Betty Jo passed away October 22, 2023 in Trenton, TN, at Trenton Health and Rehabilitation Facility. She was born July 29, 1944, in Memphis, TN, to parents James Nathan and Agirtha Hazel Hall Bizzle. She was raised on the family farm in Memphis, TN and graduated from Whitehaven High School. In 1963 she married John “Jackie” Edward Walker to whom she remained married  for 56 years until his death in January, 2020. Betty Jo graduated from Beauty School, and became a homemaker who could do just about anything. An accomplished seamstress, she made everything from curtains to formal dresses. She was an active member of Glendale Baptist Church in Glen, MS, and she loved her church family deeply.  

She was preceded in death by beloved daughter, Pallie Denise Walker Gibens, her parents, husband Jackie, brothers Earl (Doris Jean) Bizzle, and Bobby Bizzle. 

She is survived by a daughter, Jackie Rene (Dr. Jim) Williams, and a son, Darrell Walker, all of Trenton, TN, and son-in-law Ricky Gibens of Corinth, MS. Her grandchildren were the loves of her life—Abigail Hall Williams of Nashville, TN, Annabel Frances Williams Anderson (Ryan) of Louisville, KY; Tyler Heavener of Corinth, MS, Kade Lee Walker (and special friend Paige Pennington) of Trenton, TN; Evan Gibens (Stacy) and Nathan Gibens of Corinth, MS; and precious great-grandson, Wyatt Evan Gibens.  She also leaves behind many treasured friends and caregivers in Trenton. 

Affectionately known as “Miss Betty” to many, she will be most remembered for her fierce love of the Lord, her church, her family, and for making the best scratch biscuits and fried chicken in the South.  Magnolia Funeral Home has been honored to serve the family of Mrs. Betty Jo Walker.
