She was pre-deceased in death by her husband, Raymond Elmer Walker; and son, Charles Raymond Walker; also by her mother, Lexie Clinkscales Gammon; father, George Lee Gammon and wife, Mary Gammon; brother, George Thomas Gammon.

Surviving are her brother, Richard (Pat) Gammon; daughter-in-law, Dianne Hopkins Walker; two grandsons, Mark (Jenna) Walker and their son, Grayson, Matthew Walker; and many nieces and nephews.

Mary Gene was born in Birmingham, Alabama. She was a member of Woodlawn Baptist Church, graduated from Woodlawn High School and Birmingham Southern College. She received her master's degree from the University of South Alabama, Mobile.

Also, was a longtime resident of Orange Beach, moving there in the 1950s upon marrying Raymond.

She retired from the Baldwin County School System where she taught second grade and was member of Alpha Gamma Chapter of DKG (Educators Leadership Organization).

Besides teaching in public schools, her life was devoted to teaching others about her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. After bringing many to a saving knowledge of Christ, she mentored them to the point that many called her their second mother. She exemplified what love is to everyone in her life and was loved in return.
