January 14, 1930 - November 24, 2018


On Saturday, 24 November 2018, Anna Mae Walker of Atco; sweet and spiritual person, devoted spouse of the late Frank, loving mother of three children, generous and gentle soul by word and deed, finally found her way into the arms of her love, Jesus Christ.

Anna Mae, an ordained minister, would not hesitate to tell you that her proudest achievement was in helping to found Mission Teens, Inc. a free, non-denominational Christian discipleship program helping people to be delivered from addiction, in 1969. The center has rescued countless souls over that course of time.

Anna Mae bravely and generously conducted bible classes every Monday for over 40 years at Ancora and other local prisons. It was, in fact her most beloved thing to do outside of family. Anna Mae would allow nothing to prevent her from missing a single week of bible study with “her guys” until she became physically unable to continue.

Anna Mae (nee Alloway), age 88, was the wife of the late Frank J. Loving mother of Steven, Bruce (Trish), and Laura. Dear grandmother of Gwyn McGeady (Tim), Harry (Kristen Mosca), Emily, and Chayton and great grandmother of Aiden Rose, Nora Bean, Timothy, and the late Michael. Sister of the late Harry Alloway.

There will be a viewing from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday, December 1st at GARDNER FUNERAL HOME, RUNNEMEDE.

Funeral Service 12 noon at the funeral home.

Interment New St. Mary’s Cemetery, Bellmawr.

In lieu of flowers, we are sure that Anna Mae would have been appreciative of donations, however large or small, to Mission Teens, P. O. Box 131, Glendora, NJ 08029.
