Mrs.

Walker Valley Pioneer, Dies Mrs. J. A. K. Walker, nee Fanny Airth, a former Canadian missionary to India, and for the past 50 years a resident of Renfrew and Ottawa, died Saturday evening at her home, 480 Cooper Street.

She was in her 84th year. Mrs. Walker, who had been in falling health for some time, was born in Renfrew In 1866. She was a direct descendant of Henry Airth, one of Wellington's Peninsular veterans who, after Waterloo, emigrated to Canada with a large family of stalwart sons. The Airths and their kinsmen were among the first setr tiers and founders of Renfrew, named after their Scottish cla-chan.

Her father was James Airth, and her mother was Ophelia Wright, also of early pioneer stock from the St. Lawrence front. Educated in Renfrew, Mrs. Walker as a young girl taught school in the townships of Hor-ton and Adamston. At the anniversary a few years ago of the Adamston school section she had the pleasure of meeting with many former pupils from all over Canada, who knew her as comely Fanny Airth.

In 1888 she became the bride of a young student, Rev, James Walker, who after brief pastorates in Renfrew and Kingston, isdicated his life to the Canadian Baptist missionary service In India. Went To India Accordingly, from a little echool on the back concession lines, her career of Christian service took her to the teeming life of Kipling's India. Quickly mastering the Telegu dialect, she specialized in the educational direction of missionary work, being stationed at Cocanada, Tuni, Peddapurum and Yellamanchill. For a time she was principal of a school for Eurasian children. With her husband frequently on duty throughout the district, the administration of the isolated mission station was in her charge.

When plague and famine struck, her compound was the refuge of those who sought help from the -white "mem-sahib." Health considerations compelled her return to her Renfrew home with a small family Her husband pre-deceased her in India in 1919. Since that time she has resided in Ottawa where she became prominently identified with church and social work. She was an office holder of First Baptist Church, and assisted in the organization and administration of the Home For Friendless Women. Thus she made her contribution not only to India and to Renfrew but to. Ottawa.
