary. Both of my children had Barbara as their kindergarten teacher and loved her deeply. She was the most patient, and gentle soul. Barbara touched hundreds of lives…children, parents, and fellow teachers. May God hold all of Barbara’s family tightly in His loving arms during this most difficult time. Barbara will be greatly missed!
