Helen Gladys Jungman Walker

Our beloved, Helen Gladys Jungman Walker, age 93, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 12, 2022,in Round Rock, Texas.
Born September 12, 1928 in Devine, Texas, to Louis and Clara Jungman, Gladys was the 4th of five daughters. She attended school in Devine and later moved to San Antonio to work at Alamo State Bank. Her sister, Mae, introduced her to her future husband, Willoughby ‘Wib’ Walker and the two were married in 1954. Wib and Gladys moved to Austin, Texas where she worked as a bookkeeper for Texas Commerce Bank. After giving birth to her first son, she decided to stay home and ultimately raise her two boys, Dan, and Barry. She went on to care for other children in their home before returning to the bank until her retirement in 1994.
Gladys enjoyed many years of watching her sons play football and baseball, often taking an active role by serving as a team parent or booster. She would fondly reflect on the countless practices and games to which she drove her boys. Watching her sons grow into admirable men and fathers filled her heart with immense joy. She relished spending time with her grandchildren, Jenna, Lindsey and Stetson, as well as her great-grandchild, Avery. Nothing meant more to her than her family. Gladys was fond of gardening, often sharing the fruits of her labor with others. She and her husband enjoyed garage and estate sales, finding many treasures along the way. Gladys was a devout member of St. Albert the Great Catholic Church, participating in the church clubs and was an active member of the St. Anne’s Society.
Gladys is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Wib; her loving parents, Louis and Clara Jungman; and four cherished sisters, Elizabeth Sollock, Mary Campsey, Laura DuBose, and Alice Mae Capps.
Gladys leaves behind 2 sons Dan Walker (and wife, Aleta) of Round Rock, Texas and Barry Walker (and wife Sherri) of Pflugerville, Texas; three grandchildren, Jenna Stephenson (and husband Tucker) of Bulverde, Texas, Lindsey Walker of Jarrell, Texas and Stetson Walker of Pflugerville, Texas; one great-grandchild, Avery Stephenson of Bulverde, Texas; and was blessed with 55 nieces and nephews whom she loved as her own.
