Maggie Bell Walker was born on September 20, 1931 to the late Claudia Kelly and Benjamin Kelly in Orangeburg, South Carolina. She was the oldest of five
siblings who she love dearly and always spoke highly of. Always telling stories about their fun times growing up and she would say “Those were the good old days.”

Maggie Bell Walker passed away peacefully on June 11, 2022 to our heavenly god above at Yale New Haven Hospital (St. Raphael Campus). She married the love of
her life, Lonnie Walker, in Springfield Garden, New York in 1972. She resided in New York until the passing of her husband but remained in Queens, New York for some time with her daughter Eartha  and with her grandson and granddaughter Leonard and Sharon, until moving to New Haven, CT.

She was employed as a Home Health Aide taking care of the elderly at adult care facilities. Maggie Bell was a hard worker and remain in the field for many years until retiring. She was a member of the Church of Christ, enjoying assisting in church and singing in the choir. She was a Eastern Star as well.

She loved cats and dogs, had plenty. “Nicky” a black poodle, “Midnight” a black cat, “Scruffy” a dachshund, “Shaft” a Maine Coon Cat and the last one was “Tabby” a tiger cat. She would always say when we went grocery shopping ” Don’t forgot about Tabby!” She loves pets so much, she generously gave two to her family members. There were two more chihuahuas “Tiny” and “Chi Chi” given to her loved ones and was so happy about it.

Maggie Bell was strong willed and always spoke what was on her mind “meaning” what she say is what she meant and that’s it. She had similar ways of her mother Claudia “Mama” Kelly this is one. She loved her family and would always say ” I miss my family, my blood!” her passing leaves an emptiness that can’t be filled ever again. We are heartbroken by the loss of Maggie, who was taken from us too soon.

She leave to mourn her brother Samuel Kelly from New Haven, Sister Ada Henderson From Rocky Mountain North Carolina, Grandson Leonard White and Wife Bonnie Taylor White; Granddaughter Sharon Moses Browne, Jayla Browne and Great Grandson Anthony Spencer; a host of many nieces, nephews and cousins from Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Atlanta Georgia.

In addition her deceased family: daughter Eartha White, brother Frank Kelly, twin sister Rosenell Henderson and Lily Mae Britt and many deceased nieces, nephew and other family members and close friends.

She had a special love for her family and close friends. She was proud of her family and once again she would always say “I miss my family, my blood!”
