In Loving Memory
May 5, 1935 – November 24, 2017
Jacqueline Cramblitt Walker, 82, passed away on Friday, November 24, 2017. Growing up in Washington D.C., as a young adult, Jackie worked as a librarian and with the CIA overseas, as an administrative assistant, then served her family as a home-maker and assisted with her husband Ezell’s, paving and grading business. Later, she was a Circuit Court clerk for the State of Alabama. Jackie, along with Ezell, was a past member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Christ Anglican Church, eventually joining the Catholic faith and the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ezell, and brother, Frankie Cramblitt, and parents, Leonard and Clara Cramblitt. Jackie is survived by sister, Charlene Peterson; nephew, Frankie Cramblitt, Jr.; daughters, Wendy Goldstein (Greg) and Leslie Hoffman; step-sons, Stanley (Debra), Benjamin, James, and Harold; grandchildren, Hannah Hoffman, Aaron Goldstein, and Emma Goldstein; step- grandchildren, Jamie Parker, and Benjamin Walker, Jr.
Jackie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was elegant, kind, smart, beautiful, and giving. She made the lives of her friends and family better for knowing her, and stepped up to help whenever we had a need. She was level headed, strong, and always knew what to do in difficult situations. She loved art, nature, and the years spent living on Dog River with her family. She spent several years devoted to taking care of Ezell (Jim) as his health declined. She brought out the good in all of us, and we will miss her deeply.
