With great sadness and overwhelming grief, we announce the passing of Karen Walker. Karen was a vivacious, determined, and amazing woman. She persevered through heartache and pain to love fearlessly.
Born in Montreal Quebec, Canada, she immigrated to California in her early twenties where she worked for the Almond Growers Association as a secretary. Karen raised her family in Clovis where she was an involved parent in the Clovis Swim Club and the Peak Race Team.
She earned her degree in Finance from Fresno State University in 1996 and managed the Cal-Pac office for twelve years, helping to innovate agricultural supplies for vineyards across the state. She finished her career working at the district office for the Kings County Unified School District then retired to Ventura County in 2010, where she assisted the raising of her grandson.
Karen is predeceased by her father Fredrick Walker, her brother Fredrick Walker Jr., her sister-in-law Annelie Walker, her mother-in-law Lucille Clyde, and father-in-law Kenneth Clyde. Most devastatingly, she is predeceased by her Granddaughter Mackenzie Rae Clyde.
Karen is survived by her mother Phyllis Walker, her brother Robert Walker, her daughter Kristina Clyde, her son Patrick Clyde, her son-in-law Andrew Breman, daughter-in-law Courtney Clyde, and her grandson Liam Breman. She is survived by her sisters-in-law Lynn, Wendy, and Katie, as well as her brother-in-law Tim, her niece’s Jamie (Adam), Sarah, Cheryl (Jason), Kara (Jake), and their children Byron, Callum, Amayiah, and Skylar.
Karen was the perfect example of class, sophistication, and true grit. The love and commitment to her family and friends is second to none. No truer proof was the love of her grand-babies and children.
