June 11, 1912 ~ April 28, 2021
Mrs. Lizzie Walker-Traylor was born on a Tuesday, June 11, 1912 in Cason, Texas. Her parents were Pastor Albert Fleming and Mariah Doddy-Fleming. She was the seventh child of eight children born to this union.
Lizzie was a hard working, Christian woman that was not ashamed to confess her faith in Christ; and in so doing, she was instrumental in bringing souls to Christ or encouraging souls to return to Christ. She taught children's Sunday School classes for several years. Additionally, for many years, she was the president of the Christian Women's Fellowship (CWF). This organization was instrumental in sending many young people to the Youth Conferences.
She was an avid farmer and loved, as she called it, "working in the dirt." She always had a beautiful garden and willingly shared her crops with all other people and their families. She never charged for any of her vegetables; however, her fondest passion was quilting. She had many beautiful quilts. She often gave her quilts as Christmas gifts to her children and other family members. Each of her children and grandchildren have beautiful quilts from her. As a gesture of kindness, she also gave quilts away to families in need.
Lizzie was the lone survivor of Albert and Mariah's children. Her siblings were Tommy Fleming, Martha Fleming-Gholston, Will Fleming, Carrie Fleming-Evans, Roosevelt "Rose" Fleming, Vallie Fleming-Rodgers, Minnie Fleming-Adair and Sattie Mae Fleming-Pitts.
She was the proud mother of eight children, L.T. Harper (deceased) her first born. She later married Loycie Townsy; to this union three children were born; Robert Townsy (deceased) and Loycie Towns-Leigons (Loycie was a twin). Her twin sister died in infancy. After Mr. Townsy's death, she married Fletcher Walker; four children were born to this union, Charles (Jeanie) Walker, Jo Ann Walker (deceased), Gloria Walker and F.W., Jr. After the death of Mr. Walker, Lizzie married Marvin Traylor. Together they raised two grandchildren; Shant'e Walker-Barber (deceased) and Courtney Walker-Weddington (deceased). Her bonus children are Thurman Taylor, William Traylor, Clay Traylor, Alvin Traylor, Carrie Traylor-Dunn, Calvin Traylor, Jerry Traylor, and Grover Traylor. Grandchildren are Danny Harper, Albert Leigons, Patrick Wayne Hamilton, Vanya Legions, Devia Walker-Curry, Stephanie Lewis, Shant'e Walker-Barber, Monique Crittenton and Courtney Walker-Weddington. She have 25 bonus grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; a host of great-great grandchildren; and a God daughter, Maudie Suggs-Peters.
One can say that Mrs. Lizzie let her light shine so that others could see Christ living in her. Because of the way she lived her life, Mrs. Lizzie would hope that in her memory, you will do an unexpected and an unsolicited act of kindness to an unfortunate soul.
