Margaret I. Walker, age 89, of Arapahoe, Nebraska, died Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the C.A. Mues Good Samaritan Center in Arapahoe, Nebraska. She was born November 28, 1922 at the family farm north of Edison, Nebraska in Furnas County, Nebraska to Melvin & Mabel (Musik) Fisher.
As a young girl, she attended a rural school in the community where she lived. When her family moved to a farm north of Holbrook in 1939, Margaret attended Holbrook High School and graduated from there. On June 23, 1946, she married Herbert Walker in Norton, Kansas.
