A lifelong resident of Greene County, she was born the daughter of Anderson Crawford Moore and Annie Lou Veazey Moore on August 14, 1930. Following grammar school years in White Plains, Georgia, she graduated from Greensboro High School with the class of 1947 and then proceeded to attend Athens Business College. Upon completing that program, she worked as a cashier for Life Insurance Company of Virginia for several years before returning to Greensboro. On July 14, 1951, she and Franklin Deleon Walker were married and together they enjoyed the country and farm life.
