Obituary

Jenny Riek Walker, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother of Akron, PA passed into her eternal rest on Monday, February 3, 2020. She was 78 years old and wife to Arnold Walker. They would have celebrated 52 years of marriage on April 6. Jenny was one of 11 children to Anna (Bonacher) Riek and George Riek. She was born April 13, 1941 near Stuttgart, Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1965. She became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1980. She was a seamstress who retired from Walter Moyer/Gerber sewing factory after nearly 22 years in 2001.

Jenny spent her retirement years enjoying her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to meet new people and often engaged strangers in conversation. She had a generous heart and was always thinking of others. Jenny was a member of the Jehovah’s Witness church and was active in her congregation.

Oh Jenny, until we all meet again! Jehovah willing, we will meet again, soon! Arnie and family, AnnMarie, Heidi and Greg, so very very sorry for this loss. We are thinking of you and hoping each day gets a bit easier. It is only temporary, hang in there. Jenny is such a kind, fun spirited person! She was almost always laughing when I would speak with her. And that accent! Just heartwarming!

Hello Walker family,
I want to send my prayers & sympathy to your family. So sorry for your loss. Jenny was a wonderful person who will be missed a lot. I worked with her at Moyers for many years. Sat right next to her a lot of the time. I totally enjoyed her sense of humor, lovely accent. and all her great advice. Praying the Lord grants you peace during this time of great loss.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you all, Uncle Arnie, Ann, Heidi , Greig and family. We are completely shocked like everyone since receiving the news. Aunt Jen was kind soul who never thought of herself , she always think of others. Such wonderful memories we have growing up as kids and getting together with our cousins/family on weekends/holidays and outings...When you visited she made sure you never went home hungry or without . She will be forever missed until we are with her again! We know many family members up in heaven who were there to greet her home.
