In addition to her parents, Elaina is survived by: a sister – Adelynn Grace Bowers; her grandparents – Steve and Ronda Walker of Metropolis and Leslie Reeder & Rachel King of Noble; aunts – Misty Baker and Kara Youngblood; an uncle Jacob Griffin; as well as cousins, other relatives and many family friends.
Elaina was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother – Jodonna Grimes Reeder.
Elaina was deeply loved by her family and all those who were close to her. She enjoyed many activities and was especially fond of being “stood” and obviously wanted to walk by herself. She was also very inquisitive and liked to “feel” things. Elaina also loved being “surprised” and it never failed to make her giggle. She was an adored even “spoiled” child who will be forever loved by her family. In their words, there just “was not enough of her to go around” to all those who loved her.
A memorial service honoring the life of Elaina Lee Ann Walker will be held Thursday evening, August 9, 2018, at 7 PM at Bethel Christian Church, 12245 Woodville Road, Kevil, Kentucky. Pastor Nate Hillebrand will officiate. The family will receive relatives and friends from 6 PM – 7 PM Thursday at the church.
