Betty Walker was born on May 12, 1940 in West Virginia to Edwina Reese and Marvin Walker, Sr. They lived with her grandparents Almeeta Reese and John Henry Williams. At approximately 16 years old Edwina and Betty moved to Chicago. At 18 years old Betty married Fred D. Lyle and out of this union came Camilla Lyle in 1958. Well, Miss Betty was not happy in Chicago and left there in 1967 to start a new life in Los Angeles.
Betty worked at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles for 35 years. She later met a widower Hermie Brown Jr. who had a daughter Michelle and three sons Hermie, Delbert and Courtney. The family merged on Nestor Avenue in Compton, California.
Hermie and Betty loved to travel and go to the casinos. In 2002 Camilla gave birth to Betty's best friend, granddaughter Destiny Blair; the two were inseparable. Hermie passed away in 2012 after 44 years together. Betty continued to go to her favorite place Pechanga Casino and last traveled to Atlanta August of 2016. After battling multiple health challenges Betty made her transition on October 24, 2016 at the age of 76.
She leaves to mourn daughter Camilla Blair (Derrick); two step sons Hermie Brown Jr (Judy) of Cincinnati Ohio and their children and Courtney Brown of Los Angeles; brother Marvin Walker Jr. (Mary) and brother-in-law Ellis Creel; granddaughter Dr. Crystal Adams, whom she loved and was very proud of, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins.
