Obituary

Ola Mae Slaine Walker was born on October 5, 1932, to the late Johnnie Slaine, Sr., and Laura Bloodsaw in Morro, Louisiana.  She was the oldest of eight children.  She departed this life on December 10, 2021.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Lee Jr.; son Wayne; three brothers, Johnnie Jr., Andrew, James; three sisters, Erma Laura, Myrtle; and grandson Jonathan.

 

Ola accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour at age 11 on August 2, 1944. She was baptized on the first Sunday in September at New Mount Zion Baptist Church where she served as a junior usher.

 

After graduating from Sevier High in Ferriday, Louisiana, Ola met Lee Walker, Jr. in 1951, and they were married in 1953 during the Korean War.  To this union four children were born, Wayne, Kenny, Lee, and Vallery.  Ola was a housewife until her children became school age.

 

Ola and Lee wanted to acquire a better life for their family, so they relocated to San Francisco (S.F.), CA in 1966.  Ola joined Friendship B.C. in South S.F. under the leadership of Rev. James Cook.

 

After moving to another area in S.F., Ola abided by the church covenant and united with Calvary Hill Missionary B.C. in Daly City, CA under the leadership of Rev. Charlie Hamilton.  Ola served faithfully with the Deaconess Ministry and as the Mission Board President.  In addition, she was a choir member and Bible class teacher, which was certified by the Southern Baptist Association.

 

In 1988, Ola was blessed to retire after working as a retail clerk for over 21 years at I. Magnin and Company, which was the most exclusive store in S.F. at the time.

 

Shortly thereafter, Ola relocated to Vallejo, CA and united with Second B. C. under the leadership of Rev. Fleetwood E. Irving.  She served faithfully with the Deaconess Ministry for fifteen years and the Trustee Board for two years.  Ola moved to Sacramento, CA in 2003, and later united with New Testament B.C. in North Highlands, CA under the leadership of Rev. Robert Ester.  She faithfully attended the Prayer and Bible Study Class on Wednesday nights and was a member of Mission Circle #4.

 

In 2010, Ola united with New Love Ministries under the leadership of Elder Billy Cummings.  She attended services faithfully until the pandemic outbreak in March 2020; however, she enjoyed watching New Love Ministries on Facebook every Sunday.

 

Ola loved her family.  She was always willing to go the extra mile for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She also loved her church family.

 

In her golden years, Ola enjoyed shopping for hats, suits, and shoes.  She also enjoyed interior decorating, singing old Gospel songs, and classical music.

 

Ola leaves to cherish her memory; sons, Kenny and wife Sherry, and Lee and wife Twianna; daughter Vallery and husband Konstantin; former daughter-in-law, Marsha; grandchildren, Kenitra, Christian, Angelique, Saraiah, Jhamil, and Celeb; great-grandchildren, Jonathan Jr., and Marcel Jr.; sister Ella D. and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
