I met Tillie when she would come visit her mother in the nursing home in Watford. I always looked forward to visiting with her. I got the chance to catch up with her in Minot several years ago. Tillie was such a neat lady!! She will be missed!!

Our condolences to all. I remember first visiting with mom, Imogene, when I was a kid. She was in Denver. She gave me “ The Pogo Papers” a book of an old comic strip. She was always quite animated & glad to see folks.

I heard of Tillie long before I met her. I was just a teenager when Rosemarie Mandan became a force in my life. Tillie had already moved on from Philadelphia but she certainly was not forgotten and isn't to this day. I continually meet people who benefited from her efforts at the AFSC. Although she will be missed, hers was a life well-lived and an inspiration to many at home and beyond. My sincerest sympathies to Reba and all her family and friends.

With sympathy for the family. Tillie, Reba, & their mother Mercy were my next door neighbors while we were attending High School in Sanish.

Reba and family I cannot find the words to express my sorrow over Tillie's passing. She took me into her apartment in Denver after my daughter Renee died. She helped me during one of the most difficult times in my life. I will always remember her laugh she made me laugh even when I didn't know why I was laughing. When you both met my husband Mike and called him "Grandpa" it made him so happy and me as well. I will find comfort in the knowledge that that most wonderful person graced my life.
Love, Deanna.

Reba and all family. Our deepest sympathy to you and family members. In her lifetime she reached out to so many youth and helped them with their educational needs. My brother was ever so thankful for her influence and her encouragement- my brother Alan often reflected how she was a mentor to so many. Tillie will be missed and may God bless her memory.

Please accept our heartfelt condolences over the passing of Tillie Walker. What a special privilege and delight it was to have known such a wonderful elder, who genuinely understood and appreciated heritage both in terms of honoring the past and sharing wisdom with future generations.

Tillie influenced so many people, and left a legacy by inspiring those of us who remain. It was heartwarming to read in the published memorial the many simple and beautiful ways she enjoyed her life. Tillie set an example of a life well-lived, and a life of giving and caring for others.

We know her passing will be felt every day, but we hope you will find comfort in all the memories Tillie left us with. She touched many hearts and honored her family and community. Thank you for sharing her with us. We know that Tillie rests in peace. She is loved.
With sympathy;
