In Loving Memory

May 5, 1935 – November 24, 2017

Mobile, AL

 

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. 

A service will be held at the Alabama State Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Spanish Fort, AL (across from Blakeley State Park) Friday, Dec 1, 2017 at 1:30.  Reception will follow at 118 N. Lafayette Street in Mobile. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to any of the churches listed here or to an organization of your choice.  Expressions of condolence may be offered at www.hughesfh.com.   Arrangements are by Hughes Funeral Home in Daphne, AL.

    I recently thought about Ezell and Jackie, wondering about how they were. I had lost track of them since they left Christ Episcopal Church to join Christ Anglican Church many years ago. I always enjoyed their company and celebrated several times at their house on the River. They left a trail of loving relationships throughout their lives. I rejoice with you in the celebration of Jackie’s life at this time.

    I am so sorry for your painful losses of both Ezell and Jackie within a relatively short period of time. Jackie sounds like she was an amazing woman, and I know her legacy lives on through her children. As time passes, I hope your many wonderful memories of her will be a comfort to you.

    I am deeply saddened to learn of Mrs. Walkers passing and also of Mr. Walkers passing… My goodness… I didn’t know. I’m so sorry..Both Mr and Mrs Walker were the kindest and sweetest couple… You see, I used to work at their doctors office several yrs ago and remember meeting them over 20 years ago.. I left the Ofc several years ago. I feel terrible I lost track of them. We had a bond together as my son served in the United States Marine Corp as did Mr Walker.. I was always amazed at how tall and straight Mr Walker stood. They would always ask about my son and we would chat… So sad, just a lovely couple.. May God Bless them and their family and friends..

    Jackie was a long time, dear friend. She was beautiful inside and out, a faithful Christian and a perfect “lady”. I will miss her sweet smile and kind words, but I will never, ever forget her.
