Obituary for Billie Walker Spalding

On March 2, 1940, Billie Walker made her grand entrance into the world in Denver Colorado. She was chosen (adopted) by William and Evelyn Walker and they took her home to their ranch in Le Veta, Colorado, where she spent her adventurous childhood working and living on a homestead. She grew up with a menagerie of pets and developed a love of history, travel and books. She also gained a love for God and a strong work ethic which she carried with her throughout her life.
In 1958, she met and married Lee Spalding and they had four children; William (Chip), James (Dale), Kimery, and Audra. She considered them her greatest accomplishment in life. Together they shared many adventures and built memories. In the early ‘70s, she studied English at the University of Albuquerque, New Mexico, while raising four children and taught English for a time at a local school.
Later in life Billie was able to meet her biological parents, Florence and Ronald Case and her two full brothers, Dennis and Robert Case. Although her parents and Robert preceded her in death, she remained close to her brother Dennis throughout the rest of her life. Family was her greatest treasure and she loved to have long conversations about current events and family history. She had many unique and diverse careers and volunteer service; a car salesman (person), a part owner of a jewelry store, a real estate agent, a property manager and active with the Kenai Moose and Elks Lodge; becoming the president of the Emblem Club. She was an accomplished musician, painter and writer and was in the process of publishing a history book when she embarked on her last great adventure.
Billie lived in many places. Her love of history and travel kept her busy discovering new areas and opportunities. She eventually settled back in Soldotna, Alaska, where she volunteer her time at the Soldotna Senior Center and with Eastern Star; becoming a member of the Board of the former and an Officer of the latter.
