Wilda Walker was born in Ville Platte on October 21, 1925 to Avie Fontenot and Atile Vidrine. Wilda was a kind and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Raising her family was her greatest joy. It’s hard to fully describe how amazing a person she was. She was truly blessed with humor, awesome cooking skills, and the heart of a lion. Possessing a gentle and kind spirit, she loved unconditionally and never treated anyone differently, no matter what they had done or been through. She always had a smile on her face and welcomed everyone with a big hug. She will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by those she loved.

Walker and wife, Jennifer of Ville Platte; ten grandchildren, Wendy Dupre, Donavan Walker, Kayla Latiolais, Brandy Walker, Lee Ann Swartzentruber, Will Uithoven, Ashley Walker, Cassie Shackleton, Jack D. Walker, and Joseph W. Walker; and 18 great grandchildren; and three great great grandchildren.
