Anne Carolyn Whitehead Walker passed away at home on Monday, February 25, 2013 after a seven-year battle with cancer.

Anne was born in Maryland, spent her early childhood in California, and was a long time resident of Washington State, graduating from Stadium High School in Tacoma.

Anne worked in insurance and advertising agencies in the Seattle area and also was a member of the Suncadia Resort staff. Anne's family is especially grateful to Suncadia for their extraordinary support during Anne's illness.

Anne's joy of life was reflected in everything she did-she radiated love and enduring commitment to her family and friends with a great sense of humor and perspective. She loved to travel and enjoyed cruises and trips to England, Tahiti, Mexico, and Hawaii. She created beautiful homes for her family, most recently the one in Teanaway, near Cle Elum.

In addition to her many friends, her family is mourning their loss: Her loving husband Richard (Dick) Walker and devoted daughter Courtney Meaden (Parypa), son-in-law George Meaden, and former husband Larry Parypa; precious grandchildren Hayden, McKenna, and Cameron; her mother Jan Harris, her brother Wayne Whitehead, and her sisters Patricia (Parypa) and Nancy (Gross); and several nieces and nephews and brothers and sisters-in-law.

A memorial service is planned for Saturday, March 16th at the Lake Wilderness Lodge in Maple Valley beginning at 2 p.m. There will be a reception to celebrate Anne's life after the service.

Anne's family asks that friends consider contributions in her name to Home Health and Hospice in Ellensburg, the , or their favorite charities in lieu of flowers.
